Drew Estate has announced that it will begin the full release of two new vitolas of its Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Barrel Fermented line.

The first of the two new cigars is a Churchill (7 x 48, $17). It was added to the Pappy & Co. website, Drew Estate’s partner on the project, earlier this year. The other is the Pappy Drew Limitada (4 7/8 x 60) a cigar offered to those who purchase a box of all three vitolas—Churchill, Robusto and Toro—of the Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Barrel Fermented line.


Per the Pappy & Co. website customers will be sent one three-pack of Limitadas as a gift for purchasing at least one box of each size. The website states that no matter how many boxes total are ordered, customers can only receive one three-pack.

The Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented is produced at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Estelí, Nicaragua. It uses a Kentucky tapa negro wrapper towardst he top of the cigar and a Mexican San Andrés wrapper on the bottom. Underneath that is a Nicaraguan binder and Kentucky and Nicaraguan fillers.

Pappy & Co. is the licensing company operated by the Van Winkle family. It produces a variety of products centered around the famous Pappy Van Winkle whiskey.
