The Liga Privada No. 9 you may know as the famous blend that got Drew Estate onto Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of the Year list in 2015 at number #10. It’s complex, full-bodied, full flavored, and a real meal in a cigar. The long-filler mix is Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco, the binder is a spicy Brazilian Mata Fina leaf, and the wrapper is that well-known Connecticut broadleaf Oscuro. Your Liga Privada No. 9 carries the flavors of dark roasted coffee, chocolate, and a famous note of Louisiana perique pipe tobacco (according to Cigar Aficionado). It’s the perfect way to start off the Drew Estate Liga Privada No. 9 Flying Pig Plus UC and KFC Sampler.
Before we go on, we should also mention that the “flying pig” is simply Drew Estate’s name for the 4 x 60 chubby cigars you get in this sampler. With the pigtail cap on them, it’s not hard to imagine, right?
Next in the Drew Estate Liga Privada No. 9 Flying Pig Plus UC and KFC Sampler are the Undercrowns. Here you’re getting flying pigs of the Maduro, Shade, and Sungrown versions. The Undercrowns were blended by a team of Drew Estate cigar rollers to be similar to the No. 9, but to use more plentiful vintages and primings. That is, Undercrowns feature the same tobacco types, but include leaves that are just a touch different in terms of which year they were harvested and where on the stalk the leaves grew.
The taste of each is a bit different, due to the wrapper variations. The Undercrown Maduro uses a Mexican fermented cover leaf, the Undercrown Shade uses Ecuadorian Connecticut tobacco, and the Undercrown Sungrown is wrapped in Ecuadorian Sumatra. As the flavors go, Undercrown Maduro has a core of espresso with a touch of sugar, the Shade is white pepper up front, creamy sweet tea in the back, and the Sungrown is known for its cinnamon finish.
When you’re done with your flight of Undercrown flying pigs, the Drew Estate Liga Privada No. 9 Flying Pig Plus UC and KFC Sampler finishes strong with the piggiest of them all, the KFC flying pig.
Also known as the Kentucky Fire Cured cigar, this one is the ultimate barbeque cigar. To start, the tobacco is fire-cured instead of simply air-cured after harvesting. This means that the leaf got smokiness added to it right from the start. The KFC flying pig is also made with Kentucky burley tobacco and Virginia tobacco (that’s the real Kentucky part). These are mixed with Nicaraguan long-fillers, a Brazilian Mata Fina binder, and a Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper.
The taste of the KFC flying pig is very much in line with slathered ribs: oak, hickory, and sweet maple. It’s a nice case of a cigar that lives up to its name.
