Liga Privada, meaning "private blend" in Spanish, was originally produced only for Steve Saka, president of Drew Estate. The cigars are exceptionally difficult to roll, and consist of a stalk-cut Connecticut Habano wrapper, Brazilian Mata Fina binder, and a filler blend containing five different tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua. Imagine trying to cram seven different tobaccos into a slim, 5x44 Corona size--it's no wonder Dirty Rat is an extremely limited release. The result, though, is a powerful, complex stogie with aromas of cedar and pepper, along with floral undertones. These are top shelf smokes that are well worthy of their labor-intensive rolling and painstaking blending--get yours before we jump the gun and smoke them all!
By far my favorite cigar. My humidor is stocked with these stogies at all times!

You just can’t go wrong with Liga Privada for full smoke.
