Review of the Liga Privada T52 : Well here we go again with another cigar review, and since everyone is a expert at everything these days I figure I should give it a try. My cigar background is I work at a cigar store and help sell cigars online, and I’ve been doing this for around 8+ years now, so I guess you can say that I’m pretty connected in the cigar world and seen some things here and there. I have seen and smoked everything from Cuban Davidoff’s to these overly hyped up T52 Liga Privada cigars, so yes I do know what the hell I’m talking about.
The date is 3/23/12 and I have stopped smoking for about 6 months until today, the reason why I stopped smoking is because I run 5 miles every other day and work out a lot so I can chase and beat down the scumbags kids in my neighborhood that try to steal my
shit stuff out of my car, and also I like to get laid every now and then. This being my first day back to the cigar world I decided to smoke a Liga Privada T52 Robusto cigar, we been seeing ridiculous hits on our website for these cigars over 2000 a month, and been hearing cigar smokers talk about these friggin things like J.C. made them himself and cast them down from heaven to all of us over-conservative cigar smokers, so I gave the Liga Privada t52 Robusto’s a shot, and no I’m not gonna say I can taste wood and copper or any pussy stuff like that.
To all of you fly by night cigar reviewer dip-shits which is around a million and counting , a cigar does not taste like cooca,wood, or metal flakes jack asses; it either taste good or not.
When i first lit the Liga Privada T52 cigar my first impression was, “ok this tastes a little different, and I’m not really doing back flips over this cigar”, as i got about a inch into the cigar it started to give a little spicy kick, I could taste a little Spanish cedar which is great and not to many cigar companies can do that to their cigars. As for the wrapper on the cigar being dyed or infused with oil, YES this Liga Privada T52 cigar is absolutely died and infused with Oil. Tobacco does not grow, aged, or fermented into a black color even if it’s been aged for 1000 years.
Here is a picture from the box that was opened 4 days ago.
Half way through the Liga Privada T52 Robusto I noticed that “OMG” this cigar is almost AVERAGE , I was thinking it was going to be the best cigar i ever smoked because of all the hype and rarity of them. The Drew Estate company is treating these like a Opus X like Fuente did in the Late 90’s and up to 2008 before the Obama tax and the crash of Wall Street; now in 2012 take a look a the Fuente cigars, and the Opus X – nobody gives a shit. The marketing plan does and will work for a few years but it’s a double edge sword to be playing that game with the retailers. For example: only 2-3 accounts in each state will get the all mighty Liga Privadas if you own a cigar store and you kiss ass you might get a few boxes here and there, but these are all over the net on web retailers cigar websites – great for Drew Estates but not good for the consumer or cigar store.
I know all you 19 year old cigar experts are thinking that I’m a disgruntled cigar store owner that can’t get these cigars, but trust me that’s not it we sells these all the time and don’t have a problem getting most of the sizes when they are available, so come up with something else to put your 2 cents in or “just sayin” bullshit on the comment section. The Liga Privada is not even that good, don’t get me wrong it’s a good cigar probably a solid 7 out of 10, but it’s not even close to any of the Padron Anniversary cigars.
My outspoken opinion, and my opinion does count because I own this website, is these cigars are average at best and the Liga Privada’s are not a big deal, if you can get them then great, but i would not waste my time, you should grab a Padron 45 Family Reserve. Bottom Line: The Liga Privada T52 cigars are OVER-RATED.
