Cigar Review: Liga Privada Nasty Fritas by Drew Estate

Initial Thoughts:

Just like not all cigars are created equal, not all cigars are shaped like a tube. And that is definitely the case of this Liga Privada Nasty Fritas.

This weird-looking, oddly shaped, turd-reminiscent cigar has a dark, brown wrapper that is fairly rustic in appearance. The closed foot is very exciting and a way of rolling a cigar that I've come to really enjoy. Although the Nasty Fritas (“nasty fries” in English) is pretty weird looking, I'm looking forward to diving in.

Final Thoughts:

What an interesting little cigar the Liga Privada Nasty Fritas is. Although this cigar has a weird shape, after cutting it with my guillotine cutter from Xikar, the draw was perfect.

While I applaud Drew Estate (the guys who make Liga Privada) for trying something new and making a cigar in a weird size, I think they missed the mark on the price point for the Nasty Fritas. I was only able to enjoy it, which I did, for about 35 minutes. If this cigar had come in at around $4.99 instead of $6.99, it would have scored higher.

But, since the quality of the cigar doesn't justify the price, and because I wouldn't really smoke it again, the Liga Privada Nasty Fritas earns a CigarScore of 2.
