Drew Estate has announced an exclusive size of its MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Line for Alliance Cigar. The MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Fightin’ 69th is slated to eighth vitola made in Drew Estate’s Fire Cured line. The cigar will be distributed exclusively through Alliance Cigar where it will be available for retailers to order.
In a press release announcing the Fightin’ 69th, Alliance Cigar CEO and Founder Tom Sullivan said, “We are honored to have been given this opportunity by our friends at Drew Estate. I’ve worked with Kentucky Fired Cured tobaccos for many years but never in conjunction with a premium cigar. Jonathan and his team have shown once again that their creativity and ability to create new and innovative products is second to none.”
Jonathan Drew, Drew Estate Founder commented, “Everyone knows that DE is a pioneer and brand champion for the FIRE CURED segment of cigars. What people may not know is just how special the new Fighting’ 69th is to DE as a company. The Fightn’ 69th KFCC size was created for one of the company’s closest friends and mentors, Tommy Sullivan, so we had to make sure that it blows people’s minds when they smoke it. The Fightn’ 69th is like a fire cured explosion of taste and aroma. It’s Fire Cured beyond the acceptable limits!”
Plans are for the Fightn’ 69th to begin shipping in October 2015. The cigars will be packaged in ten count soft packs. Each pack will be priced at $74.95.
This is not the first release for Drew Estate to Alliance Cigar. Two years ago, there were two exclusive sizes of core MUWAT line called Kemosabe and WOPR made available to Alliance Cigar.
