Described by Drew Estate as ‘a complex marriage of seven distinct aged tobaccos handcrafted by only our absolute best torcedors’, their Liga Privada series quickly gained a reputation as a top-shelf product in the mould of Padron’s ‘Aniversario’ series. Liga Privada translates to ‘private blend’, which describes the original intent of these cigars: to end up in the private humidor of the Drew Estate founders, and not for resale.
As a result, Liga Privada cigars are made in limited quantities, and difficult to find even in the United States (where Drew Estate is based). A strict cap is imposed on the quantity rolled each day, so that quality is never sacrificed.
However, Drew Estate’s obsession to creating a ‘flawless’ blend means the smoker is rewarded when Liga Privada cigars are available. City Cigar currently carries a small selection of the No.9, T52, and Unico Serie blends, but due to limited production you may want to call ahead to find out about availability on any given day.
