Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada H99 Toro

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada H99 Toro

I enjoyed the Drew Estate Liga Privada H99 Toro because of the flavors delivered, but I don't think that this is a cigar for a lot of smokers. This is more fruity and lighter. When you think of wines that are very berry heavy or jammy, Malbec comes to mind, but this is more of a very strawberry Rosé. I know that sounds crazy, but that is the best way for me to describe the smoking experience. Funky smoke.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate BOTL Brown Label 2020 Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate BOTL Brown Label 2020 Lancero

The Drew Estate BOTL Brown Label 2020 Lancero delivered some consistently good flavors through the first and second third, missing out only slightly in the last third with some imbalance. I smoked two for review, and I would happily return to another, as I think Drew Estate has done well with the BOTL series over the years.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown 10 Toro

The Drew Estate Undercrown 10 Toro was a good cigar. It was a little one dimensional, and a little heavy on the earth, but there were some flavors that popped out throughout. I would have liked for a stronger finish, and I think that would have made a difference in the cigar. I am interested in smoking the blend in a smaller vitola offering, and really seeing how it smokes all around.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Year of the Ox 2021

Relatively speaking for a Connecticut broadleaf, the Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Year of the Ox 2021 was on the lighter side. It didn't quite have the highly earthy, viscous and chocolate overlays. Instead, it smoked lighter, especially in terms of earthiness and strength. To me, there's nothing wrong with that and it's a good showing, especially for the Chinese market. A cigar well made to celebrate the Year of the Ox.

Team Cigar Review: Tabak Especial Negra Lonsdale

Team Cigar Review: Tabak Especial Negra Lonsdale

The Tabak Especial Negra Lonsdale was really quite basic and I didn't get much more than a light creamy coffee in the first half to really make me think this was part of the Tabak line. I'm not sure if the infusion was light on this sample or just very light on this vitola, but it just didn't hit me the way past Tabak's have.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Bauhaus

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Bauhaus

The Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Bauhaus is a nice addition to the Unico Serie and for fans of the series, would definitely be worth trying to acquire some from the European market if you can track them down. I'd have no problem smoking more of these, likely in the evening after a nice meal and I could see it pairing well with a nice brown spirit of your choosing.
