Default Re: Liga Privada #9 Flying Pig

Great review and pic's my brother!

I was at a Liga Privada Event at my local B&M last night, I have always liked the No. 9 and finally got to try the T-52, I really liked the additional spiceyness it has.

I had a chance to get a couple of the Flying Pigs but between the Robust Porter, the Scotch and Tequilla I forget about them.

I was a B&M yesterday and they had 3 boxes of these. Are these still limited to 2000 boxes or did they decide to make these a regular production just not as many? There seems to be quite a few floating around. They are one heck of a great cigar so hoping it will be around for a while.

I think what you are seeing is a staggered release as I don't think the release numbers have changed, and they can only produce about 700 of these cigars per day (only 4 rolling teams for these cigars, quota limited to 175 per team per day so they don't have to rush).

Excellent review!
I had a "regular" #9 at my B&M a few weeks ago (which I loved) and I'm pretty sure I saw a few of these funny looking ones. I'm going for a smoke today, I'll have to try one if their are any left...

I found a box at a sort of local B&M and thought what the hell...took it up to the register and was given the total of $158.00. I said "Is that with the box discount". And it was. So i put them back in the walk in.

When these can be had all over the net for $120.00 no way am I going to pay a 32% premium for the privilege of buying local.

According to Steve Saka on 06 Jan 2010, only about half of the 09 Flying Pigs have been shipped, so you should still have some opportunities to obtain them (I know that CI hasn't gotten their shipment in yet and they are listing them at less than B&M prices):

On average, only about 200 boxes are ready per month for shipping into the US each month so they are extremely rare. As for whether there will be more produced, it hasn’t been decided yet.

I think most online retailers are sold out or back ordered, but Tex is showing them in stock right now: $64 for 6.
http://www.texcigars.com/Liga-Privad...-9-Flying-Pig/

CI hasn't gotten their shipment in yet:
http://www.cigarsinternational.com/p...m=CS-LPB&cat=3

I think Corona is also waiting for their shipment:
http://www.coronacigar.com/products/...ew-estate.html

That's just off the top of my head, might be a few others out there right now.

Texcigars are the only ones I find in stock. They won't sell you a box, only a bundle of 6.

hmm, I hadn't been interested in Liga Privada before, but I might have to hunt some down.

So call them up. buy two bundles then and ask them to send the empty box too.

(I've never tried this, with them, but I can't see why they wouldn't do it)

I would think it would be easier for Don to just go to their store.
