A special size of Undercrown Shade will soon be arriving at cigar stores across the nation. The limited-edition Undercrown Shade Suprema from Drew Estate is a hefty perfecto that measures 6 inches by 54 ring gauge. It debuted at the PCA trade show earlier this summer and started shipping to retailers this week.
The Suprema shares the same tobacco blend as the regular-production Undercrown Shade line, but due to its special shape, Drew Estate says the perfecto delivers a bolder smoking profile compared to the core line. The cigar is made with an Ecuadoran Connecticut wrapper, Ecuadoran Sumatra binder and a filler mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos.
Undercrown Shade Suprema is priced at $9.60 per cigar and ships 5-count wooden boxes. It’s rolled at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Estelí, Nicaragua.
