The Pope of Greenwich Village

The Pope of Greenwich Village, a cigar released in 2015 as a part of Smoke Inn’s small batch MicroBlend Series, is making a return.

The Pope of Greenwich Village features a Mexican San Andres wrapper, Connecticut Stalk Cut Habano binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan and Brazilian Mata Fina filler tobaccos. The cigar is offered in one size -a 6 x 40 Short Lancero. The cigars are packaged in ten-count craft paper soft packs with an MSRP of $99.95 per ten-count pack. The packs will debut on May 27th on a virtual event hosted by Jonathan Drew and Abe Dababneh and will exclusively be sold through Smoke Inn.

“Working with Jonathan Drew and the folks at Drew Estate back in 2015 to create the Pope Of Greenwich Village was a milestone in Smoke Inn’s history,” says Abe Dababneh proprietor of Smoke Inn, in a press release. “It has been a fan favorite. I am elated to see this Smoke Inn Micro Blend return for the public to enjoy!”

Jonathan Drew, Drew Estate’s Founder and President, added that the film, “’Pope of Greenwich Village’” was set in an Italian neighborhood in New York and brings us back to our NYC roots in a such a clever way. Like the movie, Pope is a character study that’s bold and unusual, as the flavor characteristics are enhanced by the smaller ring gauge. The Pope of Greenwich Village is a concept cigar which reminds us that the cigar business is not just business, it’s also a lot of fun.”
