Drew Estate is bringing back the Chateau Real brand, available exclusively to Drew Diplomat Digital retailers. Packaged in 20-count boxes, Chateau Real is available in a 6 x 50 Toro ($6.75), a 5 x 50 Robusto ($6.50), and a 7 x 50 Churchill ($7).
The blend features Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos wrapped in Connecticut Shade leaf.
Drew Estate introduced the Chateau Real brand to the domestic market just prior to the opening of La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Estelí, Nicaragua, in 2007. The bargain-priced brand was eclipsed by Liga Privada, Undercrown, and Herrera Esteli.
“Chateau, along with all of its secrets has since become one of the most sought-after Drew Estate Ghosts, with collectors keeping the brand and its folklore alive,” Jonathan Drew, founder and president of Drew Estate, said in a press release. “We simply had to resurrect this prince of a brand. I’m absolutely thrilled that we are bringing affordable brands to market.”
