Drew Estate Liga Privada 10 Year Aniversario

During IPCPR 2018, Drew Estate released two new Liga Privada cigars called the H99 and the 10 Year Aniversario as samples to retailers and media members that went to the show.  They weren’t ready for full distribution yet, but the Liga Privada 10 Year Aniversario was finally released to retailers this year through a lottery method that is broadcast on Facebook Live.  Drew Estate had special tobacco grown for the wrapper leaf that is only available for them to use …

BEN’S WEEK IN SMOKE – NO. 20

I’ve been slacking quite a bit with posting these Week in Smoke.  It’s been a busy time as I’ve somehow become my son’s soccer coach so my cigar time has been shortened quite a bit. I have managed to get a few cigars in here and there so let’s take a look at what I’ve managed to get in during the week.
