Magic Toast Robusto by Alec Bradley

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 49: 3.5-Mile Cigar
Alan Rubin, Alec Bradley, Honduras, Magic Toast Cigar, Robusto This morning’s cigar to bring me home from my Cigar-Walk was the Magic Toast in Robusto by Alec Bradley. This darker than night jet black Honduran wrapper came firmly pack with tobacco that delivered full rich tobacco flavors that dominated the morning air with its smoke.

This will be my fourth Magic Toast cigar and I think I’m ready to commit these to my regular Cigar Rotation. I’m thinking these are Box Worthy.

Alan Rubin, Alec Bradley, Honduras, Magic Toast CigarI don’t care what anyone else says, I’m diggin’ this $6.00 – $7.00 cigar… if it can be had for the correct price. I paid $9.45 for the last two that I purchased and that’s about $3.00 too much.

If you can find these for a decent price, I think they’re well worth the investment of money and time you’ll spend enjoying these oily, deep rich Honduran tobacco flavors from this hefty cigar.

The Magic Toast Robusto by Alec Bradley is a hefty firmly packed oily wrapped cigar that once lit brought me a mouthful of enjoyable black pepper.

After about a half-inch I took another snip with my Perfect Cuter as I was struggling a bit with the draw of this snuggly packed cigar… it worked. Dark deep rich earthy coffee, cocoa and leather are all there with a respectable retrohale. The initial black pepper flavor has tamed down a bit allowing for the other “choice” flavors to come to the front…. I’m happy.

Coming into the second third and the smoke is pouring out voluminous clouds of smoke with each puff now that it has had a chance to warm up. The tobacco flavors start to hit all my checkboxes of flavors that I typically look for in a cigar, creamy dark coffee and leather with a surprisingly sweet finish on my lips.

Trouble ahead: I’m at the last third and the draw was getting a little tough to deal with again so I soon discovered a mushy cigar… I wonder if this is affecting the draw?

I was still enjoying the deep rich flavors this cigar offers, but I was struggling too much to really sit back and enjoy this cigar. I’m hoping a few months of rest will improve the Magic Toast Robusto by Alec Bradley that I have left to smoke… we’ll see

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.
