The Undercrown Shade Gordito is one of the seven sizes of this line, made at the Drew Estate factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. It was presented to the world after the great success of the Undercrown Maduro line. Unlike the Maduro line, a Connecticut wrapper grown in Ecuador is used for the cigars of this line. On the other hand, Dominican Criollo 98 tobacco and Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo leaves are used for the filler.
Almost all the cigars of the line are sold in 25-ct boxes.
As expected, the cigar presents itself with a luminous Claro-colored wrapper, with brown reflections. To the touch, it is very smooth with barely hinted veins. Sometimes the filling has some gaps, while the draw is definitely very open. Overall, the workmanship is good.

Undercrown Shade Gordito: on the nose, the cigar is very fragrant, with notes of ripe fruit, cocoa, and vegetal tones, among which hay stands out.
