Quick Smoke: Drew Estate Liga Privada No. 9 Pre-Release Sample

8 Apr 2012

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.”

Back when the Liga Privada No. 9 was just hitting the market, I received a few of these “pre-release samples” dated 2007 as a throw-in when I bought a box at a Liga event at my local tobacconist. Now with around five years of age on it, I decided to light up my last remaining one to see how time has changed the cigar. It is well-balanced with milk chocolate, slight spice, and bready flavors. Not nearly as full-bodied as a more recently rolled Liga No. 9, it’s a very good smoke, but I definitely prefer a more recent vintage.

Verdict = Buy.

    Interesting. I'm unable to let any LP 9 I ever get my hands on to sit that long. I can't seem to get enough of them. I went to one of their events a few years ago and received an MF-13, still sitting in the humi and waiting for an occasion or something to smoke it. Happy Easter fellas!

    Happy Easter to all. What a great day it was to enjoy the Masters thrilling finish, spend time with family over good food, and enjoy a fine cigar. I hope you all had a terrific weekend.

    Back to work…
