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, Undercrown was born.
Undercrown is graced with a dark brown Mexican Maduro wrapper. Cultivated from the fertile farmlands of the San Andrés Valley, this leaf lends some savory spices to the mix, making its presence known from the get-go. The blend develops nicely with flavors of cocoa, espresso roast, and creamy hints of cashews. Undercrown's ultimately medium to full in body, bursting with classic Maduro characteristics and some new-school Nicaraguan nuances, as well. Expect a slow, cool, even burn before a smoother-than-expected finish. Despite its foreboding look and feel, Undercrown is an ideal option for any cigar enthusiast.
