Hoyo de Monterrey is one of the oldest cigar brands in the world, making its start in Cuba before expanding production to their factory in Honduras. With deep roots in Cuba, this brand has consistently been one of the best cigars to ever come off the island. In 1969, after the trade embargo, production moved to Honduras and was first harvested from a Cuban seed smuggled out of Cuba in a diplomatic pouch.
The unique multi-country blend used to make Hoyo de Monterrey is full-bodied, with a solid creamy flavor and great balance. The cigar is currently made under the supervision of Estello Padron at the Villazon Factory where other big names such as Punch are made today. Estello's commitment to quality and perfection ensures that each Hoyo de Monterrey is worthy of the name. Hoyo de Monterrey is and always has been a classic. Smoked by new enthusiasts and aficionados alike, it has a versatile flavor that appeals to many palates.
Not only have the folks at Drew Estate won the world over with their countless infused blends, but they amazed everyone with their traditional Liga Privada No. 9. Not to rest on their laurels, they have since come out with a handful of small batch, traditional lines that are well worth the attention.
Undercrown was created at the rolling tables by Drew Estate's rollers - not in a board room or meeting. The story goes as such: Drew Estate allows their rollers to smoke any of the cigars in production, and the rollers loved the original Liga Privada No. 9 blend so much that it was all they ever smoked. While most would consider that a ringing endorsement, Drew Estate was worried about the availability of the tobaccos. The primings used for the No. 9 are so rare and limited that they had to remove Liga Privada No. 9 from the list of cigars the rollers are allowed to smoke. The rollers then improvised and used different primings of the same tobacco to make a new blend they could enjoy in the factory every day. This new blend impressed the Drew Estate team so much that they rolled it out to the market, and thus, Liga Privada Undercrown was born.
Differing from the No. 9 wrapper, Undercrown is graced with a dark brown San Andres maduro wrapper. The San Andres wrapper adds some spice to the blend and makes its presence known in the onset of the cigar. The blend develops nicely with flavors of espresso and hints of cashews. Undercrown comes off as a medium-bodied cigar that expels a lot flavor with a cool, perfectly even burn. Expect a medium finish as this blend is perfect for every cigar enthusiast.
