Drew Estate has announced the release of the Undercrown ShadyXV, a line extension to their coveted Undercrown Line produced in partnership with Shady Records. The Detroit-based Shady Records will celebrate their fifteenth anniversary in 2014 and will be working with Drew Estate on the release of the Undercrown ShadyXV. ShadyXV, a compilation celebrating the label’s anniversary and featuring greatest hits alongside new music from Shady Records artists, will be released on November 24.
The Undercrown ShadyXV will be offered in a 5 x 50 box pressed belicoso size, featuring the same blend as the Corona Viva line. For hardcore fans, this release follows the lineage of the Corona Viva and Dogma blends. The cigar will be limited to 500 10ct soft packs, which will be sold exclusively through Detroit-area cigar retailers (full list below) in honor of Shady Records fifteenth anniversary.
When asked about the project, Drew Estate co-founder Jonathan Drew stated that, “this project has been in the works for some time and I couldn’t be more amped that it’s finally coming to fruition. Anyone who knows JD understands my affinity towards hip-hop, so to have this opportunity to work with Paul Rosenberg and the Shady family is a true honor. Drew Estate is always on the cutting edge and ‘in the cut’ — and the Undercrown ShadyXV is no exception. This will be a collector’s piece for both the Drew Estate and the Shady fan.”
Paul Rosenberg, Eminem’s long-time manager and partner in Shady Records, was the impetus behind this collaboration and had this to say about the Undercrown ShadyXV from New York:
“As an avid boutique cigar smoker and a long-time Drew Estate fan, this collaboration on our label’s 15th anniversary is a huge honor that I’m really excited about. JD and his team went all-out to create a really special smoke that I’m very proud to be associated with.”
The 10ct soft packs of the Undercrown ShadyXV will retail for $99.95 MSRP, or $9.95 for a single cigar. The ShadyXV will be shipped to stores by November 27th. Please remember that quantities are extremely limited
