The KFC Chunky is a delicious cigar in the medium to medium/full range. It is rolled by the skilled torcedors at the Drew Estate factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. Very little is known about the blend excpet that it features fire cured tobaccos from Kentucky and Virginia. When smoking this exquisite cigar you will experience the smokey flavor as in a peaty Scotch but also you will pick up notes of roasted hickory, oak or maple wood. The Chunky checks in at 4" with a 46 ring guage and comes in bundles of 10.
In late 1998 Jonathan Drew moved from his New York City apartment to Esteli, Nicaragua. He went with a small band of rollers and big dreams. He planned on leading the rebirth of the cigar industry. While he did that his partner, Marvin, was keeping the company together in a rundown office in Brooklyn. What they accomplished together from that time has been truely amazing and is a testament to their will. Kentucky Fire Cured is the most recent offering from Drew Estate in the traditional cigar market. Smoking these cigars with the fire cured tobacco is really an experience you should try.
