August 31, 2023 – Drew Estate is about to launch a completely new version of Liga Privada 10, exclusively available at the Intertabac Show in Dortmund, Germany, starting on September 14.
Available only to international markets, Liga Privada 10 Selección de Mercado (6 x 52, Toro) is carefully handcrafted to showcase the bold characteristics of a specially curated Connecticut Criollo capa leaf that’s grown exclusively for Drew Estate by one farmer in the famed Connecticut River Valley. The cigar’s name, “Selección de Mercado,” is Spanish for “Market Selection,” and is inspired by the old practice of selecting wrapper leaves for certain national markets based on color. Drew Estate has chosen only the most beautiful rosado Connecticut Criollo leaves to adorn Selección de Mercado.
Drew Estate Founder and President, Jonathan Drew, enthusiastically expressed, “Selección de Mercado is Drew’s first truly global brand launch. While Liga Privada is known for being bold, dense, hearty, earthy, and robust – a true representation of the Connecticut River Valley – Selección de Mercado is different! It offers a Liga Privada experience that defies expectations. Throughout our creative development, we had international cigar enthusiasts at the forefront of our minds. The Selección de Mercado blend is like saying, ‘Hey, I didn’t think anyone could get a smoke like this in a non-Cuban cigar, but this Liga Privada nails it. It’s astonishing.'”
While maintaining an overall robust character, Selección de Mercado delights connoisseurs with its medium-body. The rosado capa envelops a blend of Mexican capote and tripa tobaccos from Nicaragua and Pennsylvania, resulting in a cigar that’s harmoniously balanced, bold, and sophisticated. Luxurious espresso notes complement the earthy essence of the Connecticut Criollo. Featuring an unfinished foot and the distinctive Cola de Pescado (fishtail) head, Selección de Mercado is crafted by the same skilled buncheros and rolleras responsible for Liga Privada 10 Aniversario. It will be presented in elegant 10-count boxes.
