Drew Estate Announces Kentucky Fire Cured Hog's Tooth, Subculture Exclusive for Famous Smoke Shop

EASTON, PA--(Marketwired - October 28, 2015) - When Drew Estate releases a new Subculture Cigar made exclusively for your cigar store, that's reason enough to party. "Hog's Tooth," a new frontmark that was recently added to the Kentucky Fire Cured cigars line. Better yet, Famous Smoke Shop customers will have a chance to be the first to try it and buy it during the official release party taking place at Famous Smoke Shop's retail store in Easton, PA at 5:00 PM on Thursday, October 29th, 2015.

Rolled to a 6" x 46 Cuban Corona, the Kentucky Fire Cured Hog's Tooth is blended with Kentucky fire cured tobacco, plus Nicaraguan and Brazilian fillers, neatly wrapped in a savory Mexican San Andrés leaf. The cigars are also being presented in the traditional Kentucky Fire Cured craft paper soft packs of 10 cigars.

"We are constantly looking to expand the Fire Cured segment that we so passionately believe in," said Jonathan Drew in a recent press release. "Hot on the heels of the second annual Kentucky Barn Smoker event in Hopkinsville, KY, this new Hog's Tooth size will be right up any cigar nerd's alley, and we're excited to be able to bring it to market exclusively with our friends at Famous Smoke Shop."

Until now, the Kentucky Fire Cured line has been available in three sizes nationwide under the Drew Estate MUWAT imprint: "Just a Friend" (6" x 52), "Fat Molly" (5" x 56), and "Chunky" (4" x 46). "Hog's Tooth" (6" x 46) will fall under their Subculture banner, an exclusive line of limited edition cigars granted to only "the most deserving and devout retailers across the nation."

Unfamiliar with Kentucky fire cured tobacco? It has been around for over 200 years, and has been used mainly for pipe tobacco, chaw, and snuff. After harvesting, the tobaccos are hung in large barns where hardwood fires are lit and kept at a low smolder. Depending on the tobacco and the process used, it can take anywhere from three days to 10 weeks to cure. The result is an intensely fragrant tobacco that is lower in sugar and higher in nicotine with a flavor that's comparable to the smokey taste associated with peaty scotches. Depending on the type of wood used during the curing process, nuances of roasted hickory, oak, or maple are also revealed in the smoke. When blended with the Nicaraguan-Brazilian filler core and inherently sweet San Andrés maduro wrapper, Hog's Tooth yields a well-balanced and complex smoke consisting of earthy, smokey, and woody elements with a subtle note of sweetness on the finish.

If you've never had an authentic Kentucky fire cured cigar, start with the Hog's Tooth by Drew Estate. Tickets for the Hog's Tooth launch party are going for $29.99 and will include a complimentary Hog's Tooth cigar, one cocktail, and a BBQ dinner. Pre-order your ticket to this event at Eventbrite here. As always, guests and patrons alike will be able to buy Hog's Tooth bundles during the event, but if you want to beat them to the punch, they're also available at Famous Smoke Shop's online cigar store, right now.
