Drew Estate has just announced a new exclusive cigar – ACID Ode to Blatt– created in memory of the late Allan Blatt. The founder of BestCigarPrices.com, Blatt actually started out in 1996 by selling cigars out of the trunk of his car. Not long after, he started the website and sent out the fledgling operation’s first catalog. Today, what began in a trunk now offers upwards of almost 10,000 products from more than 900 different brands. In addition, there is now a BCP restaurant, cigar bar, and museum located in Drums, Pennsylvania.
“While he has been gone nearly 20 years, Allan continues to have a profound influence on my life. Witnessing his legacy live on is a tremendous personal honor, and I’m looking forward to raising a glass and some divine smoke to my dear friend on August 5th during our event at BCP’s onsite location,” shares Jonathan Drew, Founder and President of Drew Estate, who started in he industry at the same time. A tribute to Drew’s longtime friend, the 5 x 54 Ode To Blatt is an aromatic cigar with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. Available in boxes of 20, the newest ACID offering is crafted at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Estelí, Nicaragua,
Best Cigar Prices President and CEO, Greg Fox adds, “This is a big day for our company. To partner with Drew Estate on this project is very meaningful, especially because of Allan’s friendship with Jonathan Drew. I started with the company when Allan hired me 20 years ago, and I know that he would be so happy to see this tribute if he were with us today. I can’t thank Jonathan and the entire Drew Estate team enough for making this a reality and honoring the man who started it all for us, and for choosing such a terrific cigar to do it.”
The Ode To Blatt is a Best Cigar Prices exclusive and is available now. Regular production ACID cigars from Drew Estate are available from Privada Cigar Club.
