10 years ago, Drew Estate bestowed upon the cigar world one of the most popular and highest rated cigars in history. The Liga Privada is no longer just a cigar line, but a brand name on its own. Its symbolic lion logo can be seen on ashtrays, hats, cutters and even tattoos. It has become a symbol of power, flavor and above all quality. While we have seen additions such as the T52 and the little brother line, Undercrown, fans of the brand have been waiting in earnest for a new release under the Liga Privada flag. Well, at this year’s IPCPR trade show, our prayers were answered.
Drew Estate has announced the release of the Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo. It is handcrafted with a blend of aged Honduran and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. It is held together with a bold and rich Mexican San Andres binder. The finishing touch is a stunning Corojo wrapper grown in the heart of the Connecticut River Valley.
According to a press release from Drew Estate, the H99 will be featured in a single toro size for now, although more sizes are planned for later. This rich blend of tobaccos promises to deliver a rich and complex blend that is spicy, rich and slightly sweet.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I can hardly wait for this cigar. I have yet to be disappointed with any Liga Privada or Unico release. Each one of this cigars has its spot in my regular rotation, and I’m willing to be the H99 will find its place right there as well. Although a shipping date has not yet been announced, keep checking back here at JR Cigars for more updates and sales info on the brand new Drew Estate Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo.
