Its not a secret I’m a huge fan of the Liga Privada line, especially my beloved T52. I usually have a couple boxes in my humidor of different Ligas, mostly T52 Flying Pigs and Dirty Rats. I was really excited to hear about the release of the next in the Unicos series, Feral Flying Pig. This version was a bigger Fly Pig and much stronger. The cigar features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Brazilian Mata Fina binder and Nicaraguan filler and retails for about $16 a piece. My only problem? Couldn’t find the damn things to save my life. After several months, a buddy of mine who lives in Baton Rouge, LA found some at a local cigar shop and picked me up a couple to try. After smoking my first one, I was immediately hooked. It has a familiarity to it from the flavors that reminded me of my beloved T52, but stronger. Great flavors, long finish and a nice volume of smoke sum up this cigar well.
