Meant to be savored and enjoyed slowly, our six-inch Barrel-Fermented Toro cigar—toros are also called corona gordas or ‘fat coronas’—features a robust ring gauge of fifty two, which makes for a fuller, more flavorful smoke. The sophisticated blend starts with bundles of Kentucky fire-cured tobacco that are soaked in Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels during a 12-18 month fermentation process before they’re combined with the finest Mexican and Indonesian tobacco and hand-rolled by the exceptional artisans at Drew Estate in Estelí, Nicaragua. The result is a one-of-a-kind cigar unlike anything else on the market—a bourbon-tinged blend that pairs well with spicier spirits such as rye. The strength level of the Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented Cigar is "Medium Plus," which allows both new smokers and experienced aficionados to enjoy the blend.
The passion project of two college buddies from New York (Jonathan Drew and Marvin Samel), Drew Estates, based in Esteli, Nicaragua, is the result of decades of hardwork and a commitment to rolling some of the finest cigars you can find. They’re also deeply committed to supporting the people who work for them, creating an inspiring art-filled workspace and providing both healthcare and reliable transportation.

How quickly your cigars will dry out depends on the humidity in the air. More humid climates are better for cigars. In general, you should store cigars in a humidor or airtight bag as soon as your shipment arrives. Due to inconsistent shipping climates, it is important to give your cigars a few days to rehydrate before enjoying one. If you don't have a humidor we suggest putting the cigars in a plastic food storage bag or container. For every 25 cigars stored, put a damp sponge or paper towel in the bag or container. Store the bag on a shelf or in a closet. If you don't have a humidor, we suggest purchasing one of our Boveda humidor bags or one of our 2-way humidity control packs designed to keep your cigars at the ideal humidity. They are available for purchase on our website. Please note: Our cigars arrive sealed and shrink-wrapped in cellophane. We are unable to accept returns on opened boxes.
