Really enjoyed the UF-13 prerelease, excited to give these a try fresh. Great design on the cabeza colita cap, just stunning. Once again I'm blown away by the contest, DE really knows how to do it up right.

One of the releases I'm looking forward to the most, can't wait till these are more available. Thanks for the review and one of the most ridiculous contests I've seen.

Thanks for the review and the contest, these sound amazing. Love that size, these will most likely end up being one of my go to short smokes. As always, top notch and unique packaging from DE.

@Brooks @johnny_five_is_alive @Charlie Minato Thanks for the update Brooks, I'm sure when you have more info it will be posted. I'm a fan of the Holiday Blend and was looking forward to this year's release, but I really hope there are two blends because I'm not sold on the Candy Cane yet.

Charlie, are there 2 releases of the Holiday Blend (1 regular and the Candy Cane) this year or is the Candy Cane the Holiday Blend for this year? Just curious because you mentioned two in the article, but the picture just shows the Candy Cane.
Thanks for the review and the contest. I like the idea smaller store releases, hopefully that is something that Andre will continue and maybe expand to include more lines. Even though I'm a fan of the Oro line, I'm afraid that the price point is a bit too high for me, but it would be interesting to see how the extra aged tobacco influenced the blend.

Excellent news! I can't wait to give these a try, I've heard great things about the Altal.

Great review Charlie, sounds like another excellent cigar to come from DE. Honestly, you made the VR sound like some sort of delicious dessert, and I can't wait until these are released. Any idea what the availability or release pattern is going to be like? Since the wrapper is a bit different, is there any hope that these will be a bit easier to come by?

Wish these were available stateside, because they sound amazing. I have noticed the changes in the viva as well, I think they are really starting to shine, love that blend. Anyway, thanks for the review, its always great to see a pig with an ash that long.

Thanks for the review, I was looking forward to the frank jr. the most, but from what I've heard and your review it sounds like many are a bit disappointed with its performance. Still, I like the concept and can't wait to try what Pete puts out next.

I was a fan of the orig. wolfman, but definitely see myself reaching for the smaller version much more frequently. Thanks for the review, it sounds like many of the little monsters may be better than their big brothers.

Thanks for the review, I really do love the sizes of the little monsters. I haven't smoked a lot of the orig. drac, but your review has me really looking forward to lighting up the smaller version.

Nice review, while still haven't had a chance to try this little monster, I enjoyed the original face, and think with the smaller RG this will be one of the standouts of the group.

Nice review, I'm still waiting for my B&M to get them in, so I haven't had a chance to smoke any yet. The mummy sounds interesting with that grapefruit flavor, but I'm definitely going to give it some time before I fire one up.

@Tom504 I think the low review might be due to the construction issues. I've smoked around 5 of these so far and had issues with 2 of them, which completely ruined the experience for me. The other 3 in my opinion were excellent, and consistent with what Brooks said about the 648. Since you've had both, which size did you prefer, and did you notice a difference in the flavor profile between them?

Spot on review, your closing comments echo my feelings about this release. Not that this is a bad cigar, but there are plenty of other AB blends that I would reach for before this stick. Aesthetics aside, I was expecting more in terms of flavor and complexity, and ultimately was disappointed by how ordinary this release ended up being for the price. Hopefully, AB will continue to experiment with releasing limited editions, but unfortunately I will have to think twice before picking up another box.

Finally got a chance to try this last night, fantastic cigar and spot on review. While I was a fan of some of the other sizes, I absolutely love the corona viva. The blend just works so well and is by far my favorite in the undercrown line, definitely something that I will be adding to my regular rotation. A long overdue thanks to halfwheel and drew estate for sponsoring the contest!

Another excellent review, I do love the presentation and the box size of these. I really enjoy the Fausto line, so I'm curious to see how this size compares to the others, guess I'll have to see when they come out later this year.

Thanks for the review, makes the wait till April that much harder. I am a big fan of the Undercrown line, and with the different blend and size it sounds like something that I'll be smoking a lot of but I doubt that I'll be able to come close to Saka's magnificent record.
