Drew Estate Announces Kentucky Fire Cured Hog’s Tooth, Subculture Exclusive for Famous Smoke Shop
October 28, 2015 (Miami, FL) – Drew Estate will be releasing a new size of Kentucky Fire Cured called “Hog’s Tooth” as a Subculture exclusive for Famous Smoke Shop in Easton, PA. The release party will take place at Famous Smoke Shop’s retail store on October 29th, 2015. Attendees of the event will be the first to purchase and smoke the new size.
The Kentucky Fire Cured Hog’s Tooth cigar is presented in a 6" × 46 vitola and will be packed in the traditional Kentucky Fire Cured Soft Pack 10 craft paper packaging. The blend is based upon the original Kentucky Fire Cured blend, and features Kentucky seed tobacco, grown and fire cured in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, along with Nicaraguan and Brazilian fillers. The cigar is wrapped with a Mexican San Andres wrapper.
When asked about the exclusive size, Jonathan Drew commented: “Friends, consumers, and retail operators all over the world have been sending me emails and texts asking how we make the KENTUCKY FIRE CURED cigars taste so good. My response, ‘It’s All About The Smoke’… For many decades, people have been smoking all sorts of luxury smoked consumables, including Scotch, steak, fish, and damn near anything consumable. The demand for that smoky burnt taste has only gotten stronger due to the long finish and thick layers of textured, southern delight. Today, we are proud to bring the newest size into the Fire Cured Family with our dear friends at Famous Smoke Shop. Wisely called ‘Hog’s Tooth’, this long corona size is perfect for the Kentucky Fire Cured line, and is going to make you scream out, right from your porch at home – ‘It’s All About The Smoke’!!!”
Famous Smoke Shop Owner Arthur Zaretsky stated that, “Drew Estate has been a long-time partner of Famous Smoke Shop for many years and, over that time period, we’ve worked on numerous projects together. The Hog’s Tooth is our newest and one of our most exciting. The Kentucky Fire Cured cigars sell extremely well for us and we look forward to seeing how the new size fits into the already stellar lineup.”
The in-store launch party will take place on October 29th at Famous Smoke Shop, located at 90 Mort Dr., Easton, PA 18040. The event ticket ($29.99) will include one Hog’s Tooth cigar, one cocktail, and a BBQ dinner. Bundles of Hog’s Tooth will also be available for purchase at the event.

Drew Estate Announces ACID Supercell, Subculture Exclusive for Fogue & Bates in Tulsa, OK
October 29, 2015 (Miami, FL) – Drew Estate will be releasing a new Subculture cigar for Fogue & Bates in Tulsa, OK, called ACID Supercell. The new cigar will be released at an in-store event at Fogue & Bates on November 19th, 2015. Supercell will be available exclusively at the Fogue & Bates retail shop.
The new ACID Supercell is presented in a 4¾" x 43 vitola, and the blend is based on the ACID Toast blend. ACID Toast has become a popular choice among ACID smokers who are looking for a fuller-bodied ACID cigar. The blend features a maduro wrapper from the San Andres Valley and has rich tobacco notes underlying the sweet taste of the ACID infusion.
When asked about the new ACID Supercell, Jonathan Drew said that, “James George at Fogue & Bates understands the ethos of Drew Estate. He has become a virtual extension of our vision, and drives it straight to consumers in the Midwest market. The new ACID Supercell has been meticulously created to honor James for everything he has added to our journey. The Supercell is stupid fresh. If you find yourself in Tulsa, definitely stop by Fogue & Bates. It’s an awesome shop run by an awesome team that we call family.”
James George, owner of Fogue & Bates, commented that, “The Supercell project started four years ago, with the idea that the Toast is my favorite ACID blend. The one problem was that the larger size was sometimes too large for the occasion. Sometimes you just don’t have an hour to commit to a cigar. From there, Supercell was born. After four years and several blend iterations, the Supercell blend is what we’ve landed on, and I’m extremely excited about it. My relationship with Drew Estate over the years has been a fantastic partnership, and I truly believe that Drew Estate is the most innovative company in the industry. I’m happy to be partnered up with them for Supercell.”
