Drew Estate Liga Privada No.9
Drew Estate has established a reputation for creating some of the most innovative cigars to come on the market within recent memory. By combining the familiar with the avant garde, this cigar maker offers enthusiasts a unique smoke in every box.
The Liga Privada No.9 is no exception. However, Drew Estate didn’t throw any bells or whistles into this cigar. It is very traditional without a hint of being boring and predictable. A straightforward blend of three excellent Cuban-seeded tobaccos grown in separate regions, one of them the famed Jamastran Valley of Honduras, the Liga Privada gets its characteristic mellow sweetness from a Connecticut Broadleaf Ligero wrapper. So, while this is absolutely a strong cigar on the palate, a hint of sweetness lingers on the lips. What the smoker experiences is a constant interplay of robust tobacco with an underlying gentle and steady succulence.
It is a pleasant surprise to experience this subtle Maduro sweetness which takes nothing away from the spicy and earthy taste aficionados will expect from a cigar with this kind of full-bodied Cuban legacy. As you would expect from Drew Estate Cigars, the construction is solid and beautiful to behold. The aroma of this cigar has bystanders sniffing in appreciation as well.
The Liga Privada No.9 is available in a 52 ring size and various lengths. Taking a majestic 7.00 X 52 Corona Doble from the humidor is an invitation to sit down, light up, settle back, and contemplate the day’s events, ideally in the presence of like-minded companions.
