Drew Estate Undercrown
The Drew Estate Undercrown is by far my favorite smoke.
Drew Estate Undercrown’s appearance is absolutely stunning. She’s a show stopper, for sure. Heads turn when she walks into the room. Her band is beautiful. This beauty is put together very nicely. She has a flavor of chocolate with hints of leather. What a complex smoke. She’s absolutely enjoyable every time with lots of white smoke and an incredibly even burn. I’ve never had to relight….ever.
As you likely know, Jonathan Drew of Drew Estate is a game changer. He’s taking the industry by storm. If you’re headed out for a night on the town, grab one of his sticks and prepare for absolute pleasure. These smokes are absolutely amazing—and are the hottest trend to boot.
I received my first Undercrown from a fellow BOTL (Brothers of the Leaf) and thought, “This cigar looks great, but what is it?” I did some quick research, and realized I had to light this one up right away. Everyone was talking about it. I cut it up, and the rest is history. Now, it’s one of my favorites and it’s not unusual to find me smoking an Undercrown.
At one time, and maybe so now, Drew Estate’s cigar rollers got to smoke and take home cigars. Of course, they would choose their favorites. When Undercrown was first blended and rolled, a lot of their team members were smoking them (they’re just that amazing). Then, as sales increased, the demand became so high that Drew Estates had to limit these ‘give aways’ to meet their sales quotas. Very cool story. But, also an indication of the quality and goodness you’ll experience in an Undercrown.
The Lighter: I had to use my Colibri Enterprise lighter to smoke this one. This lighter has a sleek design, triple flame, punch cutter, and visible fuel window. Take this with you when you head to your favorite cigar bar—it’s sure to impress.
The Beer: A favorite smoke merits a favorite beer. And, the month of October merits Spaten’s Oktoberfest, a great German beer. I had my first Spaten on a military base in Dusseldorf, and it reminds me of my time and travels overseas.
My question to you: If you were a cigar roller, what company would you want to roll for? You know my answer!
