The IPCPR Trade Show is not just about cigars, it also focuses on the pipe industry.  At this year’s trade show, Drew Estate has made a splash into the world of pipe tobacco.  The Drew Estate Classics was officially launched at the trade show.  As a part of this line, the company has made eight distinct pipe tobacco blends.  The pipe tobacco will be sold in traditional rounded pipe tobacco tins.

Several of the names come from areas in New York, which is where Drew Estate co-founders Jonathan Drew and Marvin Samel are from.

According to John Brooke of Drew Estate, the pipe tobacco is being made in Denmark.  Here are the eight pipe tobacco blends and some information around it:

Drew Estate Classics: Starting Clockwise from upper left:
Heirloom Cherry, Grand Central, Harvest on the Hudson,
and Central Park Slow

1.Heirloom Cherry: This is considered to be a mild and aromatic blend and as the name indicates – cherry flavor to it.

2.Grand Central: This is described as a “mellow blend of tobaccos” that has a “dense aroma of lightly toasted burley and bright Virginias”

3.Harvest on Hudson: This is described as a mild blend that has apple flavors mixed with Virginia, Burley, and Cavendish tobaccos.  The name is derived from going north of New York City via the Hudson River to the orchards to pick apples.

4.Central Park Stroll: This is described as having the aromas similar to standing outside a bakery.  The notes described include chocolate, vanilla, and caramel.

6.Toasted Black Cavendish: This one features toasted cavendish, but also gives way to notes of “vanilla and fire cured tobaccos”.

7.Meat Pie: This one claims to be a very different pipe tobacco blend.  It has a pungent, smoky medium-bodied smoke profile.
