Similar in concept to the Undercrown Corona Viva, released in 2012, the No. 9 Corona Viva features the core blend with increased Ligero for a fuller and stronger taste profile.
The Liga Privada No. 9 Corona Viva is the first new release to the core sizes of Liga Privada since its original launch in 2008. The 152mm x 46mm vitola will be packaged in 24-count boxes with an MSRP of $290 per box and a special release letter from Jonathan Drew, Founder & President of Drew Estate, commemorating the launch.
From the Wynwood Safehouse in Miami, Florida Jonathan Drew noted,
“10 years ago, Drew Estate created ‘Liga Privada’ the hearty, Broadleaf bully that changed the cigar world forever. Highly coveted, this rare cover leaf tobacco is historically treated as a reward to a select few industry players, reinforcing the bond of partnership between farmer and manufacturer. Thank you for the LP Fellowship of the past ten years, and for contributing to the #De4L mosaic that binds us together and enables The Rebirth of Cigars to live on and Flourish.”
The Corona Viva will be available for the in-store Pre-release launch on Thursday, May 3rd at Cigars International Hamburg Super-Store in limited quantities. Boxes will also be available for sale at CIGARfest in limited quantities.
