Drew Estate Liga Undercrown Gran Toro Cigar Review
This 6×52 cigar features a very dark brown, oily slightly toothy firm wrapper with a couple small veins, tight seams, double cap and rich chocolate tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw, thin but flavorful medium-full bodied smoke with notes of a creamy peppery earth and tobacco with a long zingy finish. The first third changes things up, going to a smooth creamy sweet bread, with an almost soft candy like quality. Smoke is thin but plentiful, especially between draws. Body is medium at most and the finish short and clean. 45 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, the ash has dropped twice, construction is perfect with a razor sharp burn and perfect draw. Flavors remain unchanged delivering the exact same experience to this point. By 55 minutes in I started getting quite a head rush, proving this stick had quite a strength kick, more so than the body. Ending at 1:20 the last third dropped a bit of the sweetness going to a deeper earth and tobacco combo with a bit of a parched finish, not adding more than the slight bump in strength. Thank you very much to viewer Kris McKinney for sending this in for review!
