In commemoration of the Liga Privada’s 10th anniversary, Drew Estate is set to release the first new size (not counting 2017’s 4″ x 32 tins) to the Liga Privada No. 9 collection since the full lineup debuted in 2008.

The cigars will launch alongside Cigar International’s 15th annual CIGARfest, held from May 3rd through the 6th, being available exclusively as a pre-release sale at the Cigars International Super-Store and at the festival as well. As this is being pitched as a pre-release offering, the cigars are expected to become more widely available later in the year; presumably in July, during the annual IPCPR trade show.

10 years ago, Drew Estate created ‘Liga Privada’ the hearty, Broadleaf bully that changed the cigar world forever. Highly coveted, this rare cover leaf tobacco is historically treated as a reward to a select few industry players, reinforcing the bond of partnership between farmer and manufacturer. Thank you for the LP Fellowship of the past ten years, and for contributing to the #De4L mosaic that binds us together and enables The Rebirth of Cigars to live on and Flourish.Jonathan Drew, president and co-founder

Drew Estate Liga Privada No. 9 Corona Viva cigar

The cigars borrow the Corona Viva name from Liga’s lower-tier sibling, Undercrown, which debuted the limited Corona ¡Viva! in 2012 (later using a similar blend for the Undercrown Dogma). Perhaps most noteworthy, Liga Privada No. 9 Corona Viva will carry over the Undercrown’s strategy of amping up the strength of the blend, making for the first disclosed blend tweak to a Liga Privada No. 9 cigar.

Similar in concept to the Undercrown Corona Viva, released in 2012, the No. 9 Corona Viva features the core blend with increased Ligero for a fuller and stronger taste profile.

Despite the name and stronger blending style of the Undercrown Corona ¡Viva!, the new Liga Privada No. 9 Corona Viva will not share identical dimensions, arriving in a slightly-longer 6″ x 46 vitola (compared to 5⅝” x 46 for the Undercrown). The cigars are priced at $290 per box of 24 cigars (MSRP).
