The Undercrown DOGMA has a dark chocolate color half box pressed wrapper. The wrapper is velvety. There are a few veins evident and nearly invisible seams.
Aroma – Barnyard and smoked wood like hickory.
Type of Cut – Straight
Cold Draw – Cedar and Molasses
First third – Flavors of caramel, espresso and spice kick off this third with a nice black pepper note that really sticks the back of the throat. Few minutes in that caramel note turns syrupy towards that molasses note we saw on the cold draw mixed with wood and a light leathery note on the finish. This cigar starts full bodied, which is a change from the original Maduro. The burn is wavy and ash holds through the third.
Second Third – Flavors of caramel still carry over with the espresso, but a heavier wood component comes into play similar to a strong oak. At the mid point of the smoke a nice smoked meats and leather component mixes in. Burn stays wavy and ash fell off at the halfway point of the cigar.
Final Third – The spice takes the stage with coffee notes. There is a slight cedar tang here too followed by the smoked meat and leathery finish.Burn remained slightly wavy.
Bourbon – Bulleit
Wine– Decoy Cabernet
This Undercrown DOGMA is a complete flavor bomb that just rips a variety of succulent flavors right through the palate. I absolutely loved everything about this cigar from the caramel to espresso. This is a total full bodied smoke experience I would recommend for any of the aficionados out there.
