Drew Estates rereleases Year of the Rat. In 2016, Drew Estate launched a Year of the Rat cigar to commemorate the epic 1996 season for the Florida Panthers. And Drew Estate did that by sponsoring the lounge at their home base, BB&T Center and by releasing a cigar. According to the legend a rat was killed in the dressing room by a player right before the first match of the season. And that player scored in the game, making the rat their lucky charm. Ministry of Cigars reviewed that cigar and published it earlier today.
But the cigar is being rereleased. In the exact same 5½x46 Corona Gorda size. And with the exact same blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran fillers. Even the Brazilian binder and Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper are the same. Only the packaging is different. This time the cigar is released for the Chinese Year of the Rat. The box will be blue and the cigars will be wrapped in gold foil.
Undercrown Corona Pequeña
Drew Estate is not only releasing a limited edition Liga Privada Unico Year of the Rat. The cigar company is also releasing a new size for the Undercrown Series. In two blends, the Undercrown Maduro and the Undercrown Shade. The new size, a 4×44 Petite Corona is named the Undercrown Corona Pequeña
The Undercrown Maduro Corona Pequeña features a Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper. It sports a Connecticut Stalk Cut and Sun Cured Habano binder. The rest are Brazilian and Nicaraguan filler leaves. The Undercrown Shade Corona Pequena features an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper over a Sumatra binder. The filler leaves come from The Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Both come in boxes of 32 cigars.
Jonathan Drew Founder and President of Drew Estate said, “Corona Pequena’s are short, squat, flavor bombs that sit between the tin size and the robusto size in the Undercrown brand family. We could go on and on about the “functionality” of this short smoke during winter months, but there is something absolutely beautiful about the Corona Pequena that is more meaningful than just utilitarianism. This cigar is a stunner in both taste and trade dress. The whole DE team is really proud of this little gem”.
