    Liga Privada No. 9 - a partial review!




    NOTE: Photo is of another smoke, the one I took of this particular cigar somehow got deleted.


    Construction:
    Beautiful. Firm, but not hard; very dark, uniform coloring; slightly toothy.

    Prelight draw:
    Earthy, like what you'd imagine rich soil to smell like, with a bit of cocoa and black pepper

    First Third:
    Initially, pepper and spice and everything nice! Tons of smoke, which is one of the things I love most about Liga Privadas. About 1/4 of an inch in, the spice dials down, and dark, rich, earthy tobacco takes over. The flavor is cool, but rich. This is the biggest difference between the No.9 and the T-52, in my opinion: The T-52 has a very warm characteristic to it, the No.9 is cool as a cucumber. Dark chocolate and leather and cedar take turns at the front with the rich, earthy tobacco as the stick warms up a bit. After a few more minutes, the dark chocolate takes over. Rick, decadent dark chocolate. The burn so far has been razor sharp!

    Second Third:
    Almost no black pepper is left, but that lovely oily spice is lingering on the finish. Like when you eat a hot pepper, and lick your lips... it has that effect. I love it. The cedar is more prominent now, the chocolate has taken a bit of a backseat. Cedar and wood intermingle with rich tobacco, and dark cocoa remains in the background. Burn remains razor sharp, ashing about every inch or so. I can feel the nicotine beginning to kick in at this point. The dark chocolate becomes more of a cocoa, and then eventually morphs into a rich, creamy chocolate. The smoke output continues to be stellar.

    Final Third:
    I'll never know how the final third if this particular No.9 would have smoked, as I got interrupted by one of the kids waking up, and the cigar was long done when I finally got back to it. But I can tell you that of the number I've smoked before, all were nubbed!

    Bruce, had it been any longer, or had it still been even somewhat warm when I came back, I probably would have too! But that close to the end, and that cold and dead, and it just seemed like I might ruin the experience with a relight, so I let it be.

    Great Review, I love this stick. I nubbed one so short the other day the strength got to me, but it was too tasty to put it down.
