I just purchased a Liga Pravada #9. Not sure if I should smoke it now or wait for my pallette to develope so I can really appreciate it.

... or, if you're like me, wait for the cigar itself to smooth out. My stash of 9's are a year old now, and I like 'em, but they're not yet in the "sweet spot" for my tastes. I'll keep re-visiting them every 6 months. I'm expecting them to be awesome with 2-3 yrs.

If you like the "spicy bite," you may want to smoke yours with just a couple months of humidity equalization.

Thanks Darrel! Regarding the No9, it depends on how your palate is now. Some people want the LP9 smooth, like Aroma. Others, including Steve Saka, for whom the blend was developed, prefer it relatively fresh, as the flavors are bolder and hit a little harder initially.

If you're like me, you may not notice a big difference between a relatively fresh one and a year old one. Smoke it now, so you can decide if you like it. If you do, buy a few to rest for a year or so and see how you like them then!

Great advice Derek!

Plus there will be many more Liga # 9's available as they are part of the core line that Drew Estates provides. So unless its a Flying Pig # 9 then smoke it right after it has had time to aclimate to your humidor. Then you will know what a "fresh" Liga No 9 is like and you can decide if you want to let the flavors blend and mellow some on your future smokes.

Its a great stick either way in my book!

Way different experience! Its more like a heavy piece of meat compared to a slice of exquisitely prepared gourmet turkey. Smoke is thick and dense with a slightly sweet finish. Each has their place on the cigar roster in my book.
