First released by Orleans Group at the 2014 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, Dram Cigars for Whiskey was conceived as a way to pair specific cigar blends with specific whiskeys in order to bring out the best flavors in each while enjoying both. The first three included blends using three different wrappers: Dram Cask No. 1 which incorporates a Connecticut wrapper, Dram Cask No. 2 which uses a corojo wrapper and Dram Cask No. 3 which includes a habano wrapper.
In June, a new blend, this time from Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. of E.P. Carrillo was released. The Dram Cask No. 4 is composed of a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper covering a Ecuadorian Sumatra binder as well as filler tobacco hailing from Nicaragua.
