Cigar News: Drew Estate to Ship 2022 Flying Pigs

Drew Estate has announced it is shipping its signature limited production Flying Pig size for six of its brands. The Flying Pigs being shipped include the Liga Privada No. 9, Liga Privada T52, Undercrown (Maduro), Undercrown Shade, and Undercrown Sun Grown blends as well as the return of the Kentucky Fire Cured Flying Pig.

The Flying Pig is a 3 15/16 x 60 (100mm x 60) ring gauge perfecto that is based off an 1895 cigar salesman’s size selection stake. Drew Estate describes it as one of the most difficult cigars Draw Estate has made as it requires specialized training by the buncheros and rollers at the La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate facility in Estelí, Nicaragua.

In a press release announcing the 2022 batch, Drew Estate President and co-Founder Jonathan Drew, said, “Flying Pigs are distinctly Drew Estate. “There are very few things in life more satisfying than cracking a fresh box of Drew Estate’s piggies and being hit with that aroma and the visuals. You can’t help but immediately, desperately, spark one up. Ya’ll know it’s the truth!!!”
