Drew Estate Commemorates the 10th Anniversary of Liga Privada With New Release
July 14, 2018
Drew Estate announced today Liga Privada 10-Year Aniversario, a cigar that we spared no expense in creating to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Liga Privada. The 10-Year Aniversario will be displayed in Drew Estate’s Booth at the IPCPR Convention and Tradeshow held, July 14-17, 2018 in Las Vegas Nevada.
Our dedication to collaborate with the most renowned growers in the Connecticut River Valley resulted in the next chapter of Liga, the Liga Privada 10–Year Aniversario. This full throttle beast of peppery spice is swathed in a robust Criollo capa from the heart of the Valley, where we grow the mighty leaf that graces Liga Privada. Featuring a San Andres Otapan Negro Último Corte capote that adds razor sharp spice and burn to a core blend of well-aged Nicaraguan and Honduran tripa leaf.
Packaged in 10 count boxes featuring a unique Cola de Pescado head, and Pies Tapado foot, the Liga Privada 10-Year Aniversario Toro, 152 mm (6") x 52, is available with an MSRP of $179.00 per box.
From the Wynwood Safehouse, “The hard work began deep in the Valley, hunting for the dense lush leaf required to turn our dream cigar into a reality. This cigar symbolizes the bond of partnership between farmer and manufacturer to grow a Criollo Capa that is worthy of unmatched celebration. Exclusively grown for Drew Estate, I challenged Willy Herrera and the factory team at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate to create the cigar that could live up to the Broadleaf Bully that we have come to love, to celebrate the 10 years of Liga Privada.”
The production is limited to only 10,000 cigars or (1,000 boxes) of the Liga Privada 10-Year Aniversario Toro celebrating the 10-year anniversary. The Robusto, Corona Doble, and Torpedo sizes will be available in the future after additional crop harvests.
From Little Havana, Miami, Master Blender Willy Herrera, “It was a deep honor to be entrusted with adding the next chapter to Liga Privada and leading the Factory Blending Team. I am proud to report that the harvests of the Connecticut Criollo by our farmers were successfully fermented at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate, and the cigars have been aging for this celebration. We have worked out the details in regard to fermentation time, style, and temperature. Much like we had to learn with No. 9 Broadleaf and T52 Habano, we continue to increase the amount of Connecticut Criollo we can ferment. This does not come with insignificant risk as one small mistake can ruin the entire crops we have harvested. Our farm team is already planting the next harvest of Connecticut Criollo for this upcoming growing season, however this cigar will be extremely limited for the next few years as we continue to invest in our ability to manufacture with this exquisite tobacco.”
