At Tobacco Plus Expo 2022 (TPE 2022), Drew Estate will launch the ACID 20 Connecticut Toro. As the name indicates it’s a Connecticut Shade version of the ACID 20. The cigar was announced January 20th on Drew Estate’s Freestyle Live show.
The Toro size measures 6 x 54, but it is not the first Connecticut Shade cigar under the ACID 20 brand. Last year, Drew Estate released the ACID 20 Bronxilla, a 5 x 54 Connecticut Shade ACID 20. The Bronxilla was a release for Alliance Cigar. The Toro will be a national release that is available to retailers through Drew Estate.
The ACID 20 Connecticut features a Connecticut Shade wrapper, Indonesian binder, and Nicaraguan fillers. The cigars are packaged in 20-count boxes with pricing set at $10.75 per cigar.
“ACID is straight OG, and it singlehandedly challenged the status quo and old guard traditions and brought a new philosophy based on freedom, diversity and individuality into the premium cigar world,” says Jonathan Drew, Founder and President of Drew Estate in a press release. “Deeply embedded in each of the ACID 20 cigars is an irreverent celebration of life that explodes with taste and emotion on each delicious and inspirational puff, serving as a powerful homage to ACID’s historic legacy. Thank you to everyone who has shared our ACID Cigar vision … we love you for believing in us during the early days when people would say ‘you dudes ain’t shit.’”
Drew Estate is partnering with Cigars Direct for an online launch event scheduled for Feb. 3 beginning at 7 p.m. Eastern. The event will be broadcast live on Cigars Direct’s Facebook page at facebook.com/Cigarsdirect.fan.
TPE 2022 runs from January 26 and January 28, 2022. The cigars are expected to ship after the completion of TPE.
