One of Drew Estate’s most popular vitolas, the Flying Pig is now shipping in their semi-annual release across the company’s brands. The Flying Pig vitola is a perfecto that measures 4″ x 60 and has a pigtail cap.
The size is based on a photograph in an 1895 cigar salesman’s size selection catalog. The Flying Pig vitola’s unique size and signature pigtail requires specialized training for buncheros and rolleras at La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate in Estelí, Nicaragua. Only a few of La Gran Fabrica’s employees are certified to make the cigars, limiting Flying Pigs to two annual seasonal releases in the Spring and the Fall. The lines with Flying Pig vitolas available are: Kentucky Fire Cured, Undercrown Maduro, Undercrown Shade and Undercrown Sun Grown, Liga Privada No. 9 and Liga Privada T52.
Flying Pigs are distinctly Drew Estate. There are very few things in life more satisfying than cracking a fresh box of Drew Estate’s piggies and being hit with that aroma and the visuals. You can’t help but immediately, desperately, spark one up. Ya’ll know it’s the truth!!!
