Our premium Tradition collection, which includes three distinct vitolas, is a collaboration between Pappy & Company and the master blenders and rollers at Drew Estate in Estelí, Nicaragua, featuring a blend chosen by our father to reflect the values of our family’s famed Old Rip Van Winkle bourbons—quality, craftsmanship, and a commitment to excellence without shortcuts. With an oily Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper, an Indonesian binder, and a blend of aged Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers, this classic cigar collection delivers a fragrant, full-bodied smoke with top notes of chocolate, earth, and leather. Hints of raw cocoa, cashews, and sweet tobacco create balance and depth. Our Robusto vitola is the collection’s shortest offering and can easily be enjoyed in under an hour, but a ring gauge of fifty two ensures a smoke that’s just as flavorful and complex.
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.
Our cigars arrive sealed and shrink wrapped in cellophane. We are unable to accept returns on opened boxes.
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 within a few days of receiving your cigars. 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.
