Brand Profile

In early 2009 Drew Estate asked their torcedores to smoke fewer Liga Privada cigars because they were leaving too few to be exported. This request was met with the disappointment you would expect, but rather than being disgruntled they responded by blending their own signature liga.

Incorporating many of the same rare tobaccos, but of different vintages and primings, the cigar they created was no mere replacement. Rather it is an exceptional smoking experience of uncompromising quality and flavor that deserves to be smoked by all.

It is always the master makers who are heralded, but the reality is that great cigars are the product of many talented people, most of whom toil in factories with no publicity ever. They are the uncelebrated heroes who make all of our lives more pleasurable with the cigars they craft. And therefore, it is with great pleasure that we are now sharing their factory floor creation with you as the Drew Estate Undercrown cigar, borne ouot of the Drew Estate worker’s ingenuity, resourcefulness and passion for a great cigar.

From Cigar Aficionado:

"Drew Estates co-founder Jonathan Drew decribes the Liga Privada Undercrown as an "inverse Liga Privada," the Undercrown blend consists of many of the same premium tobaccos as are found in Drew Estate's Liga Privada No. 9 and T52 lines, but with a twist.

As the story goes, the torcedores in the Drew Estate cigar factory were smoking too many Liga Privadas, so they blended the Undercrown for themselves after they were told to stop depleting the Liga Privada inventory. Rather than use Connecticut wrapper used on Liga Privada blend, which is always in very limited supply at the factory, the rollers turned to the equally dark Mexican San Andrés Negro.

"We have the farmer harvest the tobacco later than is common to increase the starch in the leaf so that when it is air cured, it results in higher levels of natural sugars," said company president Steve Saka. He said this practice means the harvest is delayed by four or more weeks.

The torcedores also "inverted" Undercrown's binder and filler tobaccos, too, using the same leaf in a Liga Privada blend but from different vintages and primings on the plant. For instance, the stalk-cut Connecticut used as a wrapper on the Liga Privada T52 is the binder in the Liga Privada Undercrown blend."
