Drew Estate announced a new version its collaboration cigar with Cigar Dojo today, Undercrown Dojo Dogma Sun Grown. It will be exclusive to Drew Diplomat retailers and will be showcased on the upcoming Freestyle Live: Special Edition hosted on facebook.com/drewestatecigar on June 11th from 7:00-9:00pm EST.
The original Undercrown Dojo Dogma was Cigar Dojo’s first collaboration release with any company. The original came out in 2014 and was re-released in 2018 at the Rocky Mountain cigar festival, then offered that same year as a regular production release to Drew Diplomat retailers.
Now, to follow that release comes the Undercrown Dojo Dogma Sun Grown. The Drew EstateUndercrown Sun Grown took Cigar Dojo’s #1 Cigar of the Year in 2017, so to honor that and come up with a sequel to the original Dogma, this cigar was created.
From the Cigar Dojo studios in Lakewood, Colorado Master Sensei Eric Guttormsom adds, “How could we possibly follow-up the original Undercrown DOGMA? We did it by taking our Cigar of the Year from 2017 and DOGMA-fying it! The Dojo team can’t wait to drop the details on Drew Estate’s Freestyle Live Facebook show TONIGHT!”
The Undercrown Dojo Dogma Sun Grown differs from the regular Undercrown Sun Grown in both blend and size. The vitola is a 5 x 54 box pressed robusto chosen by Cigar Dojo Master Sensei Eric Guttormson and Drew Estate Master Blender Willy Herrera for its bolder profile. The blend has also been tweaked to reflect the same way the original Dogma was stronger than the regular Undercorwn Maduro line.
The blend uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra seed, Sun Grown wrapper, Connecticut River Valley Stalk Cut/Cured Sun Grown Habano binder, and a and Nicaraguan fillers including the addition of one leaf of extensively aged Ligero from the Nueva Segovia region along the border of Honduras to enhance the strength. The cigar also differs from the original Dogma in its packaging where instead of bundles of 10, the Undercrown Dojo Dogma Sun Grown will come 24 count wooden boxes, featuring the emblems of Undercrown and the Cigar Dojo community. Pricing is set at $244.80 for a box and ships in August.
In addition to this new blend, Drew Estate launching the 2020 batch of the Undercrown Dojo Dogma Maduro, the original Dojo release. The blend is similar to the Undercrown Corona Viva using a Mexican San Andres wrapper, Connecticut Stalk Cut Habano binder, and filler leaves from Nicaragua and Brazil. This cigar measures 6 x 56 with a box press and comes packaged in a 10 count petaca. These carry a price tag of $107.87 per petaca and will ship this September.
