"The cigar checked all the boxes for me. Construction was great, never needed a touchup or relight. I really enjoyed the profile throughout with the hints of dark chocolate and oak. It rounded out really well with the black pepper." -Quinn (quinnpins269)
Drew Estate today announced the shipment of their seasonal Flying Pig vitola. The lines receiving shipments are Liga Privada No. 9 and T52, Undercrown Maduro, Shade and Sun Grown, and Kentucky Fire Cured. The Flying Pig vitola is a very popular vitola made famous by Drew Estate featuring a 100mm x 60 ring gauge and signature pigtail cap. The shape is based on a photograph of an 1895 cigar salesman’s size selection case. It is a very difficult shape to make and is limited to only the most skilled buncheros and rolleras at the factory.
This year, we decided to give you a tour of the show through the pictures we took while we were there. Some are of new items, and some are just things we thought were interesting. We will have a new slideshow for each major manufacturer and one big one for the smaller manufacturers.
