The 10th cigar in Smoke Inn’s fan-favorite Microblend Series is returning soon, with Smoke Inn Cigars and Drew Estate re-releasing The Pope of Greenwich Village project on May 27th.

The Pope of Greenwich Village first launched in 2015, being rolled in a unique 6″ x 40 “short lancero” format. The cigars were a limited release, making use of a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Connecticut stalk-cut Habano binder, and fillers of Nicaragua and Brazilian Mata Fina.

Working with Jonathan Drew and the folks at Drew Estate back in 2015 to create the Pope Of Greenwich Village was a milestone in Smoke Inn’s history,” says Dababneh. “It has been a fan favorite. I am elated to see this Smoke Inn Micro Blend return for the public to enjoy!Abe Dababneh, owner of Smoke Inn Cigars

Pricing has understandably increased in the six years since the original release, moving from $8.50 to $10 per cigar ($99.95/10-count pack), though the blend and format remain identical to the original.

Pope of Greenwich Village was set in an Italian neighborhood in New York and brings us back to our NYC roots in a such a clever way. Like the movie, Pope is a character study that’s bold and unusual, as the flavor characteristics are enhanced by the smaller ring gauge. The Pope of Greenwich Village is a concept cigar which reminds us that the cigar business is not just business, it’s also a lot of fun.Jonathan Drew, Drew Estate’s founder and president

Exact quantities haven’t been divulged for this release, though the cigars are scheduled to debut during a virtual event hosted by Dababneh and Drew Estate on May 27th at 7pm (Eastern). As with the original, the cigars will be made available exclusively through retailer Smoke Inn Cigars.
