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.
