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 Toro (6×52)
$2.55 – $57.29
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.

These are very good for the money. Had just a hint of sweetness to start on a few of them. Otherwise a basic smoke but so far they’ve all burned well and produced great smoke. Found my daily smoke with these!
Received a in a sample pack and love them. These are very well constructed and have great flavor from beginning to end. The burn was a little uneven, but nothing to complain about really. I have been looking for a lower cost daily smoke and this is it. Definitely going to order a bundle for the humidor.

First of all, their description here is not correct. They don’t have an excellent construction. The draw is super easy, because they are loose rolled. It’s a Cuban sandwich. They burn really fast, but more even and the ash looks much better than my Cohibas. I am smoking the Toro right now and the ash is 1.5in long, Light gray and perfectly burned. Taste is really mild. You taste the Connecticut wrapper. Quality is acceptable but the price is unbelievable. I have ordered 100 four months ago and this one i am Smoking now is my last cigar. I smoke every day one cigar.
One day of the week I smoke a Herrera Esteli Miami and the Herrera costs more than the six factory smoke cigars together, but that’s a treat.
This cigar doesn’t produce much smoke at all, that’s very surprising.
You almost just taste the wrapper.
Considering this fantastic price I have ordered 100 more
Not very pleasant, burned unevenly the whole time,it has kind of a bitter taste, for a two dollar price it’s exactly what it is
This was my first bundle purchase cigar I made. They have been a consistent smoke every time I tried them.
Good, mostly even burn and holds the ash pretty well. It’s an excellent, standard smoke. There’s nothing flashy about it. Has a great, light taste with a hint of sweetness on the back end. I have found these to be very dependable.
