Liga Privada No.9 – The private blend. Recently receiving an excellent 91-rating from Cigar Aficionado magazine in the December 2014 issue!
Translated to English, “Liga Privada” means the “Private Blend”. It’s the perfect name to a perfect balance. To a cigar that was crafted not for resale, but for the personal humidors of only the chosen ones. Dozens upon dozens of intricate blends were created by Drew Estate, but No.9 was the flawless winner in both flavors and characters. A rich, complex and full bodied smoking experience that isn’t harsh on the palate and begs to be smoked time and time again. It’s simply one of the most satisfying smokes you’ve ever laid your eyes on.
The moment you light up a Liga Privada No.9, you instantly get the feel that this wasn’t a cigar made for the general audience. It was intended to be smoked by the chosen few that Drew Estate decided would be appropriate. But like all things, it couldn’t be kept a secret for long. So now we get to enjoy this cigar in all its glory. Aged a full year, no expense has been spared or shortcut taken to create a cigar that is nothing short of perfection. Hell, if there was a cigar dictionary, this cigar would make a good argument to be the photo next to the definition of perfection. The tobaccos come from seven farms. The capa is a Connecticut broadleaf. The capote is a Plantation-grown Brazilian Mata Fina. The “Tripa” is a select Honduran and Nicaraguan Cuban Seed. The profile is lush, with earthy undertones and an espresso like flavor that has an incredibly dense body.
In Drew Estates ongoing search to create some of the best cigars, they have been on a constant quest to find the most unique blends, the rarest tobaccos, the finest wrappers, and the most skilled tobacconists to create the perfect smoke. Most of the samples they create are believe it or not, dismissed. Most don’t make the cut. Few are deemed worthy of the brand name. But, sometimes we like to be selfish. We like to indulge in what we have left over. So make sure to indulge the right way. Grab a Liga Privada No.9 today and partake in the joy of a true cigar.
