For the second year in a row, Drew Estate will release a limited edition Chinese Zodiac calendar-inspired cigar as an exclusive release for CoH Cigars, a retailer located in Hong Kong.

The Liga Privada Único Serie Year of the Rabbit is a 4 1/2 x 54 parejo that uses a Connecticut habano stalk-cut wrapper over a Mexican San Andrés binder and fillers from Brazil and Nicaragua. Each cigar has an MSRP of $27.50 and the Year of the Rabbit comes in eight-count boxes.

Drew Estate has not disclosed production numbers for this release.

“Rabbits are auspicious animals in the Chinese Zodiac,” said Jonathan Drew, president and co-founder of Drew Estate, in a press release. “They are quiet, elegant, kind and responsible … they’re gentle peacemakers that are associated with the moon goddess Chang’e, who according to legend had a rabbit for a pet. To honor the Year of the Rabbit, we created a deeply elegant cigar that’s commanding with subtle nuances and layers of smooth, bountiful smoke.”

CoH Cigars, formerly known as Cigars of Habanos, received the Liga Privada Único Serie Year of the Tiger last year. Drew Estate released the Liga Privada Year of the Ox in 2021, though that cigar was an exclusive for International Marketing Exchange Ltd., a distributor.
