The 2021 edition of Drew Estate’s Liga Privada Unico Serie Pancetta will arrive October 1 at Wooden Indian Tobacco Shop in Havertown, Pennsylvania, and Barrister Cigars in Union, New Jersey.
The 4.75 x 50 Liga Privada Unico Serie Pancetta features the same Connecticut Stalk-Cut and Stalk-Cured Habano capa that wraps the Liga Privada T52 and utilizes the same Brazilian Mata Fina capote and Nicaraguan and Honduran tripa leaves that are used for the Liga Privada Unico Serie Feral Flying Pig. This year’s edition of Liga Privada Unico Serie Pancetta features a second band on the foot that identifies it as an exclusive release for 2021.
The Liga Privada Unico Pancetta comes in 24-count boxes with a retail price of $299/box and $12.46/cigar. It will be sold exclusively at Wooden Indian Tobacco Shop and Barrister Cigars. The cigars can be ordered from Wooden Indian Tobacco Shop via its website at woodenindiantobacco.com; or they may be purchased from Barrister Cigars at 908-964-3000.
“Pancetta is the perfect marriage of the best Liga Privada has to offer,” Barrister Cigars’ owner, David Mallow, said in a statement. “It’s the Feral Flying Pig blend with a T52 wrapper in a Short Belicoso size. The boldness of the Feral Flying Pig filler and binder paired with the tastiness of the Stalk-Cut and Stalk-Cured Habano wrapper really shines in the Short Belicoso format.”
From Sag Harbor, N.Y., Drew Estate’s Founder and President, Jonathan Drew, says, “Two of the first retailers to believe in our vision for Liga Privada and support our story of Stalk-Cut and Stalk-Cured tobaccos from the Connecticut River Valley were our close friends at Wooden Indian and Barrister. Their love and passion for Liga Privada is matched only by the deep, rich, commanding and authoritative presence of this bangin’ cigar.”
“We are proud to bring you the Liga Privada Pancetta for the third annual release,” David Mayer, the owner of Wooden Indian Tobacco Shop, shares. “Thank you to Drew Estate for making this possible and the community for supporting us through this difficult year and a half. #DE4L.”
