In a Liga of its own.
The new Liga Privada T52 is the highly anticipated follow up to the coveted Liga Privada No. 9 by Drew Estate. The T52 employs a unique stalk-cut Sungrown Habano wrapper overtop a signature recipe of seven different varieties of tobacco. On the outside, the stalk-cut wrapper is exquisite....dark, reddish-brown and glistening with oils. After rolling T52 is aged one full year, resulting in a brilliant array of complex nuances. Bold, distinct and loaded with notes of leather, earth, spices and black pepper, T52 is robust and satisfying. Drew Estate Liga Privada T52 received a well-deserved 92-rating noting: "A dark, oily robusto packed with full-bodied tobacco, though it burns and draws evenly. The smoke is bold with cedar and leather while touches of orange peel and acidity come through on the palate."NOTE: Just like Liga Privada No. 9, only the best rollers are used to ensure a perfectly constructed, utterly consistent product. T52 production is extremely limited.
I have not had the opportunity to try the #9, but the T52 is perhaps the best cigar I have ever smoked. Burned a gift card on a 5 pack of these and they were awesome smokes...wish I had bought more while they were available.
My favorite cigar. Full-bodied, but not overwhelmingly strong, smooth draw, nice burn and pretty hard to come by. Yeah, my favorite cigar.
Just screwed my expectations for 90% of the cigars I'll ever smoke again. Would cheerfully trade everything else I have for more of these. The wrapper shattered for the first third which didn't seem to cause any burn or draw problems. Wish it would have been 3" longer(belicoso). Flavors are incredible and so well balanced it is difficult to put a name to any of them. Creamy!
This cigar is hands down the best tasting cigar I have smoked. It burned smooth and even throughout, minus one problem. I had a tunneling issue in the 2nd third. I always throw out a bad burner. Not this one, it was too good. Cut and fired it up again and it still tasted amazing. I am hoping this was a defective stick. I will be buying more for sure! I'm not a fan of Drew Estate, but hats off to you on this one.
I've smoked about a dozen Liga Privada #9s and Papas Fritas and I never saw what the hype was all about. I find them one-dimensional and have had better cigars at 1/3 of the price. But hey, smoke what you like, like what you smoke. Having said that, I had my first T52 the other day and was blown away. It was just an exceptional cigar in every aspect and I will definitely be getting more of them.
Wow! I didn't think the Liga Privada #9 could be equaled, but this cigar is even better! I love the smoothness of this cigar and the flavor is such there is no aftertaste. How does that happen? I don't have nasty cigar breath later with this cigar, plus its flavor is so uniquely satisfying that I will always buy a pack of these when I buy a pack of #9's!!
This was a fantastic smoke with excellent flavor. I was lucky enough to find a 5 pack and split with a friend. This was a bad choice as I wished I kept all of them or bought more. These were the richest full bodied smoke with no harshness to be found, and quite possibly the best smoke of my life. They did not come dried out after a week of travel and sitting in my PO Box so it was fortunate. I will order from here again as the quality and service is outstanding.
Aside from the Ashton VSG and the liga privada T9 the T52are the only cigars I am willing to pay full price. I've never purchased a box, but I'm constantly buying them in sets of 3 and 4 right now I would say these two are the best in today's market if you love cigars you owe it to yourself to try these both blends.
I burnt the Double Corona two days ago and I am still thinking about it. The flavors are leathery and nutty. It starts out mild and slowly brings you to that delicious warmth and strenth you desire after a long day of work. The construction and burn was top notch. The only problem is that these will be $20 a stick when everyone finds out about them. Mmmmmmm... I'm thinking about it again.
Purchased a Sampler from CI; I am not a big fan of Drew Estate Flavor cigars, but this is the best smoke on the Market. The T52 has blown me away and I will definitely keep this in my rotation.
Well, in my search for my 5 great cigars I have found number 2 in the T52. Fantastic flavors and the perfect blend for my tastebuds. Very good Drew Estates.
This beautiful toro sports a phenominal dark brown-reddish wrapper that is super oily and delicious. There's some peppery spice upon lighting that quickly mellows out about an inch through the cigar. The flavors are coffee and dark chocolate -- it's full flavored and complex without giving you a nicotine rush to the head. This cigar drew and bunred perfectly and created a ton of thick smoke. One of the very best new cigars I have tasted in years. I smoked one and am about to buy a box.
First Impression: WOW, what a gorgeous, extremely toothy and oily wrapper w/ perfect construction. I smoked the Toro size and it lasted me over three hours, I really enjoyed every minute of it. It's medium to full, little spice, but overall really smooth smoke w/ an ample amount of flavors and complexity. The stick is heft and dense, but don't let it fool you! The draw is great and you get a nice amount of smoke from each puff. I'm not a big Drew Estate fan by ANY means, but this one is special.
Amazing! My favorite smoke!
