Drew Estate Undercrown Maduro

Description

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 burning 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 notch down in strength. Wrapped in a dark San Andres maduro wrapper, Drew Estate Undercrown starts with notes of coffee with a slight hint of spice that becomes more prominent as the cigar progresses. Even as it progresses, the cigar still manages to round out as a medium to full-bodied treat.

Drew Estate Undercrown received a well-deserved 91-rating, earning a spot in the Top 25 Cigars of 2017. The reviewers noted, "shows a strong oaky, leather character finessed by hints of vanilla and a roasted coffee bean finish."

I’m halfway through the cigar right now and loving every puff of it. Very smooth. Great burn. Very well constructed. I even find myself holding it differently than other cigars. I took a risk and bought 2 boxes when they were on sale, having not smoked an Undercrown before. Now I wish I bought more.

What can I say that hasn’t been mentioned already. This is one of my FAVORITE STICKS!! So smooth, rich, and flavorful. The construction on these cigars I have smoked has been perfect or near perfect. Delicious flavors of chocolate, cedar and coffee for me. I always let them rest for a couple of months in my humi to give them a chance to give the best flavors possible.

A True Classic

Joe

I think Drew Estate’s Undercrown is the cigar I’ve burnt the most of, in my life. Seriously. I’d guess that over the last five years or so I’ve gone through maybe… six boxes of these in total. That’s across almost every size – I’ve gone from Gran Toro, to the Gordito, to the Corona Viva, to the Corona Doble, and back to the Gran Toro over the years. Now six boxes might not seem like a lot for those guys out there who consistently buy the same box month in and month out. But that’s never been me, I’ve always been one to jump around from brand to brand. 

All that being said, Undercrown is a cigar I’ve always returned to, always recommended, and always enjoyed. Today, I want to explain why.

Before we jump into all that, I want to explain the background of the “Undercrown” for those who don’t know. Let’s jump back in time seven or eight years. It’s 2010 — the iPhone 4 was just released, Bing and Yahoo have decided to combine search tech to try to take down Google (spoiler alert: it doesn’t work), Drew Brees is the MVP of the Super Bowl after whipping the Colts, and a little cigar company known for their infused blends is killing the game with a cigar called “Liga Privada No. 9”. Now Liga Privada gets a lot of its success from the high-quality leaves contained inside it — the maduro wrapper is fermented extra-slowly and longer than most, and only the highest-quality filler leaves make their way into the final product. The rarity of the tobacco had a lot to do with the unique flavor, and the reviews were good. In fact, this hype surrounding this cigar was SO good, Drew Estate couldn’t keep up with production. 

So the decision comes down from the Drew Estate higher-ups: cigar rollers, “torcedores”, can no longer enjoy the Liga Privadas they roll while they’re rolling them. They need to light up something else. And, as the story goes, a few of these torcedores went on to combine alternate vintages and primings of the same leaves as the Liga 9 into a cigar of their own. After enjoying a few of these cigars themselves, the Drew Estate team realized they had something special here. A cigar crafted by the people, for the people — and so, Undercrown was born. 

Now don’t get confused. Just because this cigar was blended with “leftover” tobacco from the LP9 doesn’t mean it isn’t a premium experience. Take, for example, the Mexican San Andres maduro wrapper. On a lesser cigar, this wrapper leaf is gritty and rustic. On Undercrown, it’s oily, expertly applied, and nearly seamless. Underneath, you’ll find a Connecticut River Valley Stalk Cut and Cured Sun Grown Habano binder and a mixture of handpicked Brazilian Mata Fina and Nicaraguan Habano long-fillers. In each cigar, these tobaccos are rolled perfectly, with a great weight in the hand and an equal firmness all the way up the length of the 6” x 52 Toro. In (literally) over 100 of these cigars I’ve enjoyed, I’d be hard pressed to think of one with bad construction. 

Toasting the foot of this cigar and taking a couple draws you’ll find a full-flavor, with tons of production off each puff. The flavor is surprisingly creamy, for a cigar this dark. There’s a natural sweetness here, complemented by notes of woodsy flavor and vanilla (or “oak”, some would call it). While there’s a lot going on here, the cigar never inches all the way up the strength dial, resting just below what I’d call full-bodied. As it continues, coffee and black pepper join the mix, until, by the end, the sweetness is mostly gone and what’s left is a more typical Nicaraguan maduro experience — plenty of spice and earth. 

So why do I keep coming back to Undercrown? It’s consistent, it’s reliable, and it is, to me, a shining example of what a maduro cigar should taste like. Never overpowering, never disappointing, and never one-dimensional. If you haven’t tried Undercrown yet, grab a 5-pack of the Gran Toro or the Corona Viva size and give it a whirl. As a note, the Corona Viva contains a higher-ratio of ligero than the other sizes, so it’ll give you more of a spicy kick. And if you have enjoyed Undercrown before this, maybe it’s time to revisit this classic cigar. I guarantee you’re going to be happy you did.
