From DrewEstate.com, “Skillfully manufactured at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate, alongside the same buncheros and rolleros who create premium cigars, Factory Smokes by Drew Estate are economically priced due to their bulk manufacturing and less expensive bundle packaging. A handmade value priced line of cigars perfect for sharing with your friends on a Monday, mowing the lawn, washing the car, you know, smoke it, enjoy it, toss it if you must, then grab another.
From the Wynwood Safehouse, Jonathan Drew, Founder & President of Drew Estate, ‘Our expansion in the bundle business was a decision we did not take lightly. Bundles aren’t glamorous and the efficiency required to produce them effectively is not easily reached, which is why there aren’t a ton of entrants innovating in the value priced space. This is long overdue for Drew Estate, and when we reached the production scale required to compete we knew we wanted to do what we do, and disrupt the space with an innovative, deep value line of quality smokes for a broad set of thrifty individuals.'”
Drew Estate Factory Smokes Shade Gordito (6×60)
$3.09 – $69.44
Drew Estate’s Factory Smokes are a home run for cigar lovers everywhere! These cuban sandwiches offer construction, flavor, and consistancy of a more expensive blend. Nonetheless, you’ll get them at rock bottom prices when you buy a bundle today. The word around the Cigars Daily Lounge is that these sticks are far tastier than they are costly…er.
This Connecticut Shade blend has surprisingly brilliant flavor for a bargain stick. The silky golden brown wrapper leaf on these cigars holds vibrant flavors of cedar and earth with a light sweetness. For the mild cigar lover, these are a no brainer.

Great cigar for golfing or other activity. A lighter cigar, not a ton of flavor but is consistent throughout. Overall, it’s worth the price you pay.

Had to try it after one of Tim’s videos. I gotta say, it is a skip. Taste is nothing memorable, draw is easy but the cigar is built loos. I only got 2, both I had to put out by the last third. Both was coming apart.
It is cheap at $3, but you are much better off saving a few more bucks and buying something else.

I was disappointed with the Shade. Not a lot of flavor, like smoking notebook paper. I will stick with the Sweets of the Maduro.
