This is my first experience with the Mombacho Liga Maestro. I m am extremely impressed. I smoke 3-4 cigars a day and try to find different smokes. I usually pick a region and buy multiple types from this region. Nicaragua is my current region. Has draw is good with a nice dark grey ash similar to series D #4 For me the cigar start with several minutes of drawing the unlit cigars. This one has a very pleasant taste almost an aged taste. Generally if the unlit draw is pleasing the smoke is good. Very rarely have I enjoyed a smoke that didn t have a pleasant unlit taste. Give it a try you won t be let down.
