This Drew Estate Liga Privada No.9 Flying Pig cigar is made in Nicaragua. Outside, you'll find a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper.

The Liga Privada No.9 flying pig brings you the classic full-bodied blend that topped the charts as Cigar Aficionado’s #10 cigar of 2015 and that made Drew Estate a mainstream premium blender. It also helped re-popularize the Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper, which is now grown in massive quantities by farmers who have switched from shade-grown tobacco to meet the growing demand for this potent, tough-as-nails leaf.
When it came time to make these cigar hogs, the Drew Estate Liga Privada No.9 Flying Pig was the first one off the rolling desk. The DE team kept the same winning formula from the standard No.9, but added another dose of spicy ligero long-fillers and rolled the tobacco into the now-iconic 4 x 60 size.
The Drew Estate Liga Privada No.9 flying pig cigar starts with a surge of black-pepper spice that wakes you up and makes you pay attention to what's coming next: sweet natural tobacco reminiscent of leather, cedar, cocoa, and cinnamon. Cocoa and cedar build consistently over the length of the smoke while the spice continues to recede for a surprisingly smooth though powerful experience.
Don’t let the smoothness deceive you; this cigar will still knock you off your feet if you're not careful. The Drew Estate Liga Privada No.9 Flying Pig is a classic variation on an even more classic cigar.
