My Uzi Weighs A Ton – Bait Fish (first impressions)

MUWAT Bait Fish

Yesterday, the temperatures rose enough and the clouds cleared up enough for me to head outside to enjoy a rare nice day in February. Not knowing how long the decent weather would hold out, I reached into my office humidor for something guaranteed to be a decent quick smoke. Out came the My Uzi Weighs A Ton (MUWAT) Bait Fish, a collaboration between Drew Estate’s Subculture Studios and Joya de Nicaragua (JDN).

Brian reviewed the original MUWAT back in 2011. To be honest, I wasn’t much impressed by the initial release. I tend to steer away from the large ring gauges, and the flavor profile to me seemed a bit… muddled. However, the mad geniuses at Subculture Studios and JDN actually tweaked the MUWAT blend a bit for Bait Fish, aiming for something a bit stronger and more distinct. With that in mind, coupled with the new petit corona format and the fact that Jerry really seems to like it, I knew I was in for something good.

Between the demands of work and family, plus the always unpredictable weather, I often don’t have time to smoke large cigars. I hate getting a couple of inches into a Churchill, for example, only to have to pitch it when something comes up. I like to keep a nice selection of “quick smokes” on hand for when I can’t commit an hour or more to smoking, and I will definitely be adding Bait Fish to that rotation. This tweaked blend was definitely a bit stronger than the original MUWAT, without being too strong or overpowering by any measure. The flavors also seemed to come through a bit more distinctly, and the construction left nothing to be desired. Originally an exclusive vitola for New Havana Cigars, Bait Fish is now available at retailers nationwide.

Charlie has been enjoying cigars since 2000 and generally prefers a medium-bodied, full-flavored smoke. A USAF vet, he currently works as a data scientist focusing on natural language processing and is pursuing a PhD in computer science in his spare time. Originally from Connecticut and now residing in Northern Virginia, Charlie is also a fan of football, science fiction, political philosophy, and single malt scotch.

  1. Great review! I like anything Drew Estate does as long as it’s not infused with any crap. I will definitely have to try these based on your review. Hey I also really like your music choice this time. Keep up the good work.
