In the realm of cigars, there’s a brand that stands distinct from the rest — ACID. With its unorthodox approach to traditional cigar making, ACID infused cigars have created a niche, garnering a devout following and inciting curiosity in many. This article offers a glimpse into the world of ACID cigars, their unique offerings, and answers the most frequently asked questions about this one-of-a-kind brand.
The Brand is Truly Unique:
ACID cigars are a product of Drew Estate, a cigar company renowned for its innovative flair. What sets ACID apart is its infusion process, where essential oils, botanicals, and herbs are used to grant the tobacco a unique flavor and aroma. Each cigar, therefore, becomes an experience, a journey of flavors beyond the ordinary.
Stigmas Around Flavored Cigars:
Before we go any further, it should be noted that there is plenty of stigma and misinformation around “flavored cigars” in the industry today, especially in the machismo and macho circles of cigar smokers. We cover this in our misinformation and stigmas of flavored cigars post that you might want to read before you send us hate mail.
Drew Estate, the parent brand of ACID Cigars, also makes a wildly popular “natural” cigars. Most notably, the Liga Privada H99, Undercrown 10, and Nica Rustica lines. So, while the flavored lines are typically associated with ACID Cigars, Drew Estate is well known for making high quality, premium non-flavored cigars as well. Anyone who tells you that ACID Cigars are made with inferior tobacco and the infused flavors are there to hide the inferior quality cigar does not know what he/she is talking about. The beauty of ACID Cigars is that they infuse flavors with high quality tobacco. However, when it comes to flavored cigars that are machine made, the stigma that the flavoring is there to hide the inferior tobacco is probably true.
