Drew Estate is adding a new to its Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo line, a robusto. The new size was announced during their latest Freestyle Live broadcast. The Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo Robusto measures 5.5″ x 54 and officially made its debut as the Pennsylvania Barn Smoker DE25 Exclusive Pre-Party on July 15. This will be a regular production available to qualifying Drew Diplomat Program members starting in September.
The Liga Privada H99 uses a special dark, air-cured hybrid wrapper is a hybrid between Stalk-Cut Habano and Corojo seeds, hence the “H” in H99. This wrapper is grown exclusively for Drew Estate by one farmer in the Connecticut River Valley. The blend also uses a Mexican San Andres Otapan Negro Último Corte binder, and Nicaraguan, Honduran and Pennsylvania Green River One Sucker fillers.
The infamous wrapper leaves of the Connecticut River Valley are clearly the star in every Liga Privada blend. 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. The soil speaks to us and we’ve learned how to listen to it, sincerely. Those H99 savory notes dance across the palate and culminate into a master-crescendo of a finish. Believe me when I say that I’m especially proud of Liga H99 Robusto. It’s dope as hell.
