The sophomore release of Undercrown, Shade is a significant shift away from the dark, bold maduro cover-leaf of the original Undercrown to the more mellow, yet equally expressive flavor of the Connecticut Shade varietal. Drew Estate’s Master Blender, Willy Herrera, brought back the original blending team and challenged them to see if they could do it again…and the did not disappoint!! Featuring a regal Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, a luscious Sumatran binder and a filler blend of Dominican Criollo ’98 and Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 and Corojo ’99 tobaccos, Undercrown Shade is medium-bodied and presents ultra-smooth flavors that only Connecticut Shade wrapper tobaccos can deliver. Offering notes of cream with lush hints of vanilla, caramel and pepper, Undercrown Shade strikes the ultimate balance of Nicaraguan tobacco’s earthiness and the silky-smoothness of Connecticut Shade.
