Alec Bradley Black Market Reviews
Full-bodied but smooth. Just a solid smoke from start to finish. I've been sampling a lot of cigars looking for my "go to" and I have certainly found it!
Looks Great, NO after taste lingering, excellent taste thru-out, wonderful aged fill. Try this one.
Nice slow burn with medium strength. Little bit of pepper and spice here and there but mostly just a campfire feel through and through. Didn't like it at first since I was in the mood for a flavor bomb but then I started to enjoy its one dimensional flavor. Goes well with single malt whiskey because of the peaty undertone...can't think of when I would smoke this except outdoor evenings.
I have not bought this cigar from Famous but I am seriously considering it. I have bought it numerous times at, ahem, my local cigar shop, and I have really enjoyed it. I like the small size as it is very convenient, both because it is not as big a time commitment as a full-size cigar and also because it is easy to carry around. I am not a cigar expert by any means but I really like the smoke. I find it rich and spicy. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a smaller cigar. I am wondering if the punk in the name is a name for smaller cigars in general if not, it should be or if it actually refers to punk rock? Anyone know?
Just had my second stick from a sampler. Perfectly pleasant, smooth and full-bodied but pretty one-dimensional. Would be a great premium bundled cigar to compete with La Suelo and Trocadero at $3.50 a stick, but at this $6-$7 price point it s completely outperformed by its own kid brother, the wonderfully complex AB Nica Puro. I fail to see who will buy it in preference to the Nica Puro at a similar price point.
This was a very nice cigar to have at the end of the week with a nice glass of scotch. The only down side to this smoke was I had to keep an eye on the burn so that it stayed even.
After trying my first Alec Bradley Black Market, I have to say that this is a winner. Great taste from the beginning to the end. If you like a medium body Madura cigar, you can not go wrong with this flavorful cigar!
Plenty of punches are packed in the Hooligan. well worth the investment.
Amazing, first puff to last! Draw was impeccable, candela wrapper is not what you would expect. Delicious taste. Burn was uneven but I blame myself for lighting improperly as i was snowblowing. Even in the cold weather never had to relite. I loved every bit of this cigar and that was last years model. This release is even better than the first. Well done AB. I will be looking to buy a box of these somewhere soon when in the budget!
