The Falto Privilegio “Mi Viejo” blends are something extremely special. I decided on two ideal blends using different seeds of tobacco. Therefore, a box contains twenty cigars: ten cigars of Falto Privilegio “Mi Viejo” Liga #8 and ten of Falto Privilegio “Mi Viejo” Liga #9. Both in the same Churchill size (6 ⅜ x 48).
Both cigars have exactly the same blend with a Corojo Ecuador wrapper, Dominican binder and filler made up of Nicaraguan, Brazilian, and Dominican tobaccos.
The difference is that in the Liga #8 as well as in the Liga #9, they use a tobacco called Viso, which is normally found in the second or third priming on the top of the tobacco plant. The seed of the Viso leaf is the essential detail.
The Liga #8 has a Viso of Cuban seed tobacco, delivering a medium to full-flavored smoke with a rich balance and singular complexity. On the other hand, the Liga #9 carries the same percentage of Viso, but from Dominican seed tobacco, which offers us a more full-flavored smoke with a richer complexity and exquisite balance. They are two completely distinct cigars and an example of what a difference a seed can make, even though both were grown in the Dominican Republic.
