Drew Estate is adding a new vitola to its Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo portfolio.
The Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo Robusto will debut at the Pennsylvania Barn Smoker DE25 pre-party on July 15 and will be available as a regular allocation to qualifying Drew Diplomat Program members beginning in September.
The Liga Privada H99 (“H” stands for hybrid) showcases a dark, air-cured hybrid capa derived from the marriage between Stalk-Cut Habano and Corojo seeds. Grown exclusively for Drew Estate by a farmer in the Connecticut River Valley, the H99 capa combines elements of the Habano and Corojo seed varieties.
Available in 24-count boxes, Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo Robusto cigars will retail at $358.80/box or $14.95/cigar.
“The infamous wrapper leaves of the Connecticut River Valley are clearly the star in every Liga Privada blend,” Drew Estate Founder and President, Jonathan Drew, said in a press release. “This is especially true of Liga H99. This sexy beast expresses the intricacies of the terroir from the farm where H99 Connecticut Corojo is grown. Believe me when I say that I’m especially proud of Liga H99 Robusto. It’s dope as hell.”
