I understand this, but, the wrapper is Connecticut Broadleaf Oscuro. I still think we are splitting hairs here, but I'm definitely interested in figuring out what's up with the "Puro" and "parejo". owboyic9:

I believe a Parejo is an unshaped vitola, as in its not a figurado.

Re: Different Liga Privada no. 9 Oscuro Wrappers

kinda related.. the T52 Belicosos I've had had a distinctly different wrapper than the Toros I've had. The Belicosos were jet black and very textured/bumpy. The Toros were much smoother.. granted this could just be the difference in the particular wrapper leave used but I definitely preferred the Belicoso black and bumpy ones.

Re: Different Liga Privada no. 9 Oscuro Wrappers

Here are the two Liga's ... you can tell the difference in the wrappers. And as you can also tell, they are both exact same vitolas.

Re: Different Liga Privada no. 9 Oscuro Wrappers

Another thing that I noticed is that the label on the Puros Oscuro is a pure white color and the label on the Parejo Oscuro is like a light creme / off-white color.

so again ... I know that they are different, and that the difference is most likely just a different wrapper ... Im just curious what wrapper is being used on each one.

Re: Different Liga Privada no. 9 Oscuro Wrappers

Looks like a T52 wrapper on the left. Maybe they mis labeled them...lol

Did you ask the people that worked there, maybe you can get an answer...

Ahh cool, I went there, Reino had recommended them to me. I only went because he told me that they were doing a sale or something...

Buy any torpedo or perfecto and get any other cigar of equal or lesser value free. Next time you go in, ask her if they still doing that.

I picked up some tat conujus 09s and got the t52s for free!

Re: Different Liga Privada no. 9 Oscuro Wrappers

The same tobacco can have different shades. Those inconsistencies are normal. If anything, I'd say the difference is probably from when they were made/boxed/shipped.
