My Cuban Wheel

Saturday on a very long walk I tried the Liga II in the toro and churchill sized cigars. Construction is good, flavors are very good. I would describe them as deep, rich, almost leathery at times. Some spice. Medium body. Extremely easy draw. Cigar softens some at end. These deliver good value indeed. I thought the blend worked best in the churchill, which was over an hour to smoke, and was a moustache burner. Worthy of a trial if you get the chance.

Just what I needed, another entry on the want to try list.

I had the Number II, tonight.
I just finished it, sitting out in my newly air-conditioned (don't read too much into that....it's an old window unit) garage.

I find these to present a bit of cedar and pepper at the outset, then it settles down, a little, and gets to be more complex. I also get some of the leather character that Jeff indicates, too. The finish is definitely nice, and not very heavy or overpowering, which I very much like. As much as I love my cigars, I don't like tasting the stale tobacco for hours on end.

This is my second cigar from a sampler I got a few months ago, and both were damn near perfectly constructed. The burn is quite straight with a razor edge and strong ash. I am really liking these, a LOT.

Here is their website.
My Cuban Wheel

According to their Facebook
I mentioned the initial sizes already but let me list them again,

Robusto >> Ring gauge 50 x 4.8 inch long

Sublime No. 52 >> Ring gauge 52 x 4.6 inch long

Sublime No. 54 >> Ring gauge 54 x 5.6 inch long

Sublime No. 56 >> Ring gauge 56 x 6.5 inch long

Belicoso >> Ring gauge 52 x 6.15 inch long

They've added sizes, but I can NOT find a blend.

I saw Tommys post on FB and also smoked the robusto MCW but mine was the #1 wrapper/blend. I piced up a wheel when they were like 40 some % off awhile back. The are a good cigar for the $. Easy draw but most I have smoked have burned a bit off center...no bigge as you can correct that with a lighter. I got a little less of the pepper then the other two guys but guess that is spot on as the #1 blend is lighter. Wish there was more cedar flavor but thats because I am a cedar freak lol.

Worth a try imo...look out for deals to pop up

PS anyone ever find out where these are made/ what the binder filler wrappers are?

I'm really loving these cigars. I've shared them with a couple buddies who have in turned stocked up during his sales. Really, really good cigars, and it is a TRUE boutique cigar.

I will definitely have to give these a try...thanks guys.

OK, Is their website the only place to purchase these cigars?
I did a quick search at Smoke Inn and Holts and saw nothing and also saw nothing on a google search...some guidance please?

How about this, they answered about the blends.
I like this, way more forthright than any other tabacalera in a public forum, too.

FYI - he recently posted on Facebook that he wanted people to get a deal on the cigars that they wanted to try, rather than waiting for a special on the cigars they were wanting - so he said to message him for a deal!
