"This was a cigar that wanted to battle. Whether it was the issues with burn, or the amount of strength it offered, it kept my on my toes. The entire time I smoked it, I kept being brought back to my early years of cigars and the one cigar is reminds me of more than anything is a Liga Privada. The strength, the flavors, and that massive smoke output is right in line with it. It took me back to those days of getting knocked on my rear, surrounded by smoke. It's a cigar I can say I wouldn't reach for, as it just isn't in my wheelhouse anymore. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
