Alec Bradley Black Market Robusto Cigar Review
This 5.25×52 cigar features a dark brown spongy wrapper with slight tooth, minimal veins, tight almost invisible seams, a rich oily sheen and almost syrupy chocolate and tobacco aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with plenty of rich thick medium bodied smoke putting off flavors of a dry almost peppery tobacco with a smooth oily mouthfeel and finish. The first third shows the smoke output and body coming down just a touch while the draw opens up to normal. Flavors had a bit of smooth chocolate for a few minutes but dropped it by the end of the first third, just leaving a smooth creamy textured tobacco with a little pepper flavor and long oily finish. 40 minutes in the ash drops off right at the 1/2 way point, flavor is up to a medium body, smoke output has increased and flavors remain unchanged. Ending at 1:10 minutes the last third showed no flavor changes, only needing a quick relight just after the band. Thank you very much to viewer Cesar for generously sending this for review!
