A simply splendid smoke and possibly the most popular cigar ever created by Drew Estate, the Liga Privada No. 9 never ceases to amaze me! Originally part of Drew Estate president Steve Saka’s private stash, this beautiful vitola comes dressed in a stunning Connecticut broadleaf wrapper that is so dark and seamless, it looks like it was painted on. The cigar burns so slowly that it almost literally crawls, which is a good thing because it allows you to fully enjoy its incredibly balanced full-bodied flavor. An entrancingly sweet aroma backs luxurious notes of espresso, milk chocolate, leather, and earth. Relentless in its pursuit of perfection, the cigar remains impossibly delicious right down to the nub.
