Drew Estate Undercrown - Cigar Review Redux

Drew Estate Undercrown
Churchill 748
Picture it: Eugene, Oregon. 2017. I'm smoking a nigh flawlessly constructed cigar offering. Its combustion is wonderfully-paced and even. Notes are an oaken bowl fulla mocha latte, stirred with a strip a' pepper'd beef jerky. Leathery barnyard under-belly.

Completely enjoyable, this Undercrown. Humsoever and under critical gaze, it doth lack-some in complexities and balance. Its finish drops off the table with a slight diesel-y wake. All told, its smoke-abilty is quite high. I can well-live off this line, methinks -- sans frou-frou reviewings. Particularly with an Undercrown Sun Grown addition and previous Shade 'un.

Otapan Negro Ultimo Corte, think primo San Andres.

I was at the park the other day. A woman was wearing a fedora. Her male companion, capris. Another fella grilled something over a grill whilst wearing a dress. I write about cigars and simply report the news, gentlepersons.
