I normally would sit on IPCPR samples for a while, but I just couldn’t wait to try the new cigar from my friends at Drew Estate, the Undercrown. My son, Corey, and I took a pair of them out for a walk and enjoyed them very much. The story goes that the Liga Privada rollers were smoking the Ligas non-stop (and who can blame them) and the raw materials were in short supply, so they came up with their own blend to smoke. Steve and Nicholas tweaked the blend and came up with the Undercrown, made to sell at a lower price point than the Liga Privada line. Corey had heard about this from Jonathan on our Cigar Safari trip in March, but I must have missed hearing that titbit. Anyway, my wife mentioned that the aroma wafting in the windows was very chocolatey, and I did taste some chocolate in in the blend. We both really enjoyed the cigar, and can’t wait to see these hit the shelves. Seek these out over the next few months.
As long as I’m mentioning the Undercrown, here are a few quick video walk-arounds of the Drew Estate booth at the recent IPCPR show:
That’s it for now, Until the next time,
