During the Cigar Federation Cigar Safari with Drew Estate, Jonathan Drew announced a new cigar project All Out Kings. Blending will be done collaboratively by Willy Herrera, Master Blender for Drew Estate, and Robert Caldwell of Caldwell Cigar Company. The cigars for All Out Kings will be rolled at Joya de Nicaragua, and distributed by Caldwell Cigar Company.
The project has been underway for over a year. This venture represents the first collaboration for Willy Herrera since joining Drew Estate.
Jonathan Drew was quoted as saying:
This is really emblematic of what we stand for as a company; why we started the company. It makes me really happy to know that our culture and core at Drew Estate is to stay raw keep things still local and on the gut check.
Robert Caldwell was quoted as saying:
For Caldwell it’s a very exciting venture to work with basically the trailblazer of the boutique industry. If it weren’t for Jonathan and what he’s done, companies like ours wouldn’t exist today.
Willy Herrera was quoted as saying:
I’m excited to get my style of blending, my style of what I like to smoke, and blend that together with what Robert likes to smoke and see what we come up with.
Details on the blends, vitolas, and MSRP are to be determined.
