A collaboration between the Van Winkle family, owners of Pappy & Company, and Drew Estate, Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented cigars pays homage to the legacy of Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle in the bourbon world more than a century ago. Every Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented cigar features a Tapa Negra-style dark fire-cured and barrel-aged wrapper over a Mexican San Andres base wrapper, with Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaraguan and Kentucky fire-cured filler tobaccos.
The Corona Viva’s narrow ring gauge accentuates the barrel-fermented tobacco presence in the Pappy Van Winkle blend.
“Both the Van Winkle family and Drew Estate built their reputations on being painstakingly committed to producing artisanal, high-quality and handcrafted products,” Carrie Van Winkle Greener, co-founder of Pappy & Company, said in a press release. “Our shared passion for those traditions stands at the center of every Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented cigar, and the new Corona Viva format extends and deepens our mutual legacy for producing authentic, handcrafted and high-quality products.”
Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Barrel Fermented Corona cigars are packaged in 10-count boxes with a retail price of $160/box or $16/cigar.
