Alec Bradley Black Market

Today I’m firing up the Black Market from Alec Bradely. This cigar was introduced at the 2011 IPCPR and features a four country blend of tobacco. In my opinion the last couple of years have been a great time for Alec Bradley products, so I was anxious to see how the Black Market fit into line-up.

Name: Black Market
Company: Alec Bradley
Wrapper: Nicaragua
Binder: Sumatra
Filler: Panama & Honduras
Comes in: Box of 22
Price: $7.40/stick
Vitola: Toro (6 x 50)

The Black Market did not let me down. It was a well balanced medium to full-bodied cigar with tons of flavor. I picked up lots of espresso and cocoa and some notes of wood and spice. The Tempus is still my favorite cigar from Alec Bradley, but I think the Black Market is now my second favorite, demoting the Prensado to third.

I strongly suggest giving this cigar a try. It’s box worthy to me, but it’s definitely worth picking up a 5-pack if you’re looking to give it a try.

Great review. I agree that these are box-worthy. I also agree with your order of your three favorite AB’s. I have some Tempus Robolos just begging for me to put fire to their feet. Little sadistic bastards.
