The Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve line, the collaboration between Drew Estate and Pappy Van Winkle is receiving two new sizes. Today, Drew Estate announced the addition of the new Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Barrel Fermented Churchill and the special limited edition Pappy Drew Limitada. These cigars join the current Robusto and Toro offerings and will be sold exclusively at Pappy & Company, the online store of the Van Winkle Family.
According to Drew Estate co-founder Jonathan Drew, “I just checked the shipment in the Miami Warehouse yesterday. We really went out of our way to make sure that people could order them, and receive them in time for this year’s holiday season.”
The Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Barrel Fermented cigar is a small batch project made at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Esteli, Nicaragua. The cigar is 100 percent long filler. It features a barrel-cemented “tapa Negra” style wrapper over a Mexican San Andres base wrapper. The blend also incorporates aged Nicaraguan fillers that were personally selected by Drew Estate co-founder Jonathan Drew. The cigar itself is designed to complement a Pappy Van Winkle bourbon or rye product.
The new Churchill is a 7 x 48 vitola. It is packaged in ten count boxes priced at $17.00 per cigar or $170.00 per box.
As for the Pappy Drew Limitada, it is a 4 7/8 x 60 barrel head shaped vitola that is similar to the Liga Privada Unico Serie Feral Flying Pig. The Pappy Drew Limitada will be sold in three packs, but will only be available as gift when consumers purchase at least one box each of the Churchill, Toro, and Robusto sizes.
The new sizes are the first line extensions to the Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Barrel Fermented since it officially launched in April 2015.
