I ended up with 2 AB 1633 cigars instead of the 2 black markets, i decided to give it a shot and quite frankly i m disappointed because they are absolutely abhorrent to smoke. My sampler should have been called the Best of Alec Bradley Connecticut Wrappers sampler since they constituted 6 out of 10 60% of the cigar i received. List of what i got and my smoking experience with them. 2 AB Alec Bradley Sun Grown: This is tasty cigar and its a shame that they decided to give me the 1633 instead of more of these beauties. These are great cigars for the price point and are the only reason i don t reel ripped off from this sampler. 2 AB 1633 Connecticut: Godawful cigar that has a loose draw and with a terrible bitterness throughout. How this was considered a good substitute for a Black market is beyond me. 2 AB Connecticut: Not as Godawful as the 1633 but the loose draw didn t help matters. This was a poor tasting cigar that was a chore to smoke. 2 AB American Sun Grown: Blah cigar that was only marginally better than the other Connecticuts. 2 AB Nica Puro: Have not smoke any but i m hopeful since its not a Connecticut. Seems that a loose draw on Alec bradley s is something you want to avoid since they taste terrible. I enjoy black markets and my observation is that those with a loose draw i always have to put down early. It seems that if the construction of AB are too loose the cigar will taste terrible.
I love backwoods they smoke great burn slow and great tasting flavors. There the only thing I can use to roll up and smoke with #Backwoodbandit
Great honest cigars. Only problem is their shipping sux took 5 days to get my order to me and I live 5 hours away in same state
Excellent taste. Consistently delicious. I will continue to recommended it to many people.
Only one of the seven was below par, all the others were excellent, just as advertised. Drew Estate makes excellent product.
Mild goodness that always burns evenly. No runners and a mild flavor that is balanced. There is a consistent flavor from start to end. Infused with coffee that is done right. Heaven for infused lovers that want it mild.
Unbelievable value for these fantastic sticks!Great sampler for Drew Estate...... every one of these is tasty!
These were great! I liked the Rosado and American Market the best. Had a little trouble with one Nicaraguan, but it was either a one time issue or cured by 4 or 5 weeks in the humidor.
Enjoyed this sampler and would buy it again.
Backwoods are my favorite. I love the different flavors that come in this sampler pack.
