Join Drew Estate for the 4th annual Connecticut Barn Smoker on Saturday August 4th on Foster Farm. Located among the tobacco laden fields of the Connecticut River Valley.

10 years ago, in this very place Drew Estate spared no expense in cultivating the exceptional Broadleaf No.9 and Stalk-Cut Habano T52 leaf required to make Liga Privada a reality. These dense, juicy, thick, lush leaves – which are stunningly beautiful in taste, aroma, and appearance are historically bestowed only upon the farmers’ most important customer each growing season, and is treated as a reward, reinforcing the bond of partnership between farmer and manufacturer.

Translated to English, “Liga Privada” means “private blend.” It is the perfect name, as this cigar was originally crafted not for resale, but for our own personal humidors. Liga Privada No.9, a perfectly balanced blend of flavor & character showcases a highly coveted Connecticut Broadleaf Oscuro wrapper. Liga Privada T52, a more robust blend with notes of black pepper & spice utilizes a rare Stalk-Cut Habano seed wrapper that adds a never-ending finish to an epic smoke. Both Liga’s are a complex marriage of seven distinct aged tobaccos handcrafted by our absolute best torcedors. Each cigar is guaranteed to be flawless in construction, flavor and character…without exception.

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Liga Privada, each Connecticut Barn Smoker attendee will receive an exclusive piece of Liga Privada swag and there will be a one of a kind Liga Privada raffle item exclusive to the event.
