Quick Smoke: Liga Privada Único Serie L40

28 Jan 2012

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

This lancero is a relatively new and limited cigar from the Liga Privada Único Serie, which is the home of experimental, one-off cigars from Drew Estate including the Dirty Rat and Feral Flying Pig. The L40 (7 x 40) uses a Connecticut stalk-cut Habano wrapper, Brazilian Mata Fina binder, and Nicaraguan filler. It tastes of earth, dark chocolate, oak, and coffee. It’s medium-bodied and not nearly as spicy or interesting as the Dirty Rat. This is a good smoke, but at $13 each, I prefer almost every other Liga Privada cigar I’ve had.

Verdict = Hold.

    Just smoked a Pig. Not that impressed & definitely not worth the $16. I like the LIGA 9's but favor the T52.

    I'm with Heavy. I just smoked a No. 9 Robusto. It had serious burn issues and the flavor wasn't worth the $12 I paid for it. Don't believe the hype.
