Quick Smoke: Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Dirty Rat

4 Oct 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.”IMG_3778 - Version 2San-Lotano-Oval-Conn-sq


The corona-sized Dirty Rat may not be my favorite Drew Estate cigar—that honor actually might go to the Velvet Rat—but it’s up there. If you can track down this rare cigar, you’ll be rewarded with a balanced, full-bodied profile of dark chocolate, cream, black pepper spice, and earthy tones. The flavors are derivative of a Connecticut Havana-seed wrapper around a Brazilian binder and a filler mix of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos. Construction is perfect, including Drew Estate’s trademark draw with copious smoke production.

Verdict = Buy.

    These are probably my favorite Drew Estate cigar and I was lucky enough to track down 2 boxes this year. I think the L40 is a close second followed by the Ratzilla (the Velvet is almost impossible to find). I smoked one the other night and the smoke dumped off of it like a house on fire!
