Drew Estate has announced a variety of new cigars for its ACID portfolio ahead of next week’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

First up are ACID Blondie Green and Kuba Kuba Green, candela-wrapped versions of the ACID Blondie and Kuba Kuba.

“The progression of ACID to include the Candela wrapper expressions began years ago during trips to the tobacco plantations throughout the world,” said Jonathan Drew, the company’s co-founder and president, in a press release. “Candela is one of the friendliest leaves to farmers and they love to grow it. Crazy.”

Both cigars not only feature the green wrapper, but also bands with a green background instead of the blue color found on the regular versions. The ACID Blondie Green has previously been offered in the single serve G-Fresh format.

The Blondie Green is priced at $5.74 per cigar and comes in boxes of 40, while the Kuba Kuba Green is $10 and comes in 24-count boxes.

Drew Estate is also adding Blondie Red and Blondie Gold. The Red uses a Cameroon wrapper, whereas the Gold uses a Sumatran wrapper. The normal Blondie uses a Connecticut wrapper.

Finally, the company is adding the Candela wrapper to the Krush Classic format, a 4 x 32 cigarillo. It carries an MSRP of $2.20 per cigarillo and is sold in 10-count tins that come five to a brick.

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
