I used to hate hearing the word "gordito"...
...more on why this word used to bother me so much in a minute. First, some background info:
When Drew Estate first released their amazing Undercrown Shade cigars at IPCPR (the big cigar convention) last year...you could literally feel the excitement around this cigar.
Drew Estate does things in their own unique way and they've been shaking things up over the last few years and the release of the “Undercrown Shade” was probably their biggest move yet.
This cigar was blended by "Master Blender" Willy Herrera. His continued involvement in blending and brand development within Drew Estate is evident with this exquisite blend.
Want to know what my favorite size is?
And you want to know how great this cigar is?
I used to LOATHE being called "Gordito" when I was a little boy (by one of my aunts who shall remain nameless...)
Before I tell you what "gordito" means in Spanish...let me tell you what Juan's Cigar of the Week is...
...it's the Drew Estate Undercrown Shade Gordito, baby!
Okay, now back to those childhood memories I'm still trying to get over...
Gordito is a term of endearment in Spanish which means "little fat one"! But I never took at as a term of an endearment :)
But ever since I smoked one of these beauties about 15 months ago, I learned to love the word "gordito".
By the way...guess what you can save when you grab this "little fat one" today??!
This amazing stick features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Sumatran binder, as well as Dominican Criollo 98 and Nicaraguan Criollo & Corojo fillers!
And it's 6 X 60 size make this a thoroughly enjoyable smoke from start to glorious finish!
