Liga Privada No. 9 Robusto by Drew Estate

In honor of this being my 300th post, I smoked one of the better cigars in my stash, the Liga Privada No. 9 Robusto by Drew Estate. You can pick these up as a single from famous-smoke.com for $12.70 each.

Just by the feel, I knew this would be a great smoke. The oily oscuro wrapper felt like fine sandpaper to my fingers, it was rolled on seamlessly and had only the finest of veins. From the foot of this well packed cigar, my nose could sense notes of deep, earthy, fruity, tobacco. Once the triple cap was clipped the free draw produced flavors of spicy dried fruit.

After I had the No. 9 cigar burning the initial full bodied flavors were dark chocolate and ripe tree fruit. I found this cigar very interesting and complex. The flavor shifts were subtle and slow to develop but once they did it was like; BANG, I'm here now. The other flavors were cashew, brown sugar, earth, oak, campfire, espresso, anise, mocha, cream and charcoal. The one hour and forty minute burn time finished with a fantastic flavor mix of burnt mocha.

The No. 9 produced loads of campfire scented smoke and it developed a nice oil line just above the burn. Overall this Liga Privada No. 9 Robusto by Drew Estate was a fantastic cigar and I'm glad I picked it for my 300th post!
