Drew Estate Undercrown Flying Pig

Simply Magnificent!┬áThis cigar is no less than special. Flawless presentation & perfect roll with a nice oily feel. Prestige appearance that was nicely topped off with the lion emblazoned band. The scent of this wrapper was unlike anything I have experienced. Such a deep earthy scent with hints of leather. First third tasted distinctly of […]

Cigar was weighty, slightly oily and packed solid. Great appearance ticked all boxes for presentation. This was my first time using a cigar punch which I recommend. Really liked that it left the cap intact. First draws were very light which quickly subsided to medium with full strength. First third had a hint of coffee […]
