Drew Estate Liga 10 Year of the Pig



The cigar has a nice smooth dark wrapper. The bunch is firm and the cold draw is perfect. Tonight’s beverages are Knob Creek Rye with a Topo Chico side.



This cigar came in a sample box at IPCPR and is longer than the current Pigs (the other six in the sample box are standard length).

The initial flavors are the expected earthy/spicy flavors associated with the Liga line. The retrohale has light pepper. The burn is slightly uneven.


In the first third the flavor profile remains mostly consistent with a touch of cedar added. The retrohale remains excellent with still a light touch of pepper. The burn has evened out.



The Knob Creek Rye is deceptively smooth for a 100 proof whiskey. It blends well with the cigar as long as I drink some Topo Chico between sips.



During the second third a touch of cinnamon is sneaking in and out of the flavor profile. This is an excellent medium bodied cigar. The burn remains mostly even.



Approaching the final inch the flavor profile remains consistent and excellent with great complexity and excellent construction. Overall an excellent cigar. 9.5/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
