"Like a Campfire in Your Mouth"
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.

"Who is it blended for?"
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.

"Good smooth cigar"
Tried this cigar with a Alec Bradley sampler and was very pleased. Hints of spice and wood is what I tasted. Medium, with a easy draw and thick white smoke. Burn was a little uneven but that not big of a deal. Suggest you try.

"Was not expecting that!!!"
This cigar was one of the better ones I have had the pleasure of enjoying! the First few puffs had a nice peppery and chocolate taste to them, and then in the middle it became a real smooth almost sweet taste with a finishing taste similar to the beginning but mixed with the middles taste. Before lighting it, it took the time to examine the cigar and it seemed to be constructed very very well. A good smoke at a good price, I definitely recommend this cigar to anyone looking for a kick butt smoke.

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!

Always a keep a few in my humidor. Great draw, even burn, plenty of flavor filled smoke that develops through the cigar. Especially nice if rested for several months.

I bought a group of 15 sampler and in this group was this Alec Bradley 'black market' blend....I am already a fan of the Sun grown Corona
These are incredible, buying a 5 sampler just to be absolutely sure..What a great smoke

"Excellent cigar, I want a box!"
This might be my favorite cigar so far, very peppery at first, dark oaky, leathery, mellowed soon into awesome creamy taste, and stayed there. Burn was a bit uneven but not objectionably so. Nice thick smoke,pretty blue on the front end. I absolutely intend to obtain more of these, I'm sad to see it burning shorter. :) highly recommended this one.

"Might have needed more time in the Humidor"
Well I bought this about a month ago. let it sit in my humidor for until today and lit it up. Its quite aromatic. Slight floral nights and definitely a nice smoke but it had some rather harsh parts as well. I think I'll buy a 5 pack and let them sit for a year and then give them a whirl again. The initial light wasn't that great. It went out on me but after that it was fine. had a small wavering line but quickly straightened itself out. I'm pleased but hoping some more time will get rid of the harshness. Give em a try. a good 85 in my book. So far. Hopefully a good 90 the second time around
