Earlier this week I posted a review of the Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte and the comments on that review were inspiring. As I read through them, while smoking a Drew Estate Undercrown Gran Toro, I got the sudden urge to fire up my video camera.
At first I didn’t want to do the review, mostly because I posted a review of the Drew Estate Undercrown Dogma recently. I figured, why fight the urge? I fired up the camera and came away with a video that was about 24 minutes long.
In terms of the Undercrown lineup, I have a love / hate relationship with them. For every one I smoke that turns out beautifully, I wind up with one that is an annoyance. Sometimes the annoyance comes in the way of a stiff draw and sometimes the problem is burn trouble.
Despite the trouble, I enjoy the line and smoke them as often as I can. Buying online, as a package deal, is definitely the way to go, though. For $7.95 in a local B&M, I think there are better cigars for the money.
The Undercrown Gran Toro is a medium bodied cigar with medium flavor intensity. I find this particular cigar to be a touch watered down but the flavors of cedar, leather, and a dash of spice are appealing.
