Aging Room Solera

Cigars That Will Brighten Any Day

The Aging Room Solera brand uses a mixture of various aged tobaccos from different years to create a wonderfully balanced and highly complex smoking experience. Named for a special process first used for certain vintage wines, master-blender Rafael Nodal uses this same method with top-quality Dominican tobaccos. The result is a marriage of distinct flavors that occur long before the cigars are rolled. Solara is a slow burning, premium handmade, medium bodied cigar. Fans will simply love these luxury smokes.

Undercrown Shade

You Had Me At Golden Wrapper!

A wonderful follow-up to Drew Estate’s enormously popular Undercrown line, the Shade is a mellower-bodied offering featuring one of most stunning golden-bronze Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers that you will ever find. Although this cigar is medium-bodied in strength, shoppers who normally prefer a fuller body will find Undercrown Shade equally appealing. Drew Estate fans will travel far and wide to find these babies, so we suggest you fully stock up when you place your next order with Santa Clara Cigars.
