Liga Privadas

La Privadas, wth?

I've heard this brand mentioned a lot, even seen a few being smoked but no way did I ever realize it was that expensive. Somebody please enlighten me to why it cost so much? $18.50 per stick before taxes.

    Depends on who your buying from but yeah they get pricy and for me I've never and will never smoke anything from DE! If you claim to have such great tobacco why "infuse" it?! But as a funny story I was at a b&m and the guy asked me if I tried the Herrera estelli...I said no I don't smoke anything DE...he asked me why for moral reasons and I laughed and said yup! **** Steve sake and JD they are nothing but hype and well I guess it's another hipster thing

    I bought a box years ago when first released. Not nearly that expensive then. Superb construction, favour, burn and value then. This was before they were "discovered" and I don't think they are worth that. But to each their own. For that price I think you can find Opus. Or ask for a trade. I am sure there are some on forum that could help you out. Just ask.

    I would prefer Liga over Opus myself. They are good ROTT, but they go downhill fairly quickly. And no, they are not infused. I do not go and buy them though. Every one I've had has been bombed to me, and I've thoroughly enjoyed each.

    The No. 9's can be found for $10/11 if you are patient and know where to look. 

    That's a strange outlook @Lee.mcglynn.... Not saying you're wrong... it just doesn't compute.

    I like the Ligas but I prefer undercrowns if I'm smoking DE, my wallet prefers it too.
    @GrouchoM , evetually you will want to venture into higher end sticks. Once you do, well, you will be glad you did. I have two Opus set aside for my dad and I to have tomorrow as our first cigars in my new house. I can't wait. He has also never had a dirty rat and the B&M we are going to had them...he might be going home with one!

    Isn't that like the penultimate hipster? Refusing to touch something because it's hipster?

    Exactly.... To say Saka is nothing but hype because he was at a company that sold infused sticks is odd.

    No, please don't be mislead as to my post inferring I'm trying to purchase or try. I'm a newb that just walked past a mazerati with the price tag still in the window and wondered what's all the hype about. My post is just out of being uninformed and knowing you guys actually have much more of a clue to the whys, instead of the bs.

    In my opinion the only way to find out if a cigar is worth the price tag is to try one.  I have sticks that I saw the price, said damn that is way to much for ten; tried one to find out whats up with it, then ended up buying a box.  It all comes down to personal preference.  I do like the 9, T52, ratzilla, feral flying pig, under crown and dirty rats from DE, to me they work, for others they may not.

    So here is where you have to decide for yourself if it's worth it.
    Personally, there are others in that price range, I find myself more attracted to. 
    Padron Family Reserve Natural, God of Fire and Viaje Skull and Bones can all be had around that price and to me, are far better.

    To some, the LP is worth the price and there is nothing wrong with that.
    You have to decide what it's worth to you. 
    I've paid considerably more for cigars that I consider "unicorn cigars".
    And it was totally worth it to me, even though a few turned out to be not so great.  B)
    There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    I bought my first single Liga 9 last week at my local B&M and was pricey but had to know what all the hype was about. Still haven't tried it because I was going to let it rest but your saying it is good ROTT? I paid more to try some  Padron 1926 Maduros and they were worth it.

    Smoke it, Al. It is good to go

    That tobacco looks beautiful. Daniel - Thanks for your deconstruction point of view. 
  • GrouchoMGrouchoM Houston, TexasPosts: 302 ✭✭✭
    Nope, Dexter is the clear winner. 

     
    Ok. I guess I'm past my initial sticker shock regarding Ligas. So, since I opened this Pandora's box. What's the deal with Opus cigars? Everybody talks about them like they're all that, but while I hear about a brother or two that smoke them, they, also seem like a specialty once every blue moon celebratory cigar (except for DZR, sorry Dexter).  

    What other ultra premium cigars am I missing that retail for say $16+ can you guys name that are in people regular rotation? 

    I'm just trying to address my ignorance on ultra premium cigars and to not act so brand new when I eventually see what they sell for.

    Yes, smoke anything you buy from your B&M as soon as you are ready to fire it up. The only reason to let B&M purchases rest is if you accidentally let them get overheated in the car ride home. 

    And, my opinion of the LP9? Goooood. Worth the money? Not quite worth what they charge for singles but OK if you're willing to splurge.

    La Palina family series, Goldie's, and 1502XO.  I hear Davidoff are also popular.

    I like several of the liga's actually all of them except the T52. Probably dirty rats and 9'a are my favorite. Have several 9'a a box of pigs and ratzillas several 4's and 13's. Love them all. They are pricy but I like them.
