Team Cigar Review: Alec & Bradley Kintsugi Robusto

The Alec & Bradley Kintsugi Robusto was an overall average tasting experience. The overall feel was, there's nothing off-putting about the cigar and technically (burn and draw), it performed well. But I wanted more than an average array of flavors of cedar, hay and nuts. I wanted fuller flavors in spice, earth and sweetness.

Upon initial draw of the Alec and Bradley Gatekeeper Robusto, you know what you're in for. It's a bold and hefty delivery of flavors centered around red pepper spice, meatiness, cedar and sharp minerals with a medium plus strength to match. All in all, solid sophomore release by Alec and Bradley.

The profile on the Blind Faith by Alec & Bradley Robusto is more nuanced and subtle than many other offerings from their portfolio. The blend seems focused on sweetness, chocolate and cedar, leaving the spices and pepper to serve as accent notes. The strength was largely medium throughout with the flavors approaching medium-full at times.
