Soon, Drew Estate’s Liga Privada 10 Aniversario Connecticut Criollo will be available regularly on a monthly basis to qualifying Drew Diplomat Program participants.
“Liga Privada 10 Aniversario is a tribute to the remaining old-school tobacco growers in the Connecticut River Valley who produce the capas for Liga Privada,” comments Drew Estate Founder and President, Jonathan Drew. “The magnificent cigar also honors our loyal consumers who’ve stood by our side through the ups and downs all these years. Today’s news is certainly welcome, as more people will now get to experience Liga Privada 10 Aniversario’s bold, luxurious and commanding presence … so let’s get luxuriating, party peoples.”
Production for all Liga Privada cigars has been limited due to the Connecticut River Valley Valley Capa leaves used in the blend. These tobaccos are difficult to secure and has made all the Liga Privada lines, including the Liga Privada 10 Aniversario Connecticut Criollo, limited in nature. Only one Connecticut River Valley farmer cultivates the capa leaf for the Liga Privada 10 Aniversario cigars. This rare hybrid leaf combines the best elements of Broadleaf and Criollo and it is used only for Liga Privada 10 Aniversario cigars.
Since Liga Privada 10 Aniversario Connecticut Criollo’s introduction, Drew Estate released it periodically in small batches. The company has worked with the farmer to plant more of the Connecticut Criollo leaf each year and has steadily aged and stockpiled enough of it to increase Liga Privada Aniversario production to regular status.
