    Review - Liga Privada Unico Papas Fritas

    This is my first review so hopefully they will get better with time...


    Size: 4 1/2 x 44
    Country of Origin: Nicaragua
    Wrapper Color: Maduro
    Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
    Binder: Brazilian Mata Fina
    Filler: Seconds
    Vitola: Petit Corona

    Summary: I have had a papas fritas every morning for the last couple of weeks so I am sort of partial to
    this cigar.

    Construction: Oily dark wrapper with some tooth not smooth minimal veins and tight seams, but you can see a flaw in the seams in the picture below. cap is uneven
    but well done.






    1/3 -
    Flavor: woody pepper ( licorice almost ) on retro-hale, smooth, woody/licorice sweetness leather, undertones of chocolate coffee.
    Burn: sharp cool good
    Aroma: unique not something you smell often sweet leather tobacco smell
    Finish: Not much clean



    2/3 -
    Flavor: Cinnamon/pepper licorice/woody on retro-hale little bit of a burn, chocolate coco little bit of spice
    the leather is always there it is a bit sharp, could probably use some rest.
    Burn: sharp cool
    Finish: Getting a bit of the pepper/cinnamon licorice/woody oil on the tongue finish is lengthening


    3/3 -
    Flavor: licorice/cognac/woody some say woody but for me it gets to be almost a licorice and sharpens sometimes to a cognac.
    still has sweet taste, leather and spice is always there. coco coffee undertones it is picking up
    the nicotine is picking up picking up some chocolate on certain puff's you pick up sometimes the coco, coffee etc on certain puffs.
    Burn: sharp cool
    Finish: Finish seems to have cleaned up a bit not very long but still getting a pepper licorice/woody oil on the tongue.




    Conclusion: I would say this is medium strength for nicotine flavor would be medium to full
    good smoke production excellent draw.. I rate these cigars even as seconds highly even by
    long filler standards. Papas Fritas is in my normal rotation and I give a hats off to the
    blenders and those who have helped create this special cigar that sets the bar that every short filler wants to be.

    Nice review. This stick was my intro into the unicos. What was your burn time? I think I'm a slow smoker and got like 45 minutes out of it.

    Normally these last me around 30 minutes... I didn't keep track on this one... I will on my next reviews a couple of things I didn't hit on this was the ash how sturdy it was and the time.. I love these during my morning coffee which many others have noted because they give you a little kick short smoke something you can smoke enjoy with a good cup of coffee and browse the RSS/sites or do your morning routine

    Thanks for your review. It takes me 40-45 minutes to smoke them. I am a big LP fan and when I don't have a lot of time, Papas Fritas is my go to cigar.

    Well you gotta try this one you won't believe it is even a mixed filler to be honest.. I gave one to my father because he was like that looks like an interesting cigar... that is the tale tale sign of a 72 year old man wanting a cigar and he was impressed when I told him it was a short filler. Needless to say I ran out of papas fritas on that visit I normally carry a couple of tins in my traveldor when I travel.
