Drew Estate announced their plans to release the Liga Privada No. 9 “Pork Beli” exclusively at the Drew Diplomat Retailer, Hyde Park Cigars in Chicago, Illinois.
The Liga Privada No. 9 “Pork Beli” features a Connecticut River Valley Broadleaf Wrapper, a Plantation Grown Brazilian Mata Fina Binder, with Filler from Honduras and Nicaragua.
Translated to English, “Liga Privada” means “private blend.” It is the perfect name, as this cigar was originally crafted not for resale, but for our own personal humidors. Dozens of intricate blends were created, but No. 9 was flawless in both flavor and character. Rich, complex and full bodied without being harsh, this amazing vitola is best described in one word: satisfying.
When you light a Liga Privada No. 9, you are smoking a puro that was intended and expected to be smoked by us. Aged a full year, no expense has been spared or shortcut taken in its creation as we expect cigar perfection with every puff.
Exquisitely crafted from aged tobaccos from seven farms, this cigar was originally created for our personal humidors rather than sale. It is guaranteed to be flawless in construction, flavor and character. Rich, complex and full bodied without being harsh, this vitola is best described in one word: Satisfying.
Presented in a 120mm x 50 Belicoso in a 10 Count Soft Pack. The first 100 cigars will be available for purchase at Hyde Park Cigars with Jonathan Drew on August 27th from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Limited to one cigar per person, while supplies last. The Liga Privada No. 9 Pork Beli will be formally released this fall.
From his Wynwood Safehouse, Jonathan Drew stated, “I remember when I met Mike and Freddy the first time at a trade show in New Orleans, and how we wrote their biggest order of business with Drew Estate at the time. Hahaha, look at them now !!! They are one of the coolest Drew Diplomat Retailers in the nation, and truly understand our Rebirth of Cigars movement. When I noticed that the name of this special yearly release was “Pork Beli,” I called my dear friend Pete Johnson, and asked his permission for use of the name, as he already has a Pork Tenderloin and Chop. He was cool, as always, a class act.”
