On a first come, first served basis, members of DROP have been invited to acquire a new cigar today called the *A World Gone Mad. Crafted at Tabacalera La iSLA in the Dominican Republic, the latest DROP is limited to only 150 bundles of 10 each. Short Robusto may be my favorite size to keep on hand, so I have a special appreciation for the smaller format that DROP has become so well versed in. This new release is 4.5 x 48 and features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Dominican binder, and Dominican & Nicaraguan fillers,
While DROP also shared an image of the packaging on their IG, this release does not appear to the general public on the shop and as of now can only be accessed directly by those who have already been invited to do so. The notes provided in this morning’s dispatch include floral, white pepper, cream, butterscotch, malt, barnyard, and leather. It is worth noting that the DROP team also shared that “the sweetness is really unique on this blend and we are really excited to see how it progresses down the road, given the body the blend has.” They almost never go out of their way to provide additional information beyond the blend info, so it is especially evident that they consider this to be a very special project.
Have you tried a DROP release before? A cigar from Tabacalera La iSLA? Are you also a fan of Warped by Kyle Gellis? I’d love to hear all about it in the comments below!
