Alec Bradley’s newest line, the Alec Bradley Black Market, might sound like a shady, under-the-radar release that may or may not have fallen off of some truck somewhere. This, though, couldn’t be further from the truth. Alec Bradley Black Market is made at the highly-regarded Tabacos de Oriente factory in Danli, Honduras with some of the best tobaccos available—a dark, oily wrapper from Nicaragua’s Jalapa region, a sweet, spicy Sumatra binder, and meticulously-aged filler leaves from Honduras and Panama. Simply put, these might be the least sketchy cigars we’ve seen in a while.
Packaged in crate-style boxes of 22 and adorned with oversized foot bands, Alec Bradley Black Market is as well-presented as it is delicious. What you have here is a rich, medium-bodied smoke with notes of cocoa, cedar, rich tobacco, and a slight hint of dried fruit sweetness on the finish. Perfect construction allows for the perfect amount of smoke to come through, and also ensures an even burn from start to finish. Alec Bradley Black Market is one of 2011’s most talked-about cigars—get yours here and find out why!
