Alec Bradley Post Embargo Robusto

This cigar has a fairly light box pressed wrapper with very light aromas. It has a nice firm bunch and cold draw is perfect. Tonightís beverage is a Karbach Hopadillo.



Initial flavors are cedar and medium tobacco. The burn is a bit off; Iím going to give it a chance to self correct. The ash is light grey.



The first third adds a toasty quality to the flavor profile with some pepper in the retrohale. The burn continues at an angle; I will correct it.



During the second third the flavor profile remains fairly static; some complexity but still a bit dull. The correction took and the burn is now even.



Approaching the final inch the flavors remain much the same. The construction is fair to good with the burn issue. The complexity is also fair to good, just not much development. 8/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
