Drew Estate’s annual limited-edition release of Liga Privada Unico UF4 will premiere at Casa de Montecristo’s Halloween Party in Countryside, Illinois, on Oct. 29 at 6 p.m. CST, as it has since 2010, with the event hosted virtually by Drew Estate Founder and President Jonathan Drew.
The 6 x 52 UF4 uses a Connecticut Habano wrapper, Brazilian binder and Nicaraguan and Honduran filler tobaccos. Drew explains the origin of the annual trot out event in Illinois.
“I was in Chicago visiting the fellas, Mike and Sam at Casa, and asked them for their opinion on this 6 x 52 berserker while we sat at the lounge downstairs,” Drew said in a press release. “They were like, ‘Yo, JD, this is blah blah blah,’ acting in all sorts of ways, all animated and shit. I like those dudes a lot and I wanted to make ‘em happy. Turns out, our decision was a nightmare for the first few years … as we had to change the name various times from JD4 to MF4 and finally to UF4. The stick is now a classic, and it’s definitely one of our proudest commemoratives.”
The 2021 limited-edition Liga Privada Unico UF4 will be sold in 10-count wooden boxes. Each individual cigar will be wrapped in cedar and will feature a ribbon around the foot. The event at Montecristo’s store will include dinner, a UF4 cigar, deals and swag. Those dressed in a costume will be eligible for an additional deal and will be eligible for further prizes. Tickets to the event cost $50.
Event tickets can be bought at casademontecristochicago.com. The Liga Privada Unico UF4 cigars can be purchased on Casa de Montecristo’s e-commerce site at www.cdmcigars.com.
