One of the newest edition to the Tatuaje line up of cigars is the Escasos,which means rare. This a cigar that has been in the works for the better part of a decade.

The Liga Privada T52 has proven itself over the last decade to be worthy of the Liga Privada name.The cigar is ideal for Liga fans looking for a slightly bolder and fuller bodied smoking experience. The cigar was originally blended, as a personal blend for Drew Estates former president Steve Saka. The T52 features a variety of Nicaraguan tobaccos. The Habano wrapper used on the Liga Privada T52 is stalk-cut. that the stalk-cutting process adds a depth of flavor to the finished leaf not found in traditionally primed tobacco.The cigar provides ample notes of cedar, earth and sweetness. All of these rich flavors are balanced nicely by notes of pepper, that are especially present on the retrohale. As the weather begins to cool here in New England many cigar smokers are reaching into their humidor for smaller sizes. Luckily for us Drew Estates has added a var
