    I discovered the Liga Privada No. 9 a year ago this past February while in New Orleans. I bought one on a whim, and I was blown away by how good I thought it was. They are very difficult to find, but if you can get a hold of one do yourself a favor and pony up the $$. As the review noted, they may not be the “best” . . . but they’re damn good.

    I just heard about the Liga Privada No. 9 about two weeks ago. I check Havana Mix in downtown Memphis and they had them stocked so I bought one and put it in my humidor. I hadn’t tried it yet but looking forward to enjoying it with a nice bottle of scotch or cognac.

    I’ve been smoking the Liga Privada No.9 for about two years now and I must say I have never been disappointed. As the article states it has excellent flavor and burns as slow as molasses. Once it’s lit, that’s it. No relighting required. The ash is one of the best I’ve seen and the flavors will take you places tastefully that one would expect from a great cigar. My recommendation is that you buy without hesitation. Great cigar!

    I had just finished dinner and was walking home in 10 degree windy and cold night and ducked into an unassuming smoke shop which didn’t carry the liga privada # 9. No surprise there as it is usually found and sold in more upscale cigar lounges here in NYC. I used to only smoke true Cuban Cohiba Robustos until I found the #9 and paired it with an 18 year old McCallen. I was converted on the spot and haven’t looked back since. Rather than spend money on an alternative cigar which wasn’t my passion I chose to wait till the opportunity arose to smoke the liga privada # 9 again.

    Waiting for a box to arrive. Smoked one that had spent about a year in a humidor and it was excellent. It will be the only non-Cuban leaf in my collection. A little pricey but they are outstanding.

    Smoking one while I’m typing lol, I have to agree it’s pricey but I don’t feel cheated . the smoke from this cigar gives unbelievable the taste constantly changes, burns slow, leaves your palet like not even smoking. It’s everything I ask from a cigar. I’m smoking it with Four Roses Single Barrel. PURE HEAVEN!!!!

    My first Liga Privado#9 was a gift from a friend in San Diego,and I was very impressed by the flavor,strength and burn of this BEAUTY! Will have to get a few to keep in my humi….a bit pricey but worth it.

    I can see why the President of Drew Estates Micheal Cellucci would have these made for his private collection. I tried to be critical of this cigar as I smoked it and I honestly could not find anything wrong with this cigar. Perfect from start to finish. Obviously experts roll these babies and the draw is spot on. It burns razor sharp. One of the silkiest and smoothest cigars out there in the full bodied category. I too wish the price would come down on them as well. Expensive to purchase even in the cigar auctions, but if you love cigars you have to try them. You won’t be dissapointed.

    Smoking one while reading all this. Totally agree with the reviews! I’ve been restricting myself to Cubans for years and – because moving to the US – wanted to taste something more accessible over there. These are among my favorite cigars right now. Smoking the second today and will most likely not be buying Cohibas again in a long time (reminds me a lot of the Cohiba Maduro).
