Liga Privada T52 Toro
Liga Privada T52 cigars are luxurious, full-bodied smokes designed for cigar smokers who appreciate robust, complex cigars. The core is blended with Nicaraguan, Dominican and Honduran longfillers bound by a zesty Brazilian leaf. But the piece de resistance is the U.S.-grown stalk cut Habano-seed oscuro wrapper. The result is a leaf that's more intense in flavor and richer in oils. The smoke teems with creamy flavors of wood, espresso, peppery spices and sweet tobacco. A must-smoke!
The guys reportedly smoke a handful of these cigars in a day. Frankly, I can't see how they do so. These are some of the richest cigars I've ever smoked. I enjoy a good, strong cigar (El Cobre for breakfast, anyone?), but these are not hammer-you-over-the head strong. They have plenty of body, but it's the incredible richness that limits me. I don't know if it's the stalk-curing, where the leaves are left to cure on the stalk, supposedly continuing to draw from the stalk while curing, the leaf they use, or the curing methods, but these are the cigar equivalent of a flourless chocolate cake.
Now here is a superior cigar, I first tried it at a Liga Privida tasting and after learning of the time and care put into each one I was sold, but it wasn't untll smoking it that I truly realized they were in a class of there own. If you haven't tried the Liga Privada No. 9 I would highly recommend you try that first they are similar. But if you like No. 9 then the T52 will not disappoint you. They are the elite of Liga Privada.
