This time of year is always slow for us here at the Stogie Review. The majority of us live in parts of the country where it’s generally too cold to spend an extended period of time outside smoking a large cigar. When you can’t smoke indoors at home, and don’t have the time to make it to a cigar lounge as often as you like, your ability to record video cigar reviews during these cold winter months is rather limited.
Undaunted by 20-degree temperatures and gently falling snow, I was determined to get out there and put together a review video for you all to enjoy. So, I bundled up, grabbed my iPhone, and pulled a Liga Privada Papas Fritas from my office humidor. Knowing that this mixed-filler petit corona would only require about 20 minutes or so to smoke, I ventured out into the unforgiving open air to light up and roll film.

It should come as no surprise that I’m a big fan of the Liga Privada Papas Fritas. After all, I included it in my list of “Cigars to Watch in 2013.” Honestly, I really can’t think of a more ideal quick smoke. I’ll always make sure I’m well-stocked for those frequent occasions when I’m running short on time but want a quick fix of great Liga Privada flavor. If you’re still hung up on the notion of paying six bucks for a short-filler cigar, all I can say it: get over it.

Charlie thanks for the Frozen Review… I have to pick some of these up soon I have been hearing how good they are. Stay warm my friend.
Hey great review! Just one thing why do you always have theeeeee worst music choices ever?!?!?!?!
When you’re limited to using music that’s free for commercial use due to copyright reasons, the pickings are rather slim.
Another great review i love the liga privada #9 looking forward to trying this cigar out. I feel your pain havent been able to get out and smoke a cigar in a few weeks way to cold out. I think the Liga Privada Papas Fritas is a great way to get a great smoke in, in a short amount of time. Thanks for such a great job you guys do. Stay warm and keep smoking……
I just finished my first tin of these. They are very good and you can definately taste the Liga but they are overpriced in my opinion. My goto short smoke are Tatuaje PCRs and they are alot cheaper at $4.50.
Sorry, but some of us can’t afford to pay 6 bucks for a short filler, TINY cigar. Guess I can’t get over it. Pass.
Absolutely love these. I don’t understand why people care how long the filler is if it tastes great. Lots of crap long fillers out there.
Great point, Joe!
Its a supply and demand. You don’t buy the cigar until the priceis right. Show your buying power people………
Thanks Charlie, for doing the review outside in the cold, sounds like a good smoke. I’m not that brave to smoke in the cold weather.
Thanks for the review and for freezing for us!
Thanks for the review, love theese little smokes, they last at least twice as long when I have smoked them. Half the size and half the price of liga 9 and a third of t52. I figure theese are priced right for an excellent cigar of the same flavor and quality as all the liga privadas.
Nice review! I had my first one last week and loved it! At $5 I’d buy them all day long, but I can’t find them for that price, and I do love the Undercrown CV, so it’s a tough call.
Also, I have to urge you ALL to just say no to vertical videos!
Amazing cigars right here. One of my favorites. Especially when you just don’t have enough time for a larger sized stick. Razor sharp burn and perfect draw every time.
