Alec Bradley Black Market

Robusto/ 5.25 × 52

As soon as you light up a Black Market Blend cigar, you’ll understand where it gets its name. A premium handmade smoke, this blend is pretty rare; the tobacco is Honduran and Panamanian, the binder is from Sumatra, and the wrapper is Nicaraguan. But a smoke this multifarious and this good is practically unheard of. The smooth, creamy rush of every draw is perfectly balanced with zesty dashes of spice and pepper, layered so exquisitely it’s criminal. Each component of its four-country construction brings a discernible element, and no flavor is left behind. It’s a good thing this stick burns slowly because I never wanted it to end!

Not too many may agree with me, but I liked the Alec Bradley Black Market better than the Drew Estate Undercrown Maduro. To me, they have similar flavor profiles, but the Black Market seemed to be a bit milder/less harsh and performed better. There was plenty of smoke and the burn was care-free.


For a medium-bodied smoke these are pretty strong. I wanted to like it but did not. The flavor was lacking and left a lot to be desired.
