Drew Estate's Florida Barn Smoker

A year ago, we ran a story about Corona Cigar Co. owner Jeff Borysiewicz's Clermont, Fla. tobacco farm and how it might have been destined for an eventual Drew Estate blend. This past weekend, Drew Estate gave some of its die hard fans a taste of that blend: Florida Sun Grown (which is also the name Jeff chose for the tobacco he's growing).

Jeff is the first person to grow premium cigar tobacco in Florida since the 1970s. History's being made here, and the Corona and Drew Estate's teams helped smokers wrap their heads around it all with tours of the Corona curing barn (led by Jonathan Drew), as well as an explanation of the blending process from Drew Estate Master Blender Willy Herrera.
