Boy, this one’s hard to categorize. The Unico Series features a number of different experimental blends from Drew Estate that take what works about the Liga-style cigars and branch off in a new and interesting direction. The Drew Estate Unico Series Feral Flying Pig is one of the most popular, and most distinctive, members of the Unico family. It also varies the size and shape, weighing in at 6 x 60 – two inches longer than the standard Drew Estate flying pig.
That extra length means more Liga goodness and also a cooler start than most Drew Estate flying pigs allow you. In particular, the Drew Estate Unico Series Feral Flying Pig contains a tobacco blend that was specifically calibrated to work with this size and shape of cigar.
The draw is nice and open, just right for such a large ring-gauge. Smoke-heads won't be disappointed: like many Drew Estate flying pigs, this thing could do the smoke effects for a Metallica show. The burn is also impressive even for a cigar of this girth and length.
The palate of the Unico Feral flying pig is creamy earth and dark coffee, with white pepper playing a larger role than black pepper, though the latter is still evident in the retrohale. Chocolate comes into play about a third of the way in and goes extremely well with the creamy body. It lacks some of the complexity of the T52 or No.9, but it delivers big, satisfying flavors in an even bigger package.
