This is my first cigar review so bare with me!
Liga Privada UF-13
Received this cigar from DE/LP after some of my Feral Flying Pigs were damaged in shipping. After receiving these I learned they are a pretty limited.
-Time in humidor: 5 weeks
-Humidor conditions: 63-64% RH, 68 degrees
-dry boxed: 12 hours at 58% RH
Very good looking cigar. Very few veins, no soft spots, nice oily wrapper. Wrapper is lighter in color than all of the Liga's I've smoked. All and all what you expect from a higher end LP cigar, looks AMAZING!
A cold draw and smelling gave off a cedary taste with a nice sweetness to it! Very excited to smoke this cigar! Ive been waiting since the day I received them!
Setting, cutter, lighter and drink:
-Paleo Carbon Fiber cutter
-Water with a squeeze of lemon
-Outside on the back patio (keep in mind its very humid right now in Nebraska)
Time to get down to business!
Typical for a Liga Privada cigar, smoking like a pig! Lots of resting smoke and lost of smoke produced from every puff! The flavor was predominately spicy cedar with a hint of coffee and/or caramel. I couldnt really put my foot on it. Very interesting smoke. Not like the Feral flying pigs ive smoked.
First thing I notice is this is a strong cigar. Im currently on a diet so no sugary drinks to help against the nic hit! The spice is still dominating this cigar and the flavors are pretty faint. What I can taste seems to have a caramel and nutty taste. The cigar is drawing really well but the burn has been inconsistent. I think this is mostly due to smoking in a high humidity environment. A few touch ups, nothnig major!
This cigar is really hitting me hard at this point. My smoking pace has slowed. The spice is still dominating the cigar but Im getting more of a leathery, sweet finish. Which was quite intriguing! The nutty flavor isnt present anymore but hints of caramel are coming out more with the leathery finish.
Smoking time: 1 hour and 20 mins
This LP was unlike any of the others Ive smoked. It was slightly disappointing to be honest. The spice was to dominate for me. It was by no means a bad cigar but it isnt what Im into right now. I would prefer a T52 toro or a Feral Flying Pig over these any day of the week! As for the burn issues, I credit those to smoking outside in Nebraska where the humidity is around 80%
Thanks for reading my first review, welcome to comments, questions and suggestions!
