For the third consecutive year, Cigar Dojo and Drew Estate have collaborated to introduce a limited release of Undercrown DOGMA Sun Grown cigars.
The cigars were announced during episode no. 356 of Smoke Night LIVE, featuring Dojo alum Jack Heyer (now social media specialist for Drew Estate), revealing the cigars would soon be shipping for the third year running.
As with former releases, the DOGMA Sun Grown is rolled in a chunky 5? x 54 box-pressed format, packaged in boxes of 24 cigars. The blend is based on the award-winning Undercrown Sun Grown, including an Ecuadorian Sumatra sun-grown wrapper, a zesty Connecticut River Valley stalk-cut/cured sun-grown Habano binder, and a boosted blend of Nicaraguan fillers. This includes the cigar’s signature ingredient of an extensively aged ligero leaf from Nicaragua’s Nueva Segovia region (i.e. the cigar’s DOGMA-fication).
“Three years after introducing our first collaboration with Drew Estate with the Undercrown Dojo Dogma Maduro, we sought to extend the line with an all-new Dojo Dogma expression,” explains Guttormson. “That new expression was Undercrown Dojo Dogma Sun Grown, a hefty and toothy spice bomb take on the Dogma experience that smokes and tastes great from the first puff all the way to the end. It was so good that it became Cigar Dojo’s Cigar of the Year in 2017 and has been a favorite among the Cigar Dojo community ever since.”
The Undercrown DOGMA Sun Grown features the bold DOGMA sub-band as well as the Undercrown Sun Grown foot band, and the boxes display both Undercrown and Cigar Dojo imagery, being branded into the cigars’ wooden box. This year’s release is priced at $11/cigar (or $264.08/box MSRP), which will launch nationally alongside the Undercrown DOGMA 10th Anniversary on Dec. 12th through participating Drew Diplomat Program retail members. Additionally, there will be a special release party on Dec. 9th at 6pm (EST), hosted by Smoke Inn Cigars in Boynton Beach, FL.
“Undercrown is the ‘Peoples’ Champ’; a cigar created by the hardworking torcedores at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate,” says Jonathan Drew, Founder and President of Drew Estate. “Undercrown Dojo Dogma Sun Grown is great right out of the box but it gets even better with age. So, snag a box now and smoke a bunch, and grab another box to throw in the humidor to age out.”
The Undercrown DOGMA Sun Grown was first released in 2020 following the success of the original Undercrown DOGMA combined with the Dojo’s love for the standard Undercrown Sun Grown cigar (which was awarded the No. 1 Cigar of the Year in 2017). With the Undercrown DOGMA Maduro becoming an annual tradition after reemerging in 2018, it wasn’t long before the DOGMA Sun Grown was underway, eventually providing the yin to the DOGMA Maduro’s yang in 2020.
