Review:
Easily the best cigar to come out in 2017. Nick Melillo knocked it out of the park with this stick, and it is, in my opinion, the pinnacle of the Mexican San Andres wrapper. Any size will get the job done, but my personal favorite is the Churchill. This is a cigar everyone must have in their humidor.

This is the best size of the Undercrown. It showcases everything the blend brings to the table, has a delightful balance throughout the entire cigar, produces insane amounts of smoke, and fully delivers on the medium plus profile. Not a cigar for every day or every enthusiast, but a solid addition to your rotation when things are getting stale.

Mombacho Cigars Mambacho Liga Maestro

Claudio Sgroi is one of the few people in the industry who can truly claim the title of \"Master Blender\". He has an intimate understanding of tobacco and what the tobaccos he\'s using will do, and he couples that with the integrity to scrap a project if it isn\'t doing exactly what he wants it to do. With that kind of person at the helm, Mombacho will continue to put out exquisite cigars with a ton of complexity and impeccable construction for years to come. The Liga Maestro is no exception. Tons of complexity, a wonderful sweetness, and incredible balance all the way through. Definitely a cigar to buy a box of just to let sit.

Review:
The Highclere Castle is a testament to Nick Melillos ability as a blender. This cigar has a shit load of complexity, a wholly unique flavor profile that feels like a cross between illusione and davidoff, and it\'s a wonderfully refined and interesting cigar that not everyone will \"get\". Definitely worth picking up if you dig a lighter bodied cigar with a ton of interesting flavors. That said, this cigar is not for me, and really that all hinges on the price. I understand Why the price tag is what it is, but if it were $3-4 dollars cheaper, I would smoke it regularly.

Much like the tabernacle, I feel this cigar Had to exist. It is a variation on the theme from the Liga Privada line and it fills that role very well. I\'m not a huge fan of it, because it\'s not, in my opinion, the best showcase of Steve\'s skill as a blender. Worth smoking, but not my number 1 from Dunbarton.

THIS is a Great example of what Steve Saka is capable of. A ton of sweetness, complex all the way through, slowly changing profile from one puff to the next to tell a story throughout the entire experience. Pick this cigar up. Smoke it.

Easily one of the best cigars made as a regular production today. This has been my desert island cigar for years, and will likely continue to be old faithful for years to come. Willy made one of the best cuban cigars I\'ve had in years and did it exclusively with non cuban tobacco.
