Appearance of Liga Undercrown Maduro

It is evident from the box’s appearance that the design of the cigar is an important factor. The light brown color of the box is simple yet elegant.

The logo and small band on the cigar are delicate royal blue and gold. With the Maduro shade wrapper, the small gold logo resonates with clarity and elegance.

The wavy design of the band compliments the size and shape of the cigar as well.

The oily wrapper gives the cigar an excellent feel. There are minimal veins that are visible yet small.

Smoking Experience

The cold draw has a strong cocoa and cedar flavor.

Earthy flavors are what impress my palate at the first puffs. There are hints of cocoa, together with mild citrus and vanilla. The pepper is smooth in the retrohale. The hint of bread and baked pretzel combines well with the smooth pepper, too.

In the first third, there is also a noticeable mild sweetness and creaminess. The muted chocolate flavors were there but have not developed into a satisfying note yet.

In the second third, the spice recedes a bit. This flavor paves the way for the cocoa, which becomes darker, richer, and fuller. Again, there is a distinguished smoothness in the retrohale. All this happens with the earthy flavor serving as a base for the flavors. The pepper is smooth as well, but the body becomes fuller. Its full flavor includes almond, cinnamon, as well as leathery notes. Towards the end of the second third is where the shift from medium to full-body starts.

Meanwhile, the cigar has got a straight burn and white ash.
In the final third, the earthy base works well with the dark cocoa. The cocoa goes full steam while the pepper finish becomes subtle, almost a dash of gentle spice. The nicotine level, though, is pretty high at this point. It would be good to smoke this one slowly.

Throughout the session, flavors were consistent. The cocoa was also present throughout my session, while the sweetness of the bread-like scent remained pleasant. The construction was solid as well.


Liga Undercrown Maudro Box

This cigar is more than worth it for its price point. Complex and full-bodied flavors are present in this Liga Undercrown Maduro Gran Toro. For veteran cigars, there are a lot of flavors to explore in this cigar. Moreso, this is a cigar worth gifting or recommending to fellow enthusiasts. There are plenty of flavors that drum up nicely in your palate without leaving bitterness with a full-body and strength. The retrohale and finish are both smooth. I give it an 88.
