Exquisitely blended using 7 different tobaccos from 7 different farms, it is handcrafted only by the factory's absolute best torcedors. Rich and full-bodied without being harsh, they're best described in one word: satisfying.
I never cared for the Drew Estate line of cigars, but they hit a homerun with this stick. From its appearance to its start to finish burn, it is by far the finest non-Cuban on the market. The only problem is that it is too pricey to be an everyday cigar.
This is a meaty full bodied smoke that is rich and complex minus the harsh bite. The aroma is wonderful and immediately put a smile on my face; I found a gem. This is everything you would expect from well aged tobacco. Construction is superb. In the hand it feels firm and heavy as if it's rolled tight but surprisingly, the draw was perfect. All I can say is "WOW"!
on my second box.... a bit expensive, wish they would get the smaller version this takes a while to smoke and needs attention... tends to go out.... only cigar better is Cuban Monticresto A's...
Liga Privada #9 is a blend that has cigar lovers rushing to get more, myself included. There is a highly negative review of this cigar on Famous. I feel that particular reviewer may have put out his cigar before he got to the good stuff.The double corona is incredibly boring, hard to keep lit, and mild to a fault for the first several inches of the smoke. By the mid point, about 4 inches in, it starts giving up all the flavor and performance that makes this one of the best selling and sought after sticks on the market. In my experience, it takes some patience with this size to get to the good stuff, but it is worth the wait.The belicoso and robusto sizes give all the good stuff right up front and are intense throughout. They’re like hard good sex. The double corona is like great sex after 20 minutes of obligatory foreplay.I guess it boils down to a matter of what you are in the mood for. The body and flavor of liga #9s are unmatched. I’m a huge fan of this blend in robusto and belicoso size, and one of the many trying to get them. If I had this one to smoke again, I probably would have clipped off the first 3 inches of the cigar to get to the orgasmic part right away. I’m impatient, and don’t like to spend time nurturing the burn.As far as flavor, you can’t find anything better when this cigar hits the sweet spot. It’s kind of beyond words. I can say “lightly sweet”, “oaky cedary”, “nutmeg faint pepper”, but none of those descriptions really do this justice. It is a must smoke cigar; a unique experience that no cigar smoker should pass on if they get the chance.The shorter sizes are better in my opinion, but if you can get ahold of any of them, grab them while you can.
