Drew Estate–My Uzi Weighs A Ton

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Thanks to the people at Drew Estate for sending me some samples of their new cigar. My Uzi Weighs a Ton will be introduced at the 2011 IPCPR trade show. The final product will have a band, and come in 3 sizes – 5×60, 6×60, and 7×60. I have limited information on the cigar. It’s name sake can be found with a simple Google search though. Anyway… Back to what matters. How did the two cigars I smoked treat me? Below I review the 5 x 60. For good measure I smoked a 7×60, which pretty much performed like this one. Read on…


Wrapper: San Andreas Maduro

Binder: Connecticut Capote

Filler: Brazilian Mata Fina, Nicaragua

Size: 5 x 60

Price: ???


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The dark wrapper had no visible flaws and looked seamless. The odor coming from the wrapper and foot was barnyard. The cigar was evenly and solidly packed with tobacco. The pre-light draw had slight resistance, and had an earthy, musty flavor.

The burn required some corrections in the first third. The ash held for well over an inch.

The first third had an interesting dark earthiness with a leathery finish. After about an inch in, a dry cocoa introduced itself. Overall, the smoke was very dry but plentiful. Through the sinus, there was a peppery spice that wasn’t too strong at all.

There were no new flavors introduced in the second third. What changed was the dominant flavor became the dry cocoa I mentioned before. Behind it followed the other flavors – earthiness with leather and some woody notes. The smoke feel became less dry and I stopped feeling parched. The aftertaste thickened up and stuck to the mouth. The peppery spice remained and may have picked up a notch.

The last third really didn’t change from the second third in terms of flavors. The body picked up a little and hit the upper medium to lower full range.

This was a good medium to full bodied cigar. The 5×60 size seemed to hit the spot for me more than the larger 7×60. I think the large 7×60 is over kill. The flavors were simple but refined. This compensated for essentially a one dimensional flavor profile.  Since I don’t know the price, I can’t factor that in to the equation. While there was no WOW factor, it was a good smoke. Depending on how much these will go for, as of now I recommend at least trying the “My Uzi Weighs a Ton” and be your own judge.
