"Delightful... Lives up to the hype"
Wonderfully dry and savory wood, peat, and asphalt notes complement by a contrasting bright floral layer.
Doesn t get bitter as it gets short as some of the larger ring vitolas tend to. Surprisingly medium bodied.
Perfect burn and draw. Tidily rolled. Tons of beautiful blue smoke.
The opposite of creamy/sour Connecticut ligas.
Overall outstanding and reasonably priced.

Bought a 5 pack smoked two so far, really like the look of the cigar but both have lit nicely and wouldn't stop smoking. Reminded me of a mosquito coil, constant smoke. I was so distracted by the smoke that I didn't really have a chance to enjoy the cigar. Three more tries to go.

Was never a Drew Estate fan with all of that Acid infused bulls**t but they turned me around with their traditional blends. Tried the Antano regular and Dark Corojo which was really good. But they blew me away with the Liga Privada. The No. 9 is beyond phenomenal. But for the price, the Undercrown is my everyday stick and you can't go wrong. Well done Drew Estate....very well done!

"Love at first puff"
There a wonder full medium body smokes that a unique they are binder flavor earthy chocolaty hit of spice with lots of smoke out put the smoke is is velvety to the pallets coats and satisfies the ash is whitish gray but down side is the burn is a bit uneven and have to keep an eye on it goes out if u dont pay attention but worth every penny

"A smoke worth waiting for at the end of the day"
This is a full bodied smoke for most, but for me is a bit on the mild side of full body. The craftsmanship is excellent and drawn consistently good. I stopped buying Acid cigars because of the consistently bad burn, draw and overall craftsmanship. The Under crown is as good as the T-52 and other more expensive Liga cigars. This is a great value for the money and a superlative smoke.

"SOMEWHAT OVER RATED..."
Good, not great.
I got the toro first. I wasn't terribly impressed even after some rest. I got the corona viva second because it was supposed to be the perfect vitola for the smoke...
I have one gran toro %26 two corona vivas in the humi. In a few month's I'll give them both a shot if they don't improve I'm going to write them off...
I wouldn't turn one down but for the money get some Room 101 or Illusione %26 have the flavor bomb you're looking for.

"Great Stick, Solid Value"
First off Andrew you are talking out of your @ss, do you know what a cigar should taste like? These are really good, definitely would not compare to a Liga, different flavor. Has a smooth full flavor, good draw, nice construction and very smooth. Nice if you smoke a cigar a day, you will enjoy this.
