Prensado Robusto by Alec Bradley

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 398: 3.0-Mile Cigar
 Alec Bradley, Cigar of the Year, Honduran Corojo, Honduran Trojes, Honduras, Prensado, Robusto I spoiled myself today with this 2011 “Cigar Aficionado” Cigar of the Year… What a treat for this morning’s 3.5-Mile Cigar Walk with this delicious and satisfying Alec Bradley Prensado in Robusto by Alec Bradley Cigars.

Right from the beginning… I was transported to the Prensado’s rich well-rounded mix of earthy, leather, black coffee, cocoa, and oaky tobacco flavors bringing a smug smile to my enjoyment on this morning’s trek.

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 129: 3.0-Mile Cigar
Alec Bradley, Cigar of the Year, Honduran Corojo, Honduran Trojes, Honduras, Prensado, Robusto I was pleasantly surprised this morning when this Prensado in Robusto took me every bit of 3-Miles on today’s Cigar Walk.

Truth be told, I was vetting this newer blend of the Prensado because I recently purchased some “Aged” version similar to the Prensado in the picture below (06/07/2020) that came from one of my first cigars purchased when I rejoined this Cigar Hobby. Check out the difference in the two bands; from the newer version I smoked today and the one below that I purchased in 2018.

I’ll probably blaze another one from the new acquisitions soon, maybe next week… Stay tuned!

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 77: 2.0-Mile Cigar
Alec Bradley, Cigar of the Year, Honduran Corojo, Honduran Trojes, Honduras, Prensado, Robusto I amaze myself or I should say… I’m amazed every time I smoke this awesome cigar in the “Prensado” in Robusto by Alec Bradley.

Today was no different as this Alec Bradley Prensado and I welcomed the sunrise this morning on the last leg of my 5-Mile Cigar Walk.

I’m down to my last few Prensados in Robusto that I purchased in 2018, so I better purchase some more so I can save a couple of these “Aged” cigars.

First cigar of 2020


Alec Bradley, Cigar of the Year, Honduran Trojes, Honduras, PrensadoI’ve had several Alec Bradley Prensado cigars since my return to the cigar hobby (February 2018) and I haven’t had one that disappoints.

Once lit, chocolate reinforces what I experienced on the cold draw, earthy tobacco, leather, vanilla, and chocolate greet me.

This is a beautiful cigar to look at and admire with its dark smooth Corojo Leaf (2006) wrapper from the Trojes region in Honduras. The Corojo Leaf is fast becoming one of my favorite wrappers.

The Alec Bradley comes close to hitting all my flavor checkboxes, so it’s still a “winner” for my TupperDor.

I’ve smoked a ton of these Prensados. I don’t know why I haven’t shared anything yet…

Stay Tuned
