What can I say? I have seen this cigar before, but never got around to lighting one up. It is beautiful on the outside with a super dark and toothy wrapper, and three silver bands. The ash is dark and the draw is easy. The smoke is thick and very very similar in taste to the Liga Privada. Dark chocolate and some dusty earth notes are immidiately noticeable and carry through the cigar with barely any spice. A leathery espresso overtone eventually complements the chocolate and even a few citrus notes come into play. It’s a great cigar. Full flavored, full bodied, medium in strength. Plus, if you’re a Ligero fan, you’re in luck, because that’s all the tobacco in the filler.
