Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Shade Suprema

“I feel the only downside to this cigar was the draw but because of how much flavor I got off cigar, it ended up not bothering me that much. I felt the second third was the best part of this cigar. Although it smoked fast, the flavor of slight pepper, salted pretzels and caramel was enjoyable. For a mild to medium cigar I though this was very flavorful. For me this would be a perfect cigar for a golf course.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

Editorial: Puro Sabor 2018 | Factory Tours

Imagine a car enthusiast having an opportunity to tour the Ferrari factory in Maranello, or someone who is a collector of fine watches going to visit Patek Philippe in Geneva.  The chance to actually see your favorite products being constructed by hand can be a real treat for the senses, and it can also give a heightened respect for the work that goes into creating these items that we love so much.  For premium cigar lovers the products that we consume are some of the most artfully and painstakingly crafted products in the world. Still, so many cigar lovers still don’t have the first-hand experience of seeing what goes into growing fine tobacco and crafting great cigars.  During Puro Sabor 2018 I was able to visit a number of cigar factories, large and small.  In this second article of the series about the festival I will take you through these factories in the same order that I visited them.

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Sun Grown Corona

“I really enjoyed smoking this cigar. The first 1/3 of the cigar was truly fantastic. Really great spice and pepper to begin mixed with hints of sweetness. If the flavors continued throughout the rest of the cigar, it would have ranked much higher for me. While the second and final 1/3 of the cigar was very good, I was missing a lot of the flavors that the cigar started out having. ” -David F. (dfafjf)

Quick Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Liga Privada Aniversário Robusto

To be honest this cigar reminded me a lot of the All Out Kings, which is made at Drew Estate using the same Habano wrapper as T-52. It is very much like a mild version of the T-52. The final third was just a bit sour, but not a huge turnoff and I think this will improve with time. I really enjoyed this smoke and it is quite a departure from previous Liga Privada releases in its strength, yet it retains the complexity. I am curious to see how these age, definitely get a hold of some of these if you can.

Blind Cigar Review: Herrera Esteli | Toro Especial Tubo

“This cigar offered up a nice balanced mix of cedar and coffee throughout. Some cocoa, orange zest and leather kept me engaged while the bookend pepper was a nice addition. Maybe not a special occasion smoke, it’s certainly one to keep on hand.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Liga Privada | Único Serie Ratzilla

“Where do I start. The flavors of cedars and spices were very enjoyable. The tingle left on the palate and tongue were very enjoyable. The smoke enticed you to want more. I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar. I would pair this with a dark beer or a red wine. I did not want it to end. For the length, I was a bit surprised at the time it took to smoke it. I thought it would have been longer. Very enjoyable and I would recommend this to my friends.” –Eric (smalls29)
