Ligero - Care to discuss

I LOVE a ligero. But as of late, they are getting harder and harder to find. Is the general consensus turning away from this style and more towards something else ??

What do you mean by "I love a ligero"? Ligero in the name? Ligero in the filler? All ligero filler? Ligero wrapper? All ligero cigar?
There are litterly thousands of cigars that use ligero, I don't think theres a shortage of them.

Could not agree more with this statement. I literally have hundreds of different marcas in my inventory that use Ligero in their blends. These days I find it more difficult to find cigars without tons of Ligero. I like it for its kick, but IMHO find that too much Ligero only makes for a boring and flavorless cigar.

The Oliva V is a famous example of a ligero heavy cigar.

True, but still - I'd be glad to give a try to all-ligero. If there is any.

From what I understand ligero is added in small amounts to enhance flavor but the burn characteristics is no bueno. Think an all ligero smoke would be a struggle..

I may be wrong, it's just something I've heard along the way.

Oooohhh no sir, you are on point about the burn. Ligero slows down the burn rate of a cigar because Ligero does not like to burn. Every single heavy Ligero cigar I've ever smoked needed multiple relights. Doesn't swade me from smoking them, but I just come prepared now and have low burn expectations.

I believe the Tatuaje T110 is an all ligero cigar. I'm sure there are other brands out there.
