MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Review

The Label Factor:

The first that comes to mind when I look at this label is the resemblance to a sign you might find in front of a General Store in a small town, probably right next to the saloon. With the name of the stick coming from the use of Fire Cured tobacco from Kentucky, I feel pretty confident saying this is exactly the rural vibe that Drew Estate was going for. Mission: Accomplished.

Liga Privada Papas Fritas Review

The Label Factor:

I think the majority of Papas Fritas marketing money went to the kick-ass packaging as opposed to the somewhat subdued label. That’s not to say the label is ugly; it’s not. It just doesn’t quite live up to the awesomeness that is the rest of the Liga Privada line.

Nica Rustica Review

The Label Factor:

The yellow and red colors on the Nica Rustica paint a stark contrast to the Undercrown and Liga Privada lines that Drew Estate has become synonymous with. The label itself appears to be made out of a thick, leather-like substance reminiscent of the Herrera Esteli. Against the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, it works well. When combined with the 50-count boxes these come housed in, you have a cigar that does a great job standing out on the shelf.
