Drew Estate Liga Privada No.9 Box Pressed Toro Exclusive Description
Yep, it's a new Liga! Get'em while they're hot (and available). This limited edition of the 94-rated smoke that captured the hearts and humidors of the world in 2015 when it took home #10 cigar of the year honors from Cigar Aficionado is now coming to you in box-pressed form. Inhale the aroma of the Connecticut Broadleaf #1 Dark wrapper‚ Taste the intrigue of the Plantation-Grown Brazilian Mata Fina binder‚ Luxuriate in the rich flavors of the Honduran and Nicaraguan Cuban Seed long-filler blend‚ The profile is out of this world: dense earth and espresso, the complex notes of perique pipe tobacco, and the tarry taste of dark red wine. There's really no mystery as to why Liga Privada No. 9 is a must-smoke and why we're always lining up for new and rare versions like this Drew Estate Lounge vitola.
This edition is box-pressed, providing a more concentrated and stable flavor as you go from one third to the next, as well as a more even burn. And because of the way your mouth is shaped when smoking a pressed cigar like this, you’ll get more aeration and may be able to explore the flavors a bit more deeply. The funny thing is, we shouldn’t even be smoking this one. It was only supposed to be an in-house blend. In fact, the band still says Hecho Exclusivamente Para El Jefe‚ (translation: made just for the boss) as an ongoing testament to that fact. But, unless the boss was going to roll them up himself, the secret was never going to last very long. And once the No. 9 was approved for sale, word spread around the Drew Estate factory that it was a fantastic blend, all the rollers got hooked.
They were told to cut back and had to come up with a new blend so the rest of us could get our hands on the No. 9 and enjoy it as much as the Drew Estate team did. And now here we are, celebrating a new rare vitola not meant for wide consumption. This story plays out time and time again with the No. 9, so if you're interested in trying this box-pressed limited edition Liga, get your order in before the smoke hounds of the world figure out what we've got and clear us out. It's only a matter of time.
Perfection is the closet word to describe it.
Well, the gift boxes with all the goodies was extra good. The Liga Pivadas were and are special. They are smooth, even drawing and burning, aroma and taste wonderful... I’d opt for these for special times. Thank you.
awesome cigar, drew estate and cigars direct never disappoint
The ordering process was very simple. I had a question for them after ordering my cigars to which they immediately responded, literally within minutes and answered. Cigars direct is my new go to for quality cigars at a great price!
