Add the Drew Dominicana to the list of cigars that have gotten quiet releases into the retail world, as this week Atlantic Cigar publicized the line’s availability in an email sent to customers.

While little is known about the specifics of the Drew Dominicana, it’s a line with three wrapper options — shade, maduro and rosado — and it’s a long filler, non-infused cigar. The retailer says that all three wrapper options are very close in color and that they are said to be made in the Dominican Republic, but the factory has not been disclosed.


In the maduro version, Atlantic Cigar lists a Churchill (7x 50, $8.50), Corona (5 3/4 x 46, $7.25), Robusto (5 x 54, $7.45) and Toro (6 x 52, $7.95). The shade option offers a Robusto (5 x 54, $7.75), Toro (6 x 52, $8.75), Churchill (7 x 50, $9) and Corona (5 3/4 x 46, $7.50), while the rosado option has just two sizes, a Robusto (5 x 54, $8.25), Toro (6 x 52, $8.75),

Each size option comes in 20-count boxes, and a spokesperson for Atlantic Cigar told halfwheel that they received 20 boxes of each size and wrapper combination. It was noted that the cigars were received prior to the Aug. 8 deadline imposed by FDA, and that they were not optimistic that more would be available in the foreseeable future.

An email sent to Drew Estate seeking comment about the Drew Dominicana line has not been returned.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
