October 24, 2023Drawing inspiration from the traditional Italian roasted pork dish, known for its rich layers and savory seasonings, this cigar is meticulously crafted to evoke a similar complexity in its flavor profile. Liga Privada Porchetta is exclusively available at the distinguished Casa de Montecristo brick-and-mortar locations.
Jonathan Drew, Founder and President of Drew Estate, expressing his excitement about the new global offices of Drew Estate, proclaims, "Porchetta is a meaty, in-your-face, turbulent journey of flavor and aroma. It’s hard-hitting, yet smooth and meat-lovin-calculated at the very same time … kinda like a Larry Holmes jab to the dome … it’s not meant to knock you out. But damn, that was the thing about Holmes in his heyday … he could literally knock you out with a couple of jabs. Nobody should get knocked out with a jab, really. This Porchetta is like a miniature Larry Holmes. My dad was a huge Larry Holmes fan, for the record.”
Showcasing an impeccable Connecticut River Valley Stalk Cut & CuredHabano wrapper that has undergone a thorough three-yearFermentation, the Liga Privada Unico Porchetta stands as a symbol ofDrew Estate's dedication to breaking boundaries with heavy-leaf American tobaccos.
