A pair of limited edition releases in Drew Estate’s Undercrown Maduro line are on their way to stores, as the company has released the Dojo Dogma and Shady XX to its Drew Diplomat retailers.
The ShadyXX is a 5 x 50 box-pressed belicoso that debuted in 2019 in honor of the 20th anniversary of Shady Records, the label founded by Eminem and noted cigar lover Paul Rosenberg. It was the second collaboration between the two companies, joining the Undercrown ShadyXV, which was made in 2015 to honor the 15th anniversary of the music label. That cigar was only sold through 10 retailers in Detroit.
The ShadyXX is packaged in gold embossed 10-count petacas that are updated to indicate the 2020 version. It is priced at $104 per pack, before taxes. While it is a limited edition, the company is not disclosing how many cigars are being made.
Also heading to stores is the Undercrown Dojo Dogma Maduro, a 6 x 56 box-pressed toro. It is priced at $107.87 per pack of 10 cigars, and like the ShadyXX is a limited edition of undisclosed quantities.
The Undercrown Dojo Dogma was originally released in 2014 as a collaboration between Drew Estate and Cigar Dojo, a blog and cigar community headed by Eric “Master Sensei” Guttormson. It got national distribution in 2018.
The two cigars share the same blend of a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper, Connecticut stalk cut habano binder and fillers from Nicaragua and Brazil. It’s a blend that’s an offshoot of the Undercrown Maduro, developed for the Undercrown ¡Corona Viva!
