Drew Estate is set to bring back the ACID Croqueta blend (Purple Label), which is now packaged in a unique presentation that the company dubs, “One for Now, One for Later.”
Essentially, Drew Estate has made two cigars—each half the size of a traditional robusto (2½” x 50)—and stacked them inside a clear, robusto-sized tubo; ergo, one for now, one for later.
ACID Croqueta will first become available to attendees of the upcoming Tobacconists Association of America (TAA) trade show, taking place from March 17–21 in Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic.
This release marks the first in an anticipated year of special ACID releases from Drew Estate in 2019, as the company will be celebrating the ACID brand’s monumental 20th anniversary. ACID Croqueta Tubo features a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper and all-Nicaraguan binder/fillers, with pricing set at $8.40 per tubo. Bundles of 25 tubos are slated to begin shipping to retailers in mid-April.
