I tried one already, a Flying Pig LP Anniversario and it was a really good smoke, the wrapper looks a bit like the Davidoff Nicaraguans, smoother than the regular Liga.
You can't compare it with a regular Liga, that's all I can say. (pricey though)
Let me get this straight. You are indeed saying it is a different blend?? From the other Liga Privadas 9 T52 or any of the other Unico Serie??

@problemsolverjc, can you confirm the Anniversario is a different blend? And WHAT IS A PAPAS FINAS?
I can confirm that it is a different wrapper. It's sun grown habano, while the No 9 is maduro broadleaf and the T52 is maduro habano.

Papas Finas are all smaller ring guage liga. Like a 6 x 46, 4.5 x 42, 4.5 x 46, etc.

T52 wrapper is a sun grown habano along with the Unico series that use that wrapper.

T52 is a sun grown MADURO wrapper, anniversario is natural sun grown, not maduro.

Same seed, different curing process.

The same way Padron natural and Padron maduro are the same wrapper with different curing processes.

So the Aniversario isn't the stalk cut and cured sun grown habano but rather just sun grown and obtained by traditional method?

The process of growing in the sun or shade, how the tobacco is harvested, and the curing and fermenting process used are three different things.

Yes habano sun grown and sun grown maduro wrappers are from the same plant, both grown in the sun, both stalk cut (as is the broadleaf tobacco used in the LP9 as well)

As a general rule, in conneticut, both habano (T52 wrapper) and broadleaf (LP9 wrapper) tobacco are stalk cut, and air cured in the barn. Both are grown in the sun.

The fermentation part of the curing process comes after the leaves are harvested and hung in a barn to air cure. While fermentation usually happens in a pilon, some factories do cook, paint or dye their tovacco leaves to make them maduro.

The same leaf from the same plant will smoke, taste and be a different blend if one cigar leaves the wrapper leaf natural and the other the wrapper leaf is fermented differently (or otherwise) made maduro. All tobacco goes through a fermentation process to release the ammonia and other gases. How that process happens, the temp, moisture, length of time, etc impact the final leaf.

There are lengthy threads here about how leaves are made to be maduro, and the difference that makes in the flavor of cigars. Both in strength and sweetness.

Having smoked both, the sun grown habano natural on the liga anniversario does smoke very different than the maduro sun grown habano on the T52.

All of that said, it's all just dried, dead, rolled up leaf. Everything else is just pomp and circumstance.

How the crap am I just now seeing this!? I'm very interested!

If anyone is around in Easton, we got boxes in the retail store broken down into singles for sale. We've also got the new liga sizes "finas", and drew second bundles (ct. Broadleaf, ct. Habano, shade and mexican).
Can I order over the phone?
