I continue my journey through the Liga Privada line, now getting to the Ünico Serie cigars. Exclusive blends that are limited in production and full on unique flavor combinations. I finally got my hands on the UF-13 which is part of the Liga Privada Ünico Serie. The UF stands for Unico Fuerte and “13” is the factory muestra number. This cigar smells delightful. Softly sweet with a spicy undertone. The wrapper is so dark and beautiful to look at, powdery, and there are visible leaf lines. The stand out feature is the pigtail cap. Band remains constant with the Liga line of cigars, an industrial feel to it, well designed. I snip and light it up.
First puffs– There is a little pepper out of the gate. But there is a subtle sweetness that creeps in. Along with hints of oak. Very mellow blended start. The flavors mix perfectly. Draw is a tad tight causing smoke production to be medium.
First third– Pepper and a dry oak fill the palette. The finishing flavor tastes like a dry powder chocolate. The draw has improved a lot is smoking wonderfully now.
Second third– The chocolate is coming through more along with a dry oak. Very smooth and creamy smoke so far. Construction is so good, producing a tight ash.
Final third– A mix of the same flavors, a bit more pepper though, but they are welcomed. Steady and oh so tasty. Still drawing good and smoke is great.Overall a fantastic smoking experience. Great oak flavors mixed with pepper and chocolate. True to the Liga Privada line this is a cigar that has it’s flavors perfected. I highly suggest hunting this down and smoking one. You will not be disappointed at all.
