Liga Privada H99 debuted in 2018 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Liga Privada. The H99 is an amazing hybrid of corojo seed tobacco grown in the Connecticut River Valley here’s a quote on H99 from the founder of Drew Estate “Following the revolution in Cuba, the Corojo seed took roots in Florida, Nicaragua, and Honduras. Growing Corojo in new climates produced mixed results and much heartache for those who chose to grow it. By creating hybrids of Corojo the leaf was reborn keeping all of its spice and potency intact. Hibrido or Hybridization is a farm-level process utilized for decades to create tobacco that is disease resistant, but also to display the qualities of an unmatched capa.”
Thanks again to our friends at Cigars and Spirits for the honor of being their cigar of the year!
