This was an ok cigar, the first one had such a tight draw that it was a little unpleasant to smoke. I think it was a little plugged. Lovely flavors, I could taste smooth, creamy cashew for some time during and after i had finished the cigar, I don t think it would be a regular in my humidor, but it was not unpleasant
It s listed as a full cigar but I found it to be lighter around medium. Hints of wood and spice. Easy draw and even burn. Construction was perfect. Good Cigar!
Smoked a few of these. All of them had that strong sun grown taste. Wood and light coffee components. What I am amazed by is its long long long slightly bitter but in a great way sun grown finish. Great to pair with a slightly peety scotch. Overall great cigar if you like a long finish. All had a slight burn issue but touch ups did not tamper with the flavor to much. If you can get this for under $5.00 a stick it is a great value cigar. Hats off to Alec Bradley on another value winner!
nice cigar same taste through out the cigar. nice even burn
Have had these several times when they come on sale. Always enjoyed them. When you can get them for under $4 each, they are a good deal.
The first 2/3 of this cigar was great! Flavorful with notes of coffee, dark chocolate and sweetness turning into mocha. At the start of the last third the wrapper stopped burning and forced me to touch it up which caused the cigar to turn very bitter and made me put it out. I will try the other I have and if it has the same great flavors it will be one i may need to purchase again.
This was the first Alec Bradley I ve tried, got a sampler pack and liked em a lot. Ordered two more samplers on sale and couple of 5 packs. Great addition to the humidors.
This is one of the better cigars I've smoked out of a Sampler Package I recently purchased. Although I am not a fan of 5" cigars, I burned this one to the nub because it never really got bitter on me. I'm pretty hard on my ratings, ie it takes an authentic Cuban to get a 90 out of me and I give this an 84. If I had a 6" it would have been higher. The first ash was almost 2" long. Cigar has great construction and smells great. I recommend this cigar for the price.
These are really nice - great draw and bold complex flavors. Definitely better than the Sun Grown Patels in the Sonny Red Wise buy, as stated in the other review.
Great smoke dont smoke this or any other cigar down to the last 1/3 rd As Zino Davidoff said "Let the cigar die a dignified death. After it's smoked half way, it will go out on its own"
I received two of these in a sampler and had one this morning with coffee. Outstanding cigar to start the day with. Mild-Medium body but plenty of flavor. Very smooth and a great first smoke of the day. Draw was perfect, construction was great and the burn was decent. My only complaint is that it got a little warm about half way through. At the 2/3 mark I was going to set it down because it was getting to warm, but it went out on me. I still got a good hour out of it though. The flavor also diminished past half way, but was still good. Just purchased the 5-pack off the Monster.
