Drew Estate Ships Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Flying Pig


The new Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Flying Pig is now available, but there’s only one place to get it.


Today Drew Estate announced that the cigar has been released to Pappy & Co., which has added the cigar to its website. While Drew Estate lists the price at $191.80 per box, the online store has it priced at $190 per box of 12.

Like the other Flying Pigs that Drew Estate produces for a number of its cigar lines, the Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Flying Pig measures 3 15/16 x 60 and comes in double perfecto vitola with a tapered head and foot.

The blend features a barrel fermented “tapa Negra” wrapper over a Mexican San Andrés base wrapper, as well as aged Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, personally selected by Jonathan Drew, according to a press release from Drew Estate.

“We deeply value the partnership Drew Estate has grown with the Van Winkle family over the years,” Drew said, “and what better way to celebrate it than with the unveiling of this exclusive masterpiece!”

“We are excited to offer something exclusive to our Pappy & Company cigar enthusiast customers,” added Carrie Van Winkle Greener, co-Founder of Pappy & Company. “The Flying Pig is such a unique product and unlike anything else on the market. Its distinct size and signature pig-tail, makes this a one of a kind cigar, an instant classic.”

Production numbers have not yet been announced.

About the author

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 the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
