Just before Christmas, Jonathan Drew posted on his Facebook and Instagram accounts about his newest boutique project that went live immediately, exclusive to Cigars International called the Smoking Monk by Drew Estate.
“These handmades are specially blended to pair with specific styles of craft beer – so that the cigar enhances the flavor notes in the beer and vice versa.” – Jonathan Drew

Triple Belgian – Spicy, complex, and brimming with flavors of earth, fruit, and pepper backed by a warm, rich aroma. Medium to full.
“SMOKING MONK by Drew Estate” is a boutique project that went live tonight, exclusively for Cigars International. These Handmades are specially blended to pair with specific styles of craft beer – so that the cigar enhances the flavor notes in the beer and vice versa. Those of you who have drank with JD, know that I often enjoy a craft beer while I’m drinking a rye or bourbon. The flavors become super pronounced and outright bangin … The Smoking Monk has that same dualocity effect, even if I just made the damn word up … Hefewiezen – Mild-bodied with creamy notes of vanilla and a sweet finish. Imperial Stout – Hearty, medium to full-bodied blend with nuances of cacao and sweetened dark roast coffee. American IPA – Medium-bodied with a zesty flavor profile of citrus, spice, and slight smoky finish. Porter – Well-balanced, medium-bodied blend filled with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Triple Belgian – Medium to full-bodied with a rich, complex tobacco flavor and a spicy finish. #de4L #letsdoittogetherjd
