Liga Privada Unico Serie L40 Lancero

While the introduction of Drew Estate’s Undercrown line was a highlight on the 2011 IPCPR, the other cigar was another entry into Liga Privada’s Unico Serie – the long waitied Liga Privada Unico Serie L40 Lancero.

The Unico Serie concept was introduced with the Liga Privada Unico Serie Dirty Rat.  When that blend was released, Drew Estate President Steve Saka explained the Unico Serie as follows:

At this point, we have made 200 or more Liga Privada blends. There are probably 9 or 10 of them so far that are exceptional, however their blends differ from both the No. 9 and the T52 branded cigars. They’re cigars that work as a particular size, such as a lancero or corona, with the blend being unique to that particular vitola.”

Therefore, the L40 Lancero is the second release into this series and it is as descrbed a 7 x 40 lancero.  Note most lancero vitolas are not a 40 ring gauge and that was a lot of the rationale behind called this the L40. This was done purposely to accommodate the large variety of tobaccos going into a thin cigar.
