Liga Privada T52 Flying Pig

Aging in my humidor for the right moment...and that moment is now!  Beautifully constructed, packed solid, with a dark, oily wrapper, and an intricate pig tail.  Clipped.  Torched.  Sweet smoke to start.  Pairing this cigar with a glass of Guinness.  This is unquestionably, a cigar enthusiast's cigar.  I referenced this particular stick with a photo sometime last year.  Ken P. at Neumann's Cigars & More in Libertyville gave this to me from his personal stash, allegedly given to him by Steve Saka himself (the big cheese at Drew Estate). 

1/3: Smooth, hearty smoke.  Rich and creamy.  This stalk-cut tobacco is really where it's at.  Spot on burn line going here.  Mild coffee notes with a touch of cocoa.  

2/3: Notes of raisin bread, and some spice through the sinus.  The ash is holding on strong, tilting slightly to one side.  A nice black, oily ring surround the burn line.  I tell you, these are some of the classiest looking bands, and they look extra cool against the dark Habano wrapper.  The burn line is waving around a bit here.  I wonder if it'll correct on its own.  Approaching the halfway mark, some cedar taste is present.  I just felt like ashing, so I did, but it took some effort.  This certainly speaks to the quality construction. 

3/3: Still getting the velvety and heavy smoke.  Vitamin "N" has decided to join the party, but he's being nice. All in all, a great cigar if you can get one.
