Drew Estate has begun shipping the Florida Sun Grown Limited Edition Trunk Press Toro to accounts nationwide.

The FSG Limited Edition Toro debuted in 2016 at the company’s Florida Barn Smoker. It was then sold in limited quantities at Corona Cigar Co., the Florida retailer owned by Jeff Borysiewicz, who also owns the Claremont, Fla. farm where some of the tobacco comes from.

It features a different blend from the typical Florida Sun Grown blend. It uses a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, instead of the original’s Brazilian wrapper; a Mexican binder, whereas the original uses Honduran habano, and fillers from Honduras, Nicaragua and one-full leaf of Florida sun grown corojo.

“Working on the FSG Limited has been an exciting and unique experience,” said Willy Herrera, master blender for Drew Estate, in a press release. “Blending tobaccos that haven’t been grown in Florida in decades present some challenges, especially since the heavy, mineral-rich soil in Central Florida gives the tobacco a one of a kind, distinctive flavor profile. In addition, making it a trunk press style only adds to the remarkable smoking experience.”

The cigar is priced at $15.79 and packaged in 10-count boxes. It is only being offered to Drew Diplomat Retailers. The company is not disclosing production numbers.
