Reviving Tradition: The Return of Chateau Real by Drew Estate
Chateau Real is making a triumphant return, as Drew Estate announces the revival of this classic brand, now exclusively available through online retailers. Initially introduced in 2006, Chateau Real represented one of Drew Estate’s early ventures into the realm of non-infused cigars. Although it was eventually discontinued, making way for popular brands like Herrera Estelí and Undercrown, the resurgence of Chateau Real brings a nostalgic touch to the present.
This revived line boasts a blend crafted with precision, featuring a Connecticut shade wrapper elegantly enveloping a Nicaraguan binder and a rich combination of Nicaraguan fillers. Chateau Real returns to the market with three distinct sizes, each promising aficionados a delightful smoking experience:
- Chateau Real Churchill (7 x 50): Priced at $7 per cigar or $139.95 per box of 20.
- Chateau Real Toro (6 x 50): Available at $6.75 per cigar or $134.95 per box of 20.
- Chateau Real Robusto (5 x 50): Priced at $6.50 per cigar or $129.95 per box of 20.
Jonathan Drew, president and co-founder of Drew Estate, expressed his enthusiasm about the revival, stating, “Chateau, along with all of its secrets, has since become one of the most sought-after ‘Drew Estate Ghosts,’ with collectors keeping the brand and its folklore alive.” Drew emphasized the brand’s allure and the decision to resurrect it, adding, “I’m absolutely thrilled that we are bringing affordable brands to market… good shit that everyone can afford and feel intelligent purchasing.”
While the Chateau Real Maduro had been part of Drew Estate’s portfolio in the past, the Maduro version remains discontinued for now. The return of Chateau Real marks a significant moment for enthusiasts, allowing them to rediscover the brand’s legacy and enjoy its exceptional blends once again.
