    Liga Privada Nasty Fritas. The younger sibling of the Papas Fritas. And part of the Liga Privada Year of the Rat sampler for the Chinese zodiac Year of the Rat. We started the year of the rat with a series of reviews of Year of the Rat cigars. But this sampler wasn’t in our possession back then. It is now, so we will end the Year of the Rat with another series of Year of the Rat cigars. The complete sampler will go up in smoke.

    The cigar is a medium filler. Made from leftover tobacco and clippings of the Liga Privada T52 and Liga Privada #9 production. In that way, this is very similar to the Liga Privada Papas Fritas but in a different vitola. In a cone-shaped 4×52 Pyramid to be precise. The wrapper is from Connecticut and it’s broadleaf Oscuro. The binder is Brazilian Mata Fina. The filler consists of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos.

    The review

    This is a funny looking cigar. The shape was clear even though the cigar is covered in blue wax paper. But once unwrapped the cone shape with the short, yet stubby, antenna of tobacco at the head makes this cigar sort of a gimmick to see. The construction feels good. The ring is similar to all Liga Privada rings. Small, simple, with the Liga Privada logo and the name of the vitola. Nothing more, nothing less. The wrapper looks leathery and the aroma is leathery too. The closed foot fits the look of the cigar.

    Even with the closed foot, the cold draw is easy. The first puffs are confusing. Leather with cayenne pepper. But also sweetness. And a dry, almost dusty mouthfeel. The flavor in the mouth is nice, but the retrohale gives a dry, yet musty wood flavor in the nose. The cigar doesn’t really develop. Once the first dust is settled, it’s mainly spice with leather and wood.

    Halfway there’s wood with a mushroom flavor, mild leather, some spice, and some pepper. And it’s all tied together with a mild citrus flavor. But everything is mellow, muted. Nothing like any other Liga Privada. The finale is pure and strong leather with sweetness and white pepper.

    The draw is very good. And the smoke, well, this is a Drew Estate cigar so the fire brigade probably had a few calls due to excessive smoke clouds over our office, The burn is great too. The light-colored ash is dense and firm. The smoke time is one hour and thirty-five minutes.

    Strength: medium-full
    Flavor: medium
