First third – Initially, creamy vanilla and salt like notes are heavy on the palate. A slight pepper lingers on the finish. A baking spice, almost a nutmeg cinnamon hybrid, begins to form about 10 minutes in. Burn is razor sharp. Ash is light gray and holding strong.
Second Third – Body moves to medium here and the vanilla takes the stage with some cream and coffee notes. Baking spices are still present on the finish. Pepper dies off. Burn remains sharp. Ash fell off at the 2.5-inch mark.
Final Third – The nutty notes take the stage and pepper comes back into play along with heavier baking spice presence. Burn remained razor sharp.
Wine – Lange Pinot Noir
Scotch – Glenmorangie
The Undercrown Sun Grown is a beautiful release from Drew Estate Undercrown. I really enjoyed this smoke and it has now become one of my favorites. The flavors are unmatched and balanced to the point where it leaves me speechless. This cigar for the money is a homerun.
