Drew Estate announces the Liga Privada Unico Serie Pancetta, a cigar exclusive to the two Liga Privada Lounges, Wooden Indian Tobacco Shop in Havertown, Pennsylvania, and Barrister Cigars in Union, New Jersey.
The Pancetta is a 4.75 x 50 belicoso featuring a Connecticut Stalk Cut and Cured Habano capa, with Brazilian Mata Fina binder and filler from Nicaragua and Honduras. It is a union of two Liga Privada blends, Liga Privada T52 and the Liga Privada Unico Feral Flying Pig.
It is packaged in a 24-count box ($299).
“Pancetta brings us back to the early days of the Liga Privada brandmark, representing the important brick-and-mortar friendships that deeply contributed to our initial success with the Liga Privada brand,” Jonathan Drew, president and founder of Drew Estate, said in a press release. “In total, we selected 52 Tobacconists throughout the USA, who we felt believed most highly in the LP project, and slowly, carefully, one-by-one, added accounts that shared our vision for the Connecticut River Valley, as well as a ‘Stalk Cut – Stalk Cured’ process. Barrister Cigars and Wooden Indian were among our first accounts, immediately understanding the vision and showing the love and passion for the brand.”
