Tulsa, Okla. retailer Fogue & Bates will be getting a store exclusive in Drew Estate’s ACID line next month, as the manufacturer announced that it will be sending the store the ACID Supercell, a 4 3/4 x 43 vitola with a blend that is based on the ACID Toast.
The ACID Toast is known as being one of the fuller bodied offerings in the ACID line, with a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper that offers rich tobacco notes that underly the sweet taste of the ACID infusion. The Supercell project has been four years in the making according to James George, owner of Fogue & Bates, who via a press release said that the Toast was his favorite ACID blend but that he found its 6 x 50 toro vitola and one hour smoking time was often too much for the moment. Wanting a smaller version, he and Drew Estate began working on a blend that would work in the smaller format.
The cigar will debut during an in-store event on Nov. 19. Pricing has not yet been disclosed, but a representative from Drew Estate told halfwheel that the ACID Supercell will be an ongoing production release.
