Undercrown Flying Pigs have begun arriving at retailers in recent days as Drew Estate brings a highly sought-after international release stateside.
The Undercrown Flying Pig was originally created as a limited edition release for the Netherlands in June 2012, but in mid-July the company announced that it would be made available to accounts who currently carry Liga Privada. The 4 1/8 x 60 double perfecto was supposed to be on display at the 2014 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show, and in fact was for a time before being stolen sometime on day one.
The cigar comes in 12-count boxes and with a single-stick MSRP of $12, before taxes. While it’s a regular production cigar, only one pair makes it, limiting the amount that can be produced.
Drew Estate also unveiled the MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Flying Pig at the trade show, which shares the price and box count as the Undercrown version, and is equally as limited due to being made by just one pair. It is being offered to all Drew Estate accounts, however, increasing the number of stores that will have access to it when it begins shipping, which is expected to be sometime this month.
