Default Liga Privada 'Dirty Rat' Cigar Review

Liga Privada “Dirty Rat”
Size: 5″ x 46
Vitola: Corona with Fuma cap
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Filler: Honduran and Nicaraguan Cuban Seed
Binder: Brazilian
Price: N/A – Prototype

Some information from Steve Saka (borrowed from a forum post by TG) states that the Dirty Rat is the result of trying to recreate the classic Liga Privada #9 profile in a corona size, however he feels that they never got that quite right. In the process Luis (lead torcedor and gallery supervisor) came up with this blend. Steve goes on to share that this may never see the light of day as the process used to create these bunches makes the cigar cost-prohibitive, it actually costs more to produced the Dirty Rat than a toro size Liga Privada #9.

That's interesting that it costs more to produce this than a toro LP9. And that is an awesome cutter.

No offence, but I think it's quite lame to post a teaser and then refer to your website for the full review

So do I Tim (I have a blog too www.cigarguide.org, not as professional and beautiful like yours though) but giving a teaser and draw attention to a blog that way just ain't my style. To me, I feel its not fair towards the ToE. But hey, I am just a visitor and if the ToE don't have problems with it, nothing I can do, other then express my opinion
