This robusto shaped cigar was heavy in the hand and solid to the touch.  The wrapper was dark, oily and slightly veiny with a sweet and clean pre-light nose.  The smoke had a mouthwatering, creamy texture with some black pepper notes. The aroma was sweet with spicy, earthy tones.  Nice construction and burn overall.  Medium to full body with a longer, full finish and packed with flavor.

This cigar has a dark oily wrapper with a couple of veins, a good bunch and an excellent cold draw. Light aromas from the wrapper and foot of nuts and cedar. Tonight\'s beverage is a Westmalle Belgian Trippel Ale. This is a Nicaraguan Puro that starts out smooth on the palate and peppery on the retrohale. I taste rum, cedar and well aged tobacco. The burn is perfect and the ash is light grey. The ash is not flaky and appeared solid but dropped at one inch. After the first third the rum notes are folding into the complex cedar and tobacco notes, and the pepper notes remain steady in the retrohale. Coffee notes are appearing that smooth it all out for a simply excellent flavor. After the second third the burn required a light touch up but is still smoking very smooth. The coffee notes have strengthened but have not completely overtaken the pleasant rum notes. The smoke is leaving a nice light rum finish, especially in the nose. The ale was not as heavy as other trippels that I have tried, but it had a nice spice of its own that complemented the cigar very well. Approaching the final inch I had another touch up on the burn. Otherwise the construction is very good and the complexity of the coffee, rum, pepper, cedar and tobacco notes are very pleasant. When the wrapper became warm I used some light purges and the smoke remained cool.
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.
