Nica Rustica Adobe, the second expression in Drew Estate’s Nica Rustica line, is shipping to retailers. Announced in May, Nica Rustica Adobe comes with a Habano wrapper, Brazilian binder and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa.
The medium- to full-bodied cigar is available in a 6 x 52 Toro ($5.76), a 5 x 43 Robusto ($5.20) and a 6 x 60 Gordo ($6.48). It comes in 25-count boxes that are adorned with original artwork designed by Subculture Studios, which features Estelí’s official symbol, El Brujito, an estimated 6,000-year-old petroglyph of a native shaman that was discovered on a rock atop a mountain near the city.
“Nica Rustica Adobe presents a daring adventure into the authentically rugged and rustic countryside surrounding Estelí,” Drew Estate Founder and President, Jonathan Drew, said in a press release. “The spicy and bold Habano, we call ‘Adobe’ offers smokers a glimpse into the distinguished beauty and bold character of Estelí and her people. You don’t need a passport to experience Estelí, just spark up this six-buck-chuck and you are magically transported to our proud Nicaraguan home.”
