Drew Estate Acid Kuba Deluxe Cigar Review

This 6×50 tubed cigar features a dark brown firm satin finished wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a large double cap and potent sweet potpourri Christmas like aroma typical of the Acid line. First light reveals a perfect draw with copious amounts of smoke output. Flavors are undetectable through the hugely sweetened tip, that should wear off in 10 minutes or so. The first third burns very well diminishing the sweetness and body to mild-medium with smooth smoke although no actual cigar flavors come through quite yet. Hitting the 1/2 way point 30 minutes in the actual cigar flavors come out at a medium-full body giving the same Christmas spicy sweet flavors under a white pepper and zesty earth core that lasts through the long finish. Ending at 1:05 where it got too warm for my taste, the last third was consistent. Thank you very much to viewer Mike for sending this one in! You can subscribe to the Drew Estate channel HERE.

    Joined their youtube channel. A quick look at titles looked like they have some interesting videos to watch. The Kuba Deluxe sounds like a good cigar. I had a Drew Estate sampler tin and all my friends grabbed them up. I got to have the Blondie which was decent.

    Do you keep your flavored cigars in a separate Coolerdore?

      I don’t have many at all and just keep them in a separate big ziplock. Definitely not mixed in though!

    I’m not a huge infused cigar fan but the kuba is a good smoke to change things up. Thanks for the info on there YouTube channel

    I’ve had the kuba only twice, not for me. It was like potpourri dust.

    I definitely prefer the natural tobacco taste of a cigar. However, I’m not opposed to a good infused cigar every now and then when the mood strikes.

    I’ve tried several of their “flowery” type cigars, definitely not for me. However I did enjoy the Java Maduro quite a bit. A little pricey but good change of pace every once in a while.

    Kuba Kuba, no 1 selling Drew Estate cigar and close to no 1 in the US. Not for everyone, but kudos to them for being the top dog in this category.

    Woohoo! Frankenmuth! Detroit! Hehe. Had to give the shout out. 3 years removed from living sub-Detroit Metro/ Downriver area, and while I love being in Kansas, there are some things I miss, and the Christmas spread – decorations, shopping, food – is definitely one of them.

    How much of a difference is there between the Deluxe and the regular Kuba Kuba?

    • Bigdave

      Same I think. Just different size and in a tube.

    After smoking some Kuba Kubas for a while I start to get a taste of Nutra Sweet/Sweet&Low artificial sweeting. Has anyone else caught on to this?
