With likely the most unique name in the cigar world the My Uzi Weighs a Ton is a cigar that catches your eye (as most Drew Estate cigars do) with it’s behemoth 60 ring gauge and in my case the 7 inch long monster is hard to miss. The Uzi is a cool looking cigar with a deep brown Mexican Maduro wrapper and features a industrial looking label with big bold letters. Everything about this cigar screams BOLD, BOLD, BOLD!!
After cutting and taking a pre-light draw I was pleasantly surprised with it’s excellent draw and after lighting it I was greeted with a flavor that reminded me of waking up early on a camping trip and you can smell the morning dew mixed with the smell of the woody forest. To be honest this isn’t a super strong cigar, it’s a bit more mellow and I welcomed that because after all this is a GIANT cigar. As I smoked the cigar the flavors of a warm, soft, leather began to develop with just a touch of sweetness.
The burn on this cigar was not razor sharp but the ash was a bright white and with a double puff you could garner a massive amount of thick white smoke in your mouth. Some folks say these burn super slow but I didn’t notice that with my experience.
The My Uzi Weighs a Ton isn’t cheap, this cigar will set you back just under $10 per stick. I very much enjoyed this cigar and loved having it in the humidor because it’s one of the first cigars people will notice when browsing through your collection.
