The 20-Acre Farm by Drew Estate has arrived at LIT Cigar Lounge STL! Check out what halfwheel had to say about this new release!

https://halfwheel.com/drew-estates-20-acre-farm-arrives-at-stores/402894/
Merry Christmas, thank you Privada Club family for all the love and support. Everything we do is to better the craft. We love you guys. God bless, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays ! Cheers.

A quote from halfwheel "The first cigar is Año Viejo by Kafie, which will be LCA’s monthly limited edition that is usually slated for release on the first Friday of each month. However, it will be getting its release on Monday, Dec. 27, as it designed to be smoked on New Year’s Eve as a way of purging the negativity of the old year to make room for the prosperity and happiness to come in the new year. Its name, which means “old year,” comes from a holiday celebrated predominantly in Columbia, Ecuador and Honduras. "

The Cohiba has arrived LIT Cigar Lounge STL !
halfwheel says about the Spectre….” It’s a 6 1/2 x 52 Toro extra size that uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper that the company says went through “a secondary fermentation process lasting six months” over a Connecticut broadleaf binder. For the fillers, General is relying on a combination of the more labor-intensive tasks it uses in other ci**rs. There are Dominican Piloto Cubano to***cos from the 2014 harvest that are aged in tercios, a way of wrapping a large number of to***cos in royal palm leaves, almost like a large present. In addition, General is using to***cos from Jalapa, Nicaragua that were harvested in 2017 and then aged in Spanish Sherry barrels.

This is the third release for the Cohiba Spectre and like the previous two editions, every cigar is created by the same pair: Ruben Dario Perez Peña bunches every cigar, while Xirolma Cespedes rolls every cigar.”

The release is limited to 500 Boxes of 10, worldwide.
