Magic Toast Robusto by Alec Bradley

What a pleasant surprise today on my first day back after two months of convalescing when I was presented the Alec Bradley Magic Toast; a gift from Rian Walker.

As my second cigar of the day, I felt I was primed for this… and… Wow! Not what I expected.

From the Fellas at Cigar Dojo
“Honduran wrapper covers a double binder of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos; the fillers are also Honduran and Nicaraguan.”

My cold draw gave me dark rich soft barnyard and cocoa from this oily wrapper. Once lit… deep rich earthy tobacco and chewy smoke welcomed me. I made the correct decision to blaze this cigar.

At the first third along with the earthy flavors were rich molasses present to at least the halfway point with coffee and dark chocolate and there’s something fruity in the background too.

At the halfway point, the flavors ramp up with more coffee and earth with a nice peppery retrohale. As I smoke more the body increases and something woody and floral appears.

I’m diggin’ this cigar! It gave me more than I expected so, I’ll have to search for some more of these for the TupperDor.
