Drew Estate is unveiling a new Undercrown cigar that's draped in wrapper grown in the open sun of Ecuador. Called Undercrown Sun Grown, the cigar will formally debut this week at the IPCPR trade show.

Enrobed in an Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper said to be grown in open sunlight, the cigar contains a stalk-cut binder from the Connecticut River Valley and filler from Nicaragua. According to the company, the cigar contains one leaf of aged ligero from the Nueva Segovia region of Nicaragua, which was added to the blend for strength. The cigar was crafted by Drew Estate master blender Willy Herrera and his team at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Nicaragua.

"Challenging Willy Herrera and the Undercrown blending team to create the new expression after finally securing sun grown tobacco is extremely exciting, as we have tried to secure this Sumatra Ecuador tobacco for over 15 years," Drew Estate president and founder Jonathan Drew said.

Undercrown Sun Grown is available in seven sizes: Corona, measuring 5 5/8 inches by 46 ring gauge; Robusto, at 5 inches by 54; Gran Toro, 6 by 52; Gordito, 6 by 60; Corona Doble, 7 by 54; Belicoso, 6 by 52; and Flying Pig, 3 15/16 by 60. The cigars are priced $8.08 to $12.73 and ship in 25-count boxes, save for the Flying Pig, which ships in boxes of 12.

Undercrown Sun Grown is the third installment in the popular Undercrown series, which includes Undercrown Shade, released in 2015, and the original Undercrown, launched in 2011.

Though currently available at select retailers, Undercrown Sun Grown has not yet received a national launch. It will begin shipping to cigar stores across the United States this August.
