The Undercrown Shade SUPREMA, a 6 x 50/54 perfecto, will be shipping to retailers in September, a bit later than the initial target of Father’s Day.

Drew Estate has announced the new size, the first time the brand is getting a limited edition vitola in the U.S. Like the rest of the line, it uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper over a Sumatran binder and Dominican criollo 98 and Nicaraguan corojo and criollo fillers.

It is priced at $9.60 per cigar or $47.99 for a box of five. Production numbers have not been announced.

“Since the release of Undercrown Shade in 2015, it has been a staple in humidors nationwide,” said Jonathan Drew, co-founder and president of Drew Estate in a press release. “We knew it was the right time to release the first Limited Edition for Undercrown Shade, and it’s packaged beautifully in a clean white box.”

The Undercrown Shade line debuted in 2015 in six sizes. This is the 11th size for the line and the second limited edition, following the Undercrown Shade John Aylesbury, a limited edition for Germany.
