In any event the review and pictures are well done...
I know a lot of people don't like Drew's stuff, but I think some of the Naturals are good (Root, Jucy Lucy) and the Chateau Real is a decent mild stick.

But the Liga Privada No. 9 is a country unto itself. Up there with the true masters.

I dropped $11.25 on one yesterday and was very disappointed. Perhaps my pig was a H1N1 carrier.

I have enjoyed all of the Liga Privada No.9 cigars I have smoked. The flying pig had similar flavors but severly muted versions. Think of smoking a LP9 while you have a horrible sinus infection (or perhaps the swine flu?); there you have my pig experience. The cigar was firm and burnt well. Draw was poor through the tapered foot but it opened up once it was a parejo.

My verdict; not worth giving another shot unless it was half the price.

I would have agreed with you on this, untill I tried a Liga Privada. I can only say "try it, just once, and see if you'll change your mind". I liked the Liga Privada a lot, even though it is made by Drew Estate.

Excellent Review! I've been a big fan of the Liga Privada series from Drew Estate. This looks like it will be a good cigar.
