Prensado Robusto by Alec Bradley


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.
