Born out of necessity, the factory rollers faced the challenge of satisfying the surging demand for Liga 9 cigars when their access to them was restricted. Drew Estate's master blender, Willy Herrera, presented a proposition to the rollers: to craft a blend based on Connecticut tobacco that would meet his discerning palate. With his valuable input and guidance, the result was the creation of Undercrown Shade.
Undercrown Shade offers a harmonious and flavorful profile, featuring an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper embracing a Sumatran binder, along with a blend of Dominican criollo 98' and Nicaraguan corojo and criollo long-fillers. Falling within the mellow to medium-bodied category, this blend is rich, multifaceted, and perfectly balanced, delivering notes of toasted goodness, nuttiness, subtle spice, and cream, all culminating in a delightful sweetness on the finish. Undercrown Shade is a mellow cigar that promises to captivate and intrigue even the most dedicated full-bodied enthusiasts. It recently earned a well-deserved 91-rating, a testament to its excellence.
