Alec Bradley Black Market Short Cigar Review

March 21, 2012 · Posted in Cigar Review, Short Cigar Review 

Disclaimer: I received this sample from Cigars Direct.

Wrapper: Nicaragua   |   Binder: Sumatra   |   Filler: Panama & Honduras   |   Box of 22: $135.00; Single: $6.75   |   Robusto   |   5 ¼″ x 52

0/3: Why “Black Market”? Probably because it sounds edgy. I don’t really care about that stuff though. I will say that I use to smoke a lot of Alec Bradley cigars and I enjoyed them.

It’s a good looking cigar with a neat parejo shape to it. There are some soft spots and minor veins. It feels fuzzy to the touch with a slightly above average amount of oils.

1/3: Leather and spice. Spice is black pepper. Heavy flavors.

2/3: Pretty much the same during this third. The flavor intensity has been raised a little.

3/3: There are some changes here. Burnt wood and sweetness. Some chocolate notes near the end.

4/3: It’s a good cigar. It’s a little heavy, not as in strong but as in the flavors were heavy. Medium bodied with a slightly tight draw and good burn. Many will like it.

3 points
