Quick Smoke: Drew Estate Liga Privada No. 9 (CRA Exclusive)

15 Nov 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


This version of the Liga Privada is found exclusively in the CRA sampler, which is available only to Cigar Rights of America members. It is a well-constructed cigar with a dark, coarse Connecticut wrapper, very few veins, and pre-light notes of chocolate. It starts out toasty, but soon evolves into a dry, cool smoke with dark chocolate flavors and a hint of peppery spice.

Verdict = Buy.

    This is a really good cigar. I enjoyed the Liga Privada Corona Doble’s creamy finish at the end. Well constructed too. You can check out the rest of my review at
