Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan Barberpole Cigar Review – This 6×50 stick features a dual wrapper construction with alternating strips spiraled around the binder with maduro and candella leaf.  It shows minimal veins, tight seams, large double cap, a soft silky firm feel and pungent sweet cocoa and hay aroma.  First light reveals a good draw with mild-medium bodied flavors of a grassy sweetness, creamy milk chocolate with a short clean smooth finish of the same.  The first third burns a bit wonky but comes up to a medium body with good smoke output.  Flavors go to a peppery deep smooth earth with no bite, lasting through the now long finish.  The half way point comes at 40 minutes with excellent construction dropping the ash in a solid chunk.  Flavors transition again to a strong cocoa and plum sweetness in the background, with a long smooth finish.  Ending at 1:10 the last third flavors went to a smooth earth and citrus twang with a medium strength kicking in.  Construction was flawless dropping another solid ash at the nub.
