Cigar Review | Drew Estate Java

This cigar review features the Drew Estate Java cigar. The Java is an infused cigar with flavors of coffee. It isn’t exactly what I expected. These cigars are Nicaraguan and were created by Jonathan Drew of Drew Estate and Rocky Patel. This is something I didn’t know at the time of the review. They don’t appear on the Drew Estate website and do appear on the Rocky Patel website.

Make sure you store this in a separate box!

Drew Estate Java

Dimensions, Zest & Flavours

There are flavors of dark cocoa, java and coffee. There is absolutely no sweetness once the cigar is puffed for a few minutes. I expected the body of the cigar to be full-bodied and it was barely medium.

Draw, Smoke Output & Finish

The draw was light and the cigar produced a lot of smoke. The finish was much shorter tahn expected and left a dry feel in the mouth.

Strength, Vim & Vigor

This is a mild cigar that would be good for a beginner. It tries to be well-constructed enough and flavorful for a more seasoned smoker. I just didn’t feel it did a more eperienced cigar smoker any justice.

Time of Smoke & Value

The cigar smoked for 90 minutes.

Final Thoughts

It would be interesting if it had more sweetness and would probably pair well with coffee. I admit I smoked it with some water. Probably a mistake. I didn’t fully enjoy this cigar. I don’t think it was bad as it was constructed well and didn’t need any relight or touch ups. I may have expected it to be a flavor bomb and it wasn’t.
