BACKGROUND: In 2009, Drew Estate introduced the Liga Privada No. 9 Flying Pig. Former CEO Steve Saka picked the shape from a photograph of an 1895 cigar salesman’s size-selection case. There have been 5 different iterations of the flying pig: Liga No 9 Flying Pig, Liga T52 Flying Pig, MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Flying Pig, Undercrown Flying Pig and Liga Unico Serie Feral Flying Pig.
Unlike the No. 9 and T52 Flying Pigs, which were limited to 2,050 boxes of 12 and 3,000 boxes of 12, respectively, there were plenty of Feral Flying Pigs to go around. The initial launch saw 4,500 boxes of 10 of the Feral’s released.
This week’s featured stogie is the 5.4 inch by 60 ring gauge Unico Serie Feral Flying Pig Perfecto.
