Blackened M81 Toro Cigars by Drew Estate are a landmark achievement. The completed vision of two longtime friends and lifelong aficionados. That vision belonged to James Hetfield, lead singer of Metallica, and Rob Dietrich, the master distiller behind BLACKENED American Whiskey.
These two smokers came up with a brilliant, innovative stick that begged to be made a reality. With the help of Jonathan Drew, they were able to bring their blend to market. A blend that is pure Maduro through and through.
That’s no exaggeration. Every single leaf in the Blackened M81 Toro is a Maduro. Starting with an adventurous mix of Nicaraguan and Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro tobacco for its filler. Capped with a daring Connecticut River Valley Broadleaf Maduro binder. Finally, it’s all wrapped in a delightful Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper.
Sparking it up releases the bold and tantalizing taste of espresso, leather, and dark chocolate. At six inches and a fifty two ring gauge, this Toro provides an intrepid fifty minute smoke.
