I hear you - not sure if it's me due to smoking too quickly but I get some of those now & then. Frustrating for sure though. I'm finally getting to where I figured out what flavors I like and pair that with the burn I like....getting to where I don't like messing with touch up's or poking at it. Maybe I'm too old & crotchety, I don't knowI don't know what it is with the Axis Mundi, but me and that Cigar just don't get along well. I love the flavor, but damn, I always have burn issues with these things. It's a Cigar that is rolled very tight, which I don't like. Maybe it's operator error. I just don't know?
About 1" in, I end up with a charcoal pocket that blocks the tobacco from burning evenly going forward, and then the cigar overheats trying to puff on it.
A work associate, asked me about the Liga #9. Told him it was an excellent Cigar, albeit, with a higher price tag then average.The Liga Privada H99 came out first as a limited production cigar. Probably to test the waters and see if it would sell. These cigars are now on a regular production, but can't seem to find them anywhere. I hope to smoke it this weekend, and give you guys a report. I am a huge fan of the Liga Privada No. 9s & T52s, but unfortunately can't never find them on sale. So, I stick to the Undercrowns.
