Drew Estate Releases MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured


Last Friday, Drew Estate’s much-anticipated MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured (KFC) was offered for sale for the first time at an event at Corona Cigar Company in Orlando, Fla. and the store is now offering the cigars for sale via its website. While the event was not a scheduled release party, it effectively served as one for the cigars which at one point were discussed as a late summer release.

A pair of videos added to Corona Cigar Co.’s Instagram feed on Monday afternoon featured Drew Estate Chairman Jonathan Drew thanking the store for their participation in what he described as “the nationwide release of the Kentucky Fire Cured cigar from Drew Estate.”


The My Uzi Weighs a Ton Kentucky Fired Cured line extension was first announced on April 2 and were on display at the Drew Estate and Joya de Nicaragua booth at the 2013 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show. At that time, they were expected to be at retail in October but delays were made known during recent months. While Corona currently has the cigars in stock, it’s unclear when Drew Estate will begin shipping the cigars nationally.

The Kentucky Fire Cured line updates the original MUWAT blend with a fire cured wrapper leaf as well as incorporating limited amounts as part of the filler.


It is being released in three sizes: a 6 x 52 called “Just a Friend;” a 5 x 56 dubbed “Fat Molly” and a 4 x 46 vitola called “Chunky,” all being packaged in 10-count bundles wrapped in the familiar MUWAT craft paper wrapping. Single stick pricing ranges from $6.50 to $8.50.

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.
