Friday, September 18, 2020 — Miami, FL- Drew Estate announces today the 2020 release of the limited-edition Liga Privada Unico Serie Pancetta, an exclusive cigar to the two Liga Privada Lounges, Wooden Indian Tobacco Shop in Havertown, PA and Barrister Cigars in Union, NJ. The Pancetta will be available beginning on September 25th, when each of these exclusive retailers will be hosting a special virtual launch event.
The Liga Privada Unico Serie Pancetta is the union of two renowned Liga Privada blends, Liga Privada T52 and the Liga Privada Unico Feral Flying Pig. Featuring a Connecticut Stalk Cut and Cured Habano capa, this cigar starts off with a spice blast and hearty aroma, leading the enthusiast on the complex journey through “LigaLandia.” To add raw might to the blend, a bold Brazilian Mata Fina binder and powerful filler leaves from Nicaragua and Honduras were selected. These binder and filler leaves are the very same that go into the Liga Privada Unico Feral Flying Pig. These majestic tobaccos are skillfully rolled into a 4 ¾” x 50 belicoso, identified by a 2020 Release footband, to make for an unforgettable smoking experience.
From the Wynwood Safehouse, Jonathan Drew President and Founder of Drew Estate adds, “The Pancetta brings us back to the early days of the Liga Privada brandmark, representing the important brick & mortar friendships that deeply contributed to our initial success with the brand. We took the approach of selecting a small group of accounts who we felt believed most highly in the LP project … and slowly, carefully, one-by-one, added accounts that shared our vision for the Connecticut River Valley, as well as a “Stalk Cut – Stalk Cured” process. Barrister Cigars and Wooden Indian were among our first accounts, immediately understanding the vision and showing the love and passion for the brand. The Pancetta is so crazy dope that I firmly suggest listening to the song “Dope Beat” while smoking this banga … btw … that’s Boogie Down Productions for those who don’t know … “who got the dope beat … we got the dope beat!!!””
David Mallow, owner of Barrister Cigars notes, “Since the opening of our Liga Privada Lounge with Jonathan Drew and the National Launch of two sizes of T52, Liga Privada has continually been one of the bestselling lines in our store. Our customers seek us out because of our Liga Privada selection and hard to find DE classics.”
David Mayer, owner of Wooden Indian, adds, “We were one of the first stores in the country to bring in Liga Privada, and we consider it a cornerstone of our humidor.”
The Liga Privada Unico Pancetta is packaged in 24 count boxes with an MSRP of $299.00/box, sold exclusively through Wooden Indian Tobacco Shop and Barrister Cigars. It will be available at a virtual launch event held at 5:00pm on September 25th, consumers can register via Zoom at https://Swisher.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJ0qdeiuqDssGtzf6vm1mUFDl8Xros3baAgu.
