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.
The Liga Privada No. 9 “Pork Beli” features a Connecticut River Valley Broadleaf Wrapper, a Plantation Grown Brazilian Mata Fina Binder, with Filler from Honduras and Nicaragua. Presented in a 120mm x 50 Belicoso in a 10 Count Soft Pack. The first 100 cigars will be available for purchase at Hyde Park Cigars with Jonathan Drew on August 27th from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Limited to one cigar per person, while supplies last. The Liga Privada No. 9 Pork Beli will be formally released this fall.

The cigars will be displayed in Drew Estate’s booth (Booth #2403) at the IPCPR Convention and Tradeshow held July 24 – 28, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Where do I start. The flavors of cedars and spices were very enjoyable. The tingle left on the palate and tongue were very enjoyable. The smoke enticed you to want more. I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar. I would pair this with a dark beer or a red wine. I did not want it to end. For the length, I was a bit surprised at the time it took to smoke it. I thought it would have been longer. Very enjoyable and I would recommend this to my friends.” –Eric (smalls29)
