Following up on the world renowned Undercrown series, Drew Estate has improved upon the line and released the Undercrown Connecticut Shade. A variation of the original gem, the Undercrown Connecticut is a mellow to medium-bodied cigar, primarily due to the wonderful Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.
The original Undercrown cigar was born out of a challenge. A challenge by Willy Herrera to the cigar rollers in the factory to create a cigar that would satisfy his palate, a cigar that would be equal to, or greater than, his favorite cigar; the Liga Privada 9.
“Underneath the hood” is a Sumatran binder and Dominican Criollo ’98, Nicaragua Corojo and Criollo long-fillers, the blend works with the binder and wrapper to produce toasty tastes of nuts, sweet cream, and toast, with notes of warm spice, citrus and a touch of sweet honey.
The Undercrown Connecticut Shade received a superb 91-rating by Cigar Aficionado!
