In July, we reported that Drew Estate was planning on adding an event-only exclusive cigar for its Barn Smoker events. Today, at the 2015 Kentucky Barn Smoker, the company has formally released the cigar.

The MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Yard Bird is a 5 x 50 torpedo that will be available not only at Barn Smoker events, but other select events.

“The Drew Estate team is ultra passionate about Fire Cured tobaccos. We’ve played a major role in creating and expanding this new segment of Fire Cured cigars, and the annual Kentucky Barn Smoker is our celebration of Fire Cured tobaccos,” said Jonathan Drew, the company’s co-founder, in a press release. “The new ‘Yard Bird’ size is our commemorative size for this event, and we will be bringing it out at more DE events soon.”

This is the ninth release in the MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured line, which debuted in 2013. It uses a Kentucky-grown fire-cured tobacco alongside tobaccos from Brazil and Nicaragua in the filler with two wrappers, including a Mexican San Andrés leaf.
