Drew Estate Undercrown

A high-end cigar for the working man.

Normally known for their infused cigars, Drew Estate’s made a huge splash with their traditional Liga Privada #9. A favorite amongst the factory’s rollers, Drew Estate had to tell the rollers to stop smoking the blend because of the high demand of the cigar. So the working man had to adapt…

And adapt they did. Created by the rollers of the Drew Estate factory, Undercrown uses tobaccos similar to the Liga Privada #9 but that are more readily available. While the Liga Privada #9 is full flavored treat, the Undercrown is a little lighter on the palate. Wrapped in a dark San Andres maduro wrapper, the Undercrown starts with notes of coffee with a slight hint of spice that becomes more prominent as the smoke progresses. Even as it progresses, the cigar still manages to round out as a medium to full-bodied treat.

Customer Reviews of “Drew Estate Undercrown”
“Since I have been unable to try the Liga Privada #9, I Been eying these, so decided to pay an inflated 11 bucks for one at a local shop, I have to say the torpedo I had was extremely good, very well made, I knew I was in for something pretty good, just from the pre light draw, I was right, deep earth and full body, cocoa and licorice flavors, a hint of black pepper, but not over board pepper, but full body for sure, The finish is long on this as well, with the earthy cocoa lingering, I nursed this thing for over 60 minutes, ash held for 3 inches, before I flipped them off, A five pack for 40 bucks seems very reasonable to me.”
JS of Moraine, OH
“I have had all three in the Liga line & like them all, but for the money you can't beat the Undercrown ! It is one of the few cigars I did not have to get very far into it to know this is a keeper. Loads of flavor & flawless contruction made me pull the trigger on a full box ! And that does not happen often Gents !!!”
CC of Sharps Chapel, TN
“As some have said, and as simple as I can put it... Liga Privada UNDERCROWN, is NOT the same as a real Liga Privada. Not bad, but nowhere near the same experience for almost the same price.”
JH of San Diego, CA
“This is a tasty smoke,but a more scaled down version of the LP# 9.That being said,the construction is perfect,the burn is straight and very slow with a nice aroma.I got a 5-pack of the robusto (5×54)and it was a 90-minute smoke.I gave it a day in the humidor and could not wait any longer.I also noticed that this cigar has a" quiet strength"that sneaks up on you around the last 1/3 that is cloaked by the mild-medium complex flavor.I'm exited to see what some aging will do to these Undercrowns.Congrats J. Drew and your whole organization thanks CI!”
RK of College Park, MD
“Definitely one of my favorites. Affordable and delicious. The under crown is really a unique experience. Starts off slightly sweet with a subtle spicy undertone, which gets more and more prominent as you go on. My coworkers that usually hate the smell of my cigar smoke say that it actually smells quite pleasant. Loads of smoke both off of the foot and the draw. It starts off medium and ends medium full. I love this cigar and I can't get enough of it. I am now on my third box and don't plan to stop anytime soon.”
BN of Honolulu, HI
“I tried my first Undercrowns and I was quite impressed. The draw and burn were perfect and the taste was very pleasing. My favorite was the Gran Toro. I found these to be well worth the price.”
JW of Coarsegold, CA
“This is NOT a No.9 or T52 experience. Well built, burns great, slow burning and extremely smokey, but forgetable for me. I plan on giving it another try, but I think between the difficulty of finding Ligas(which are awesome) and the hype behind the undercrown, I was expecting more.”
GB of Birmingham, AL
“Smoking the gran toro as I write. Given a bit of aging, this cigar is very pleasant. Flavors are there but not overpowering. Flavor disappears quickly. Produces a ton of smoke! Draw was just right. Aroma was cedar/charcoal,with slight sweet nuttiness. Did not leave a harsh or bad aftertaste. No pepper noticed. Would buy again. Easy smoke for breakfast!”
CS of Grey Eagle, MN
“Had my first Undercrown today and I must say it was fantastic. Great smoke to the end and held the ash very well. I can see this one making my top ten.”
CB of Mcpherson, KS
“Never was a Drew Estates guy..... I know alot of people who are Drew Estates diehards, for the longest time I scoffed at them. Finally I was gifted a Gran Toro Undercrown. I was surprisingly impressed. Licorice, leather, dark chocolate, earthy, far more than I was expecting. Gives off a wonderful amount of smoke with a solid grey-white ash. Not ashamed to say I keep at least a box on hand at all times. My favorite go-to smoke.”
NH of TOLEDO, OH
“I had one of these sticks last night, It was fantastic. It has a full easy draw that creates a great amount of smoke. The after taste is non intrusive and very nice. After I finished the stick, I was wishing I had another one to continue the relaxing deliciousness. Its a must buy if you haven't tried it yet.”
AU of San Jose, CA
“I smoked my first Undercrown tonight and my first impression was not a good one. As many of the previous reviewers have stated, the cigar is well constructed. I also concur with the comments about the slow burn, smoke and ash, however the flavor just didn't do it for me. I have several more, so I will give it another go. I'm hoping the second time around will yield a different opinion.”
DM of WASHINGTON, DC
“I was surprised to find this to be a very enjoyable cigar. When I smoked it, I enjoyed the earthy, rich flavors, that reminded me of the way a Partagas Black smells when lighting it. I'm usually a bit skeptical when it comes to new cigars, or cigars that receive lots of hype, but this was really good. The price was right, too, since I got five as part of the Cigarfest Sampler special, that included 20 good cigars for about $60. I believe the size I smoked was a Gran Toro.”
SS of WALDORF, MD
“I smoked my first Undercrown this morning. I was driving in my car responding to a crisis situation (beyond the scope of this post), but in spite of the events at hand I couldn't help but notice how fantastic this cigar is! My impression is espresso, espresso, and more espresso! Medium bodied, maybe more toward full at the end, but absolutely savory! This one is definitely on Dad's list now. More please, preferrably with a good cup of coffee!”
CG of St. Petersburg, FL
“I don't really do cigar reviews mostly because I think flavors are very subjective but construction is not....I decided to try one of these (belicoso) and am smoking it (trying to) right now. I cut the cap and the cigar split an inch and a half down one side and two inches down the other. I have never seen anything like it, not from Drew Estate or even on super cheap cigar. I've been thinking about smoking this for two weeks and split. I sure hope the No 9 and T52 don't fall a part like this.”
RD of Akron, OH
“Chose this cigar as a change from my usual preferences..Explore a little bit and found this little diamond at my local cigar shop.. Needless to say, I have not been disappointed with the Undercrown... I would definitely suggest this cigar to anyone looking for a nice smoke, but doesn't want to spend a whole lot and enjoy a medium-full cigar..This is another brand I keep in my small rotation and have yet to be disappointed with it..”
CJ of Irving, TX
“This cigar is PHENOMENAL. My absolute favorite that I have ever smoked and I have smoked about 50-100 different brands. The construction is perfect. The flavors are complex and leathery. I chew on the end of my cigars when I smoke them and the Undercrown holds up well and releases an explosion of flavor when chewed on. If you like medium-full cigars this one will be one of your absolute favorite.”
DT of DAVISON, MI
“Love this stick! Great smoke output, good flavors, medium to full bodied. I have had some burn issues, I can't seem to get the wrappers to burn evenly! Oh well, a couple touch-up's and good to go. Great price, I like the 6x60. Don't hesitate, it's a must try!”
RM of SPRINGFIELD, OR
“A really great cigar. I tried this before the Liga Privada #9 and thought it was so good I could not wait to try its more expensive brother. I finally got ahold of a robusto and several torpedoes of the #9 and was not impressed, I actually think the Undercrown is better and at least as good. The Undercrown has a flavor similar to the La Herencia Cubana Core, which I also like very much, and they are among my favorites now. I also am a great fan of Cain Maduro, Diesel Unholy Cocktail, and La Herencia Oscuro Fuerte.”
WD of MIAMI, FL
“This is a good cigar but not one I would add to my list of cigars I purchase on a regular basics. I would still suggest giving on of these a try, many would really enjoy what this cigar has to offer.”
DM of Hixson, TN
“These Smokes Are Smooth With A Great Draw And A Fantastic Leather/Spice Flavor. They Burn Even And Hold A Good Ash, Both Qualities I Have Come To Expect From Drew Estates. The Robustos Are Definitely One Of My Go To Cigars. For About $7 Each, They're Hard To Beat.”
BB of MOUNT PLEASANT, TX
“The Liga Privada Undercrown has an easy draw, produces nice smoke, and is full of flavor. As for my personal favorite it's a toss up for #1 between the Liga Privada No.9 and the Liga Privada Undercrown. If the No.9 is a bit our of the price point for the day Undercrown is definitely the way to go.”
TG of MUKWONAGO, WI
“Very nice tasting cigar would get it again!”
CJ of cicero, IL
“A wonderful, rich cigar with great draw. This cigar burns slowly and evenly giving me lots of time to enjoy the flavor of leather and chocolate. I know I spent at least an hour and a half enjoying this flavorful treat and I was fully satisfied with this cigar and intend to include these in future purchases.”
