The Alec Bradley Magic Toast Robusto brings the spiciness of the Black Market with nuances and flavor complexity that last all the way to the nub. Once the initial spice intensity fades, the cigar establishes a sweet and chocolate profile.
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.
The 6 ½” X 56 Ring Gauge Gran Toro features a silky smooth estate grown wrapper from Trojes, draped over select and proprietary tobaccos from Nicaragua and Honduras.

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.
