Drew Estates Liga Privada T52 Flying Pig

One of the most interesting cigars I’ve ever received at IPCPR was the Liga Privada No. 9 Flying Pig from Drew Estates. It was this short, fat, almost jet black perfecto that was hard as a rock. My friend Tom and I both got samples and I put mine away to try later. Tom lit his up almost immediately and, to be honest, we weren’t expecting much as it was hard as a rock. After a few puffs, Tom almost fell over. Tom raved and raved about how good the cigar was. Later, I tried mine and I totally agree. The burn and flavor were fantastic. You can see my review here. The other Liga Privada line is the T52 ,which uses stalk cut sungrown habano leaf as its wrapper, is actually my preferred Liga. The T52 line just has more of the flavors I enjoy in a cigar, so when I heard that they were releasing a Flying Pig in the T52, I knew I had to have it. I was able to finally acquire some from Buckhead Cigars at a great price. So, how does this Flying Pig compare to the No. 9? It the cigar worth all the commotion? Watch the video and find out.

Great review Ben, I smoked T52 Flying Pig a week ago. It was good. I had a ligth buzz near the end. I have not had No.9 Flying Pig. They are hard to find The Flying Pig No. 9 and T52 cigars.

So I guess my comment got deleted with the update.

I too love the T52 and would think that it would make a great flying pig. I think it’s also be great if they made a thinner ring gauge T52 to let that stalk cut habano really shine.

Merry Christmas Ben!

Great review of a fantastic cigar.

I actually like this cigar better than the original.

But I’ve got to ask if anyone else is picking up a buttery popcorn flavor in this thing? It’s driving me wild!

Thanks again and keep up the good work.

I had my first of these last week. It’s been a while since I liked a cigar that much my first time burning it … in fact, the last time it was the Padron 40th.

The T-52 has become my #1 regular production blend when you factor in price (edging out the aforementioned Padron 40th), and I think the Flying Pig … with a bit of age … will prove to be the best vitola in the line. I need to get some more before they’re gone I think, lol.
