The Undercrown Corona Viva has an inviting appearance thanks to its dark wrapper that sports a slightly reddish tint and some dark spots. The decorative band near the head showcases a large lion’s head in gold that gives the cigar a regal look. Moving onto the cigar itself once again and not its decorations, the wrapper is very oily. The Corona Viva feels firm to the touch and has several small veins running throughout. As I take a whiff of the cigar I pick up a scent of chocolate, while the cold taste is of coffee.

After giving the Drew Estate Undercrown Corona Vivia a few more looks I finally light it and enjoy a solid burn. The draw is easy. The gray ash is long and stays on for well over an inch. The burn is even from start to finish, with only a couple minor touchups needed.

Now let’s get into the important part of the Undercrown Corona Viva: the flavor. Drew Estate did a good job here, and the cigar starts off with a tasty combo of coffee and chocolate in the first third. The second third shifts to a delicious combination of sweetness, nuts, cedar, and more coffee. The final third finishes things off with chocolate, nuts, and sweetness. The Corona Viva never gets harsh, and medium to full-bodied seems like a correct description of its strength.

As I expected, the Drew Estate Undercrown Corona Viva was a quality smoke. Everything was up to par, including the appearance, burn, and flavor. If you are looking for a flavorful cigar to enjoy with a cup of coffee or as a treat after dinner to unwind, the Undercrown Corona Viva is a solid choice. At $7 each, the Corona Viva is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Look for it in packs of five and boxes of 25 as well.

The Drew Estate Undercrown Corona Viva earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.
