Commemorating Allan Blatt, founder of retailer Best Cigar Prices, Drew Estate has announced the ACID Ode to Blatt cigar, which will be sold exclusively through BestCigarPrices.com and the retailer’s brick-and-mortar location in Drums, PA.

Drew Estate founder and president, Jonathan Drew, began his journey in the premium cigar industry the same year as Allan in 1996. At the time, Allan was selling cigars out of the trunk of his car, eventually introducing Best Cigar Prices’ popular online storefront and catalogue. Allan unfortunately passed in 2006, though his vision lives on today with one of the biggest cigar retail operations in the country.

Jonathan Drew fondly remembers his close friendship with Allan Blatt, which began when they both started in the premium cigar business in 1996. As Jonathan explains, “While he has been gone nearly 20 years, Allan continues to have a profound influence on my life. Witnessing his legacy live on is a tremendous personal honor, and I’m looking forward to raising a glass and some divine smoke to my dear friend on August 5th during our event at BCP’s onsite location.”

In his honor, the two companies have collaborated on the ACID Ode to Blatt cigar, featuring an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper and “aromatic spice and herbal notes with a creamy floral finish.” The cigars are rolled in Nicaragua at Drew Estate’s La Gran Fabrica factory, being offered in a singular 5″ x 54 robusto format.

Best Cigar Prices President and CEO, Greg Fox adds, “This is a big day for our company. To partner with Drew Estate on this project is very meaningful, especially because of Allan’s friendship with Jonathan Drew. I started with the company when Allan hired me 20 years ago, and I know that he would be so happy to see this tribute if he were with us today. I can’t thank Jonathan and the entire Drew Estate team enough for making this a reality and honoring the man who started it all for us, and for choosing such a terrific cigar to do it.”

The ACID Ode to Blatt cigar is available today through BestCigarPrices.com, packaged in boxes of 20 cigars and currently discounted to $178.99 per box / $8.95 per cigar ($219.00 per box / $10.95 per cigar MSRP). The two companies will come together for a celebratory in-store event on August 5th.
