Join Drew Estate for the 4th annual Louisiana Barn Smoker on Saturday October 24th on L.A. Poche Farm. The barrels are full of rich Kentucky seed, Kentucky grown tobacco will be fermenting and you will learn about the rich history of Louisiana tobacco and having a grand time.
The St. James Parish is known throughout the world as the capital of Perique Tobacco. Drew Estate partnered with Mark Ryan, owner of L.A. Poche, to revolutionize the age-old process of Barrel Fermentation but with our Dark Fire Cured Tobacco from Kentucky. This tobacco is highlighted on the Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented cigar which is the main highlight of the event.

Envisioned and inspired by Jonathan Drew to bring aficionados, brands, and local businesses to American Tobacco Farms, Barn Smoker events also serve to raise awareness for Cigars for Warriors, a 501(c)(3) charity, whose sole focus is to support the American military.
