Cigar Review: Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig

Basic Information – Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig

Size – Flying Pig (3.9×60)

Wrapper – Ecuadorian Sumatra Sun Grown

Tobacco Blend – Honduras Nicaraguan

Pricing – $11.40

Body – Full

Construction/Appearance:

The Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig’s band is red and gold with the standard Undercrown logo. Foot band is the same color palate but says “sungrown”. The cigar is a beautiful tan leather-like color, almost like a baseball glove. Smooth wrapped minimal to few veins or seams and a pig tail spiraled cap.  

Pre-Light: 

Aroma – Tangy Cedar and Barnyard 

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Cedar and Raisin

After Toast:

First Half – Initially, creamy salted caramel and nuts with white pepper on the finish show themselves. The nutmeg and cinnamon spice notes begin about halfway through this half. Burn is razor sharp and ash is light gray and fell at the half point. 

Second Half – The nutmeg and cinnamons take the stage here with the salted caramel moving to the finish. 

Suggested Pairing:

Wine – Stags Leap FAY, Stags Leap Heart of FAY, Lange Pinot Noir

Scotch – Glenmorangie 

Overall Experience:

Beautiful release from Drew Estate. I really enjoyed this Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig and it has now become one of my favorites. I loved this line when they were released and still to this day with a succulent flavor profile that is just perfect.
