Alec Bradley Family Blend BX2 Cigar Review
This 6×54 stick features a dark brown mottled wrapper with a slight red hue, soft sating feel, firm even pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and mild musty damp tobacco aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with minimal mild-medium smoke output with just a slightly sweet earth on the draw and short finish. The first third burns extremely slowly, pouring off foot smoke, opening the draw to normal with good medium bodied smoke output showing sweet earth with a slightly mint clean finish. Hitting the half way point slowly 1 hour in, the ash fell off in a solid third chunk and flavors remain the same with the finish just getting longer. It did require a full relight shortly after the ash first fell, and another in the last third. With just a couple inches remaining it was very hot and squishy at that point so I ended it. Thank you to viewer Marcos Heyliger for providing this sample!
