cignewrel8.1 There have been several new and upcoming cigar releases to report recently, and we will cover many of them today. Keep reading for details on some tempting selections from Drew Estate, CAO, and Macanudo.

Drew Estate Undercrown

The Undercrown line is a blend credited to the minds of only the best Liga Privada torcedors. The heads in charge at Drew Estate asked that the torcedors smoke less of the cigars they were rolling, so they decided to create their own Liga Privada. After careful deliberation, the Undercrown line was born. It’s not just for the torcedors anymore, however, as cigar fans everywhere can now enjoy this refined and balanced selection.

The cigar features a filler of Nicaraguan Cuban Seed and special Brazilian Mata Fina tobaccos. A T52 Connecticut River Valley stalk cut and cured Habano binder comes next, and an Otapan Negro Ultimo Corte wrapper completes the composition. For added creaminess, the wrapper leaf’s harvest is delayed an additional for weeks to give it more time under the sun.

The Undercrown is listed as being medium to full-bodied in strength, offering a sweet, creamy, and smooth smoking experience. Priced between $7.45 and $9.95 per single, the cigar comes in five sizes: the 5 x 54 Robusto, 6 x 52 Gran Toro, 6 x 52 Belicoso, 7 x 54 Corona Doble, and 6 x 60 Gordito. Look for it in boxes of 25 when it hits shelves in September.

Drew Estate “My Uzi Weighs a Ton”

Drew Estate is no stranger to edgy cigars, and the new “My Uzi Weighs a Ton” line adds to the brand’s quirky tradition. The unique moniker comes from Jonathan Drew himself. Months into the blending process, Drew felt that the cigar was best in its hearty 6 x 60 format, which he began referring to as “The Uzi.” One day, Drew went to pick up a package containing 50 of the cigars, prompting him to say, “Damn, My Uzi’s weigh a ton!” As you can see from the official release, the name stuck, and the rest was history. Besides its unique name, “My Uzi Weighs a Ton” also marks the first collaboration between Drew Estate and Joya de Nicaragua.

The line "My Uzi Weighs a Ton" is from Public Enemy. Mid to late 80s. Just admit you stole the line from them. No shame in biting PE.
