Liga Privada is the coveted gem within the Drew Estate portfolio, crafted meticulously using their most prized tobaccos but produced in limited quantities. The original No. 9 and T52 blends have been elusive finds for enthusiasts. However, introducing Liga Privada H99—the first regular production blend in the Liga lineup since 2009. This offering boasts a robust, full-bodied character and an intense flavor profile.
The magic of Liga Privada H99 lies in the hybrid Corojo-seed wrapper leaf cultivated in the Connecticut River Valley. This wrapper is a testament to careful craftsmanship—stalk cut from the fields and meticulously extra fermented, resulting in a dark and oily appearance. Complementing this beautiful wrapper are Mexican San Andres binders and a blend of rich fillers sourced from Honduras, Nicaragua, and Pennsylvania. This combination delivers a meaty profile with delightful peppery accents and a satisfying touch of savory chocolate sweetness.
