The C-4 earns a satisfactory rating in the flavor department. It’s not entirely full of complexity, but it’s not one-dimensional, either. The first third begins with rich chocolate and leather. The second third picks up in strength a bit. Notes of earth and spice are present here. The final third offers more chocolate, as well as coffee. Medium to full-bodied seems like an accurate description for the C-4. Again, it’s not as powerful as its explosive name would suggest, but it’s also not soft enough for a beginner.

Did the Viaje C-4 blow me away? No, but it still offers an enjoyable smoking experience. It offered a decent burn and some bold flavors that should attract experienced smokers. A single sells for around $10 each and you can also purchase the C-4 in boxes of 75. Give a single a try if you are looking for something new in the medium to full-bodied range. Make sure you have something in your stomach prior to lighting up, however. The C-4 is extremely limited, so don’t delay if you plan on smoking one.

The Viaje C-4 earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

Drew Estate Undercrown Robusto

drewunder

The Drew Estate Undercrown is a cigar that was initially produced for the company’s factory rollers. Why? They were supposedly smoking too many cigars, so Drew Estate wanted them to shift their smoking attention to a line of their own. Word got around that the Undercrown was quite the cigar, so they eventually decided to make it available to the public. The Undercrown was also produced to help stop a shortage of the highly popular Liga Privada cigars, and it uses some of the same tobaccos. The only difference is the aging and primings selected for the Undercrown.

The Drew Estate Undercrown measures 5 x 50. Other offerings in the Undercrown line include the 6 x 52 Gran Toro, 6 x 52 Belicoso, 6 x 60 Gordito, and the 7 x 54 Corona Doble. The cigar has a filler composed of Brazilian Fina Mata and Nicaraguan Cuban Seed tobaccos. The binder is of the T52 Connecticut River Valley Stalk Cut and Cured Habano variety, and a San Andres wrapper tops things off. The Undercrown is considered to be a medium to full-bodied cigar.
