Liga Privada T52 Robusto by Drew Estate Cigars

COVID-19 Day 489
 Connecticut Broadleaf, Connecticut River Valley, Drew Estate, Liga Privada T52 Robusto, Nick Melillo, Stalk Cut, Steve Saka As you, the whole world, and me knows, this Liga Privada T52 by Drew Estate Cigars is an outstanding and complex cigar.

Smoky earthy-sweet cocoa with a touch of molasses come to me delivered in volumes of abundant smoke through a perfect draw as black pepper tobacco flavors coat my tongue and with a pepper spice in the retrohale to boot! This cigar is smoky and outstanding!

This specimen has been incubating in the TupperDor since 2018 and it’s time to smoke it!

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 254:
 Connecticut Broadleaf, Connecticut River Valley, Drew Estate, Liga Privada T52 Robusto, Nick Melillo, Stalk Cut, Steve Saka Holy Cow Batman, the last time I smoked this outstanding cigar in the Liga Privada T52 Robusto by Drew Estate Cigars was pre-COVID-19 Pandemic!

Truth be told, one of the reasons I chose this Liga Privada T52 was because I wanted to compare it to the recently enjoyed Liga Privada No. 9 and that I haven’t smoked this T52 in almost a year… I can’t believe it!

Of course, I have my favorite between the two… What say you?

#FingerBurner What more can I say

If you haven’t tried one of these fantastic cigars — Go get one!

It appears that the Liga Privada T52 is what the doctor ordered to mend and make up for my cigar-disappointments this month. I can always count on this cigar to get me to my happy place.

It’s odd, this is my third or fourth T42 and I’ve never gotten the pepper-spice that others have spoken about, instead, I get a steady mouthful of chewy earthy leathery smoke that coats my mouth. #SakamotoHappy.

Halfway through the pepper is accumulating on my tongue providing a long-lasting finish. The char line is impeccable and I’m cruising all the way to the e-hour end with this glorious cigar.

Stay Smokey
Stay Chill

As you and the whole world know, this is an outstanding cigar.

I had smoked my first Liga Privada No. 9 the day before, so I just had to try this in comparison. Now, this isn’t my first nor my last Liga Privada T52 and I’m a huge fan of this cigar and would highly recommend a box purchase as soon as you can save up enough money.

“Je ne sais quoi” No. 9 vs T52

Keep in mind that I’ve only had one sample of the Liga Privada No. 9 so my sample size is very small, but there’s something about the Liga Privada T52 that is so smooth and flavorful without the “bite” or maybe it was the spice I’m not missing in the T52.

Either way, this cigar is here to stay
And, I can’t wait to try some other sizes of the Liga Privada No. 9.
