W. Curtis Draper in Washington, DC will mark their 125th anniversary this year and will be releasing four limited edition cigars made by some of industry’s biggest names as part of a year long celebration.
The first release comes from Pete Johnson of Tatuaje, who will be producing a special Cabaiguan that is “reminiscent of the famed Draper’s 120th Anniversary blend.” To celebrate the new cigar and the store’s anniversary, both of Draper’s locations will have release parties: Friday, February 3 at their downtown DC location, and Saturday, February 4 at their Bethesda, Md. location. Both events will be from 12 noon – 6 pm.
The other three anniversary cigars will come from Guillermo León of La Aurora Cigars, Jorge Padrón of Padrón, and Carlito Fuente of Arturo Fuente Cigars. Specifics on the blends of each cigar and the subsequent release dates are still to be announced.
Each production will be limited to just 250 boxes, with releases set for April, July and October.
