Quick Smoke: Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Velvet Rat

17 May 2014



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.”

Velvet Rat

While Drew Estate crafts many excellent cigars, in my opinion there is none finer than the elusive Velvet Rat (one of only a few cigars to ever receive our five-out-of-five rating). Yes, it’s hard to find. Yes, it’s expensive at about $14. But this Connecticut Broadleaf-wrapped beauty is a lighter, creamier, more harmonious blend than the famed Liga Privada No. 9. I love me some Liga, however the Velvet Rat (6.25 x 46) elevates the blend to a new level. Expect Drew Estate’s trademark draw with notes of coffee bean, cocoa, pepper spice, syrup, and caramel. Think moist chocolate cake.

Verdict = Buy.

    Love your website and comments. Wish though you would choose some cigars to review or present that people could actually find/buy. Many of the cigars you talk about are out of stock, production or will never be found anywhere. Thanks

    Just smoked one of these last night. It really is an impressive cigar, great smoke production and aroma.
