Undercrown Shade cigars are completely dominating the cigar industry. This silky smooth beauty is the second release in the Undercrown line by Drew Estate, and unlike most movie sequels, this one lives up to this franchise's legacy. The Shade is made with Dominican Criollo '98 and Nicaraguan Corojo and Criollo longfillers, a Sumatran binder, and flavorful Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. The result is a medium bodied, full flavored smoke that is almost too good for words. Get your box today!
Excellent flawless construction, razor sharp burn, aroma and taste is terrific, was given one by a friend, will definitely buy more of these
Starts out mild, consistent taste all the way through. Well constructed. Finishes beautifully.It s reminiscent of the Chateau Real but without the grassy notes.
I ve smoked dozens of top-rated Connecticut shades and these remain the best. Better than Rocky, Davidoff, Macanudo, Oliva. Of course, a matter of preference. The Shade is rich in notes of pine and cedar, tinged with a good nutty, seedy flavor. Minimal on the buttery caramel notes, and the grassy notes sit sideline. A touch of baseball mitt leather. A dry, dry smoke. Excellent draw, consistent burn.
Great, complex flavours! Recommended!Had an issue with the wrapper as it unraveled three times, just above the burn. Beautiful cigar, smooth wrapper, almost invisible seams. A dance between spicy and honey-sweet.
