The Undercrown Shade had a fairly good cumulative construction. However, one of the three cigars reviewed had an uneven wrapper and a slightly detached cap. These defects did have an adverse impact on the overall burn, draw, and consistency of that cigar. – 5.3 Score


This cigar gets an above average burn rating from our team. There were slight issues with an uneven burn. The draw, while slightly firm, was enjoyable and produced a good smoke volume. One of the cigars reviewed went out when placed down for only two minutes. – 4.5 Score


Flavor is where this cigar really shines! The Undercrown Shade is light, nutty, and slightly creamy. There is a hint of pepper in the first initial draw or two but it mellows and balances well after about the first third. – 5 Score

In typical Drew Estate Fashion, the Undercrown Shade is a delicious, fairly well made cigar. If you are interested in a cigar on the lighter side of the flavor spectrum, this cigar is a must for your palate!
