New Liga Privada H99 Coming From Drew Estate

New Liga Privada H99 Coming From Drew Estate
Liga Privada H99 is a blend of aged Nicaraguan and Honduran filler tobaccos and Mexican San Andrés binder, covered in an oily, red-hued Corojo wrapper grown in the Connecticut River Valley.

For the first time since 2009, a new blend is being added to Drew Estate’s immensely popular Liga Privada family, and for now it will come in only one size.

Liga Privada H99 is a blend of aged Nicaraguan and Honduran filler tobaccos and Mexican San Andrés binder, covered in an oily, red-hued Corojo wrapper grown in the Connecticut River Valley. It’s similar to both Liga Privada No. 9, which is made with Nicaraguan and Honduran filler tobaccos, Brazilian mata fina binder, and covered in dark, broadleaf tobacco grown in Connecticut, as well as the T52, which uses a similar blend as the No. 9,  but replaces the broadleaf cover leaf with a Connecticut Habano wrapper.

 
For now, Liga Privada H99 will only come in one size—a toro, measuring 6 inches by 52 ring gauge.

The Liga Privada H99 is a 6 inch by 52 ring gauge toro, but Drew Estate says it plans to release more sizes in the future. The toro carries a suggested price of $14.33 per cigar and will be packed in 24-count boxes.

Earlier this week, Liga Privada was named one of the hottest cigar brands in America by Cigar Insider, the twice-monthly newsletter from Cigar Aficionado.
