The ACID Cartel Subculture from Drew Estate is heading back to the market, this time as an exclusive release for Michigan-based JML Wholesale, which operates approximately 80 retail stores under the Wild Bill’s Tobacco name.

The 5 x 54 robusto was first released in 2007 and uses a Connecticut shade wrapper over an undisclosed binder and filler. The company says the profile is smooth and lush with zest of sweetness in the aroma. It comes packaged in 24-count boxes that have an MSRP of $238.80.

“Next year we are entering a huge milestone for Drew Estate, the 20th Anniversary of ACID cigars,” said Jonathan Drew, president and founder of Drew Estate, via a press release. “JML has long been more than just a partner to us in Michigan, they are true friends. We are excited to be re-launching the ACID Cartel with them, bringing a piece of ACID history back to the forefront of a landmark moment for Drew Estate.”

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
