The Drew Estate Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo made its first appearance at IPCPR in 2018. Since then, it has been one of the more hard to find and sought after cigars on the market. At the time, we gave it an impressive 94 in our blind review. Now, this cigar will be regular production at qualifying Drew Diplomat Program participants.

"As noted in my tasting notes, each flavor was just as I expected . Dark chocolate and coffee with a slight earthiness all creating a notable smoking experience . I'd easily give this a 95. Great cigar that is box worthy for sure. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
To be honest this cigar reminded me a lot of the All Out Kings, which is made at Drew Estate using the same Habano wrapper as T-52. It is very much like a mild version of the T-52. The final third was just a bit sour, but not a huge turnoff and I think this will improve with time. I really enjoyed this smoke and it is quite a departure from previous Liga Privada releases in its strength, yet it retains the complexity. I am curious to see how these age, definitely get a hold of some of these if you can.
