Drew Estate has recently announced a pair of “Barn Smoker” events, gatherings of cigar fans at tobacco farms in Connecticut and Kentucky, and there’s a new vitola in the Kentucky Fire Cured line coming to the latter. At the Oct. 3 event being held in Hopkinsville, Ken., the company will give attendees a new size called Yard Bird.
A company spokesperson has declined to provide additional information about the cigar. All that is known about the Yard Bird is that it is being called an “unreleased” vitola and will be included in the event’s goodie bag, which also includes the Fat Molly, Just a Friend, Chunky, Kyotos, Delfinas and Flying Pig vitolas of the Kentucky Fire Cured line, as well as a Liga Privada “A.”
Tickets for the event were $45 but are sold out.
