Drew Estate My Uzi Weighs A Ton Cigar Review

This 5.5×52 stick features a dark brown mottled wrapper with a firm even pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap, slight oil sheen, soft satin feel and rich barnyard aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with good smoke output showing medium-full bodied flavors of a deep earth and musty damp slightly sweet chocolate with a long full finish. The first third burns very slowly taking 30 minutes to end, with the flavors shifting to a deep musty earth dropping the chocolate and adding a little zing to the finish. 45 minutes in at the 1/2 way point flavors shift a little bringing in a bit of sweetness to the draw while the finish goes to a shorter parched earth. Ending at 1:15 the last third went back to a damp earth, dropping the sweetness.

This is a filler review since I borked the video, filming the whole darn thing – with my mic off. Sigh.

Edit: to be more clear this is only a written review.

    Been wanting to try one of these. I haven’t been disappointed by a DE smoke yet. Still enjoying the undercrown, :).

  • JJO

    I’ve only had the Bait Fish, since until now, the larger ring gauges kept me away. Now that this one is out, I’ll have to give it a try.

    • Daniel Cohen

      Dont be discouraged by a 60 rg. The larger rg allows for a more complex blend.

      • JJO

        Actually, unless the cigar has been specifically blended for the larger RG’s, I tend to find the opposite to be true; more filler, less complexity. There are always exceptions (the Humo Jaguar Gigante was a very enjoyable cigar, IMO, as was the Diesel Shorty), but my aversion has more to do with physical comfort than anything.

        As always, smoke what you enjoy and enjoy what you smoke.

    This is a 1st , I’m having trouble getting the video review of this cigar . Is any-one else having the same problem? Seems like the video just wont load.

    • kprichardson7

      same here, all I see is the written review

      • kprichardson7

        oh I see now, I think he only posted the written review for this one because he accidentally left the mic off for the video review of it

  • dbfr181

    MUWAT is on its way now!

  • miro79

    I thought Bryan was saying tight and visible seams this whole time. I need to start reading the reviews and not just watch the videos.

  • omies

    Bought a pkg. special at local cigar club event… thought they are ok but nothing to wright home about! will smoke again just to see if opinion changes.

  • playersrun1

    foot smelled like cocoa powder and cedar/wood, while the wrapper smelled like wood/cedar and eath. was hoping for some more complexity in the smoke based on those pre-light smells, but maintained an earth/wood taste throughout.

  • stevenknisley

    This cigar looks good but its name? Some of drew estates names are a little odd

    • Jared

      It was a Public Enemy song, which expanded on a lyric from a previous Public Enemy song. It has since been swiped and reused by other artists because they lack creativity.

      • txthumper

        actually its name doesn’t come from a song, buy a bundle and read the back

  • iseedro

    lol the Mic was off, but I’ve been wanting to try this but I’ve been turned off by shop owner near my house but i will try it anyway

  • samgiroux42

    I have a friend that swears by these lately. Need to try them.

  • HerbalJedi

    love the name lol and it sounds like a decent smoke might have to throw one in the humi.

  • lazyboy

    Really enjoy this stick. Not my fav ring gauge but a great smoke. Very slow burn. Give yourself some time with this one.

  • fat cobra

    Love the Liga line how do these compair?

  • juanraulfrias

    Hi RG.

    I like the flavors on the cigars but not the strength :).
