Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Papas Fritas Petit Corona Cigar Review
This 4.5×44 (including pigtail) stick featured a dark chcolate dry, toothy wrapper with a firm even pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, .5 inch pigtail and a sweet barnyard aroma. This is a mixed filler cigar from the cuts of the Liga Privada line. First light reveals a perfect draw with medium-full bodied smoke giving flavors of a savory sweet deep earth with a long oily finish with a short pepper burst. The first third burns very quickly without any flavor shift, the ash only holding for a very short time, being non-long filler and flaky by nature. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 20 minutes the flavors have slowly taken on a slight cream and bready quality, amping up the savoriness and adding a spice zing through the finish. Ending at 30 minutes where it got very hot, the last little bit shifted to a warm spicy earth leaving a zingy oil through the finish. Thank you very much to viewer David Goncalves for sending this sample in!
