Tasting Note

No one could deny that Drew Estate is a major player in the world of cigars, but in the company's early years it was easy to dismiss them as nonserious cigar producers. Drew Estate was known for being a major player in the world of flavored (they call them infused) cigars, specifically the brand ACID, which sold in the millions of units but left cigar connoisseurs scratching their heads. The image of Drew Estate changed forever when the company released Liga Privada, a full-bodied, handmade, premium cigar powered by dark tobacco leaves, including a thick and oily broadleaf wrapper grown in the Connecticut River Valley. The cigars are hot items in cigar stores, often on back order, and they appeal to those who like strong smokes. The Belicoso has notes of white pepper, hints of charcoal, raisins and some chalky notes.
