Team Cigar Review: Blind Faith by Alec & Bradley Robsuto

Team Cigar Review: Blind Faith by Alec & Bradley Robusto

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.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Black Market Esteli Robusto

The Alec Bradley Black Market Esteli Robusto started off with a pine note and a little metallic component but quickly moved to the core flavors that were presented for the majority of the experience. The price point is attractive, so fans of this flavor profile or of the Black Market in general will probably like this. For me, I was looking for a bit more complexity as the flavor profile was quite linear.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Prensado Lost Art Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Prensado Lost Art Robusto

This may just be the sleeper hit of the year for me. I recall the original release of the Prensado (especially the Churchill format) was a great cigar. This rendition carries forth similarities in that it is flavor driven, but the Lost Art version has deeper flavors and slightly increased strength.
