    Балтика beer? But it tastes like donkeys wee… Or that is the point of the review?

    Well, I have never tasted donkey wee, but I have tasted well over 500 different beers. Балтика is not particularly my favorite, but it’s certainly not bad. The point of the review is for the cigar, not particularly the beer. The only reason the beer is in the pic is so that the reader has an understanding of what I was drinking when I enjoyed the smoke. It’s not particularly a pairing suggestion. Like wine, scotch, and cigars, I have NEVER had a beer that I would consider so terrible that I would compare it to Donkeys Wee….lol Thanks for reading!

    Personally, I am tired of these jaw breaker sticks being the “in” thing. AND I am not fond of too many of JD blends, mainly because I think they are a lot of marketing for an average cigar, but then again, that might be why he is rich and i am not. I’m glad there are so many cigars out there to suit everyone’s different tastes. Great review, reinforced my thoughts of leaving it in the humidor at the B&M

    Drew makes no cigar I would ever smoke. I hate stupid names and large ring sizes. However, I’m 55 years old and I’m sure his cigars are aimed at the 18-25 year old single male demographic. Who else would buy a cigar with such an idiotic name?

    Well BillK, I’m afraid you’re missing out. Some of the best smokes out are by Drew Estate right now, and they don’t have silly names. Example: Liga Privada No. 9, Liga Privada T-52, Liga Privada Undercrown, etc…. All great smokes. I will agree slightyl with your demographic comment, however I feel it’s more geared to 25-35. Jonathan Drew is a young guy. Don’t give him hell for attempting to be innovative. I would be willing to bet a jar of nickels that if I tore the band off the My Uzi Weighs A Ton and let you blind taste it, you would actually enjoy it. I’m not a fan of big ring smokes either, however there are advantages. In a nutshell, closed minded smokers = boring smokers. Thanks for reading BillK.

    I guess my post was a little harsh. I did mean to point out that his cigars were aimed at a demographic other than mine. I hope it works out for him. The more cigar smokers the better and I suppose the industry needs to attract younger smokers if they are going to survive.

    Nice review!
    MUWT is probably my favorite JD cigar. It does start off a little off, but gets real nice once you get into it some.

    Thanks for the feedback Shawn. I appreciate you stopping by and supporting the site. Just read your Kristoff Sumatra review, and I really enjoyed it. Keep it up buddy!

    Fellas,

    First and foremost, I just want to wish each of you the happiest holiday. I pray that each of you and your loved ones are in good health and a good state of mind as we finish up 2011 and head into 2012 – “A New Beginning” to many people.

    Today I am sitting in my couch in Miami, laptop and Bookers Bourbon in front of me. This is the first Xmas in over 8 years that I will be in the USA, and I treasure the moment. We are so fortunate to live in this beautiful country, where people have the right to express themselves and be the kind of person that they choose to, without someone telling us/them what to do and what to say and how to say it.

    Recently, I read a post on a Solid Blog, that had to do with the “distatseful” names of certain cigars that are offered on the market. While the post was NOT geared toward Drew Estate directly or indirectly, we were certainly part of it. The author made a few interesting points and the post was very well written, respectful, and useful to think about.

    It has been a week now since I read the post and have thought about it a lot. Let me begin by saying that it is our intention to be part of the PREMIUM CIGAR COMMUNITY at all times and RESPECT EVERYONE, ALL OF THE TIME …! DE is simply a handful of cigar lovers who have dedicated their lives to the industry.

    There are a few additional comments that I would like to make about Drew Estate:

    1. DE markets is premium cigars in the $4-$12 MSRP price range for the most part;
    2. DE uses ONLY Natural Wrapped, spiral bound Capa on its cigars currently;
    3. ALL DE Cigars are made ENTIRELY by HAND. We do not use any machines at all .. not Lieberman Bunching Machines, Draw Testing Machines, or the kind of Machines used for “Machine Made Cigars” (Domestics);
    4. We market our cigars to Adults only, 25 -70 years old, and even to guys like my father, an Antique Dealer who is almost 80 years old;
    5. We deeply appreciate the Culture of Premium Cigars and plan to continue to innovate within the industry for many years; AND
    6. We love and respect each one of you who appreciates this time honored, respectable hobby and passion called PREMIUM CIGARS.

    Sincerely,
    Jonathan Drew

    Got 3 of these bad boys resting in the coolidor. Going to break one out soon. For those who think that these are non-complex/average smokes, my usual weekend smoke is the Siglo VI and I love the LP Undercrown.

    IMO the most overblown boutique smoke out there are Tatuaje.

    I’m certainly enjoying the muwat. Your review about the taste is dead on. Thanks to the drew estates for their fine products. The tabak robusto negra is one of my faves. I also like the name muwat. It cracks me up. Good smoke and a good review.

    Smoking one of these now. Good Flavor, but the construction could definitely be better. I tried an Undercrown as well, and it was rolled like a drinking straw. Great flavor profile, but jeez guys, for 10 bucks a stick, can we get a bit more quality control or training? I had a 48 count box of LP9’s that drove me crazy with construction issues. I was reluctant to get these two samples due to the LP9 experience. Looks like construction hasn’t gotten any better, with the same tunnelling issues. For some of the best tasting cigars in production, let’s make them a little less stressful and cost efficient.

    I saw one these at HOlts the other day and passed. But after reading the comments, especially Mr Drews’ I will definitely pick one up next time I am there

    I was so curious I went to Holts and picked up the LP no#9. The cigar is delicious..

    The foot toasted almost immediately and achieved a perfect light. The draw is perfect. At first a got a blast of sweet creaminess and then some what I think is mocha. Through the nose a little spicy with some coffee flavors.

    Still only in the first 3rd. I’m starting to get some sweet flavors.

    Maybe more later if I take some notes.

    So far a great smoke!

    In spite of the angular burn, the ash is a light grey and pretty sturdy. It’s almost an inch now. The finish is on the long side with hints of nuts..

    OK, that’s enough.

    I’m 6 years older than Bill K and I love Drew Estate’s cigars (the non-flavored ones at least). But then I also listen to music that was made in the last quarter century.
