For the first time since 2009, a new blend has been added to Drew Estate’s Liga Privada line. The Liga Privada H99 will debut in a single size (Toro, 6 x 52) and uses a corojo-seed leaf grown in the Connecticut River Valley. Inside, the H99 features Mexican San Andrés negro binder over a blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers.
The Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo will be displayed in Drew Estate’s Booth at the IPCPR Convention and Tradeshow held, July 14-17, 2018 in Las Vegas Nevada.
Drew Estate Master Blender Willy Herrera stated, “We started the process of fermenting Connecticut Corojo alongside Connecticut Criollo tobacco at the factory. The factory team and I conjured up numerous blends but ultimately, we selected the blend featuring the Otapan Negro Ultimo Corte capote for its spiciness that pairs with the sweetness of corojo. Our job now is to continue working with the farmers to increase the wrapper yield with each harvest year over year. It’s been long hours preparing for the national release. This leaf is unique.”
The Liga Privada H99 will be available in boxes of 24.
