Additional Info

  • The Undercrown blend was originally created by our torcedors for themselves to smoke in Nicaragua – their own “liga privada.”
  • The capa is a unique strain of San Andreas Negro maduro seed grown exclusively for us whose harvest is intentionally delayed by 4+ weeks to allow for additional field and sun time resulting in a higher natural sugar content and a richer, creamier flavor.
  • “Otapan” is the name of the vega on which it is grown and “Último Corte” translates to “last cut;” a reference to its delayed harvesting.
