Ode to Alec Bradley

I've been a fan of the Havana Sun Growns for awhile. I tried the occidental double maduros and they are quite good. I was at the smoke shop the other day and I noticed they had Alec Bradley Premium Blends on the shelf. At $2 a smoke I thought I would try out a couple. They aren't the best smoke I've had, but they are better than some of the "super premium" cigars I've tried. Other than the Havana Sun Growns and the prymes - all their smokes are bundle smokes. They are good and cheap - a quality that you gotta love. I'm quickly becoming a fan of these for everyday cheap smokes.

I've been burning through the Havana Sun Growns quite a bit lately as well. I need to try some of the others AB has to offer.

The HSG's are a great smoke. Especially the first release Very hard to beat for the price

I like the Ovation line. A little more kick than the regular Trilogy.
The Ovation Maduro are great.

Oh yeah, Very nice boxes as well

The Trilogy Corojo Torp USED to be my favorite Sunday around the house smoke (Im a bachelor, I can get away with it )

But the Trilogy Ovation Corojo is MUCH better. It has a much more flavorfull character. Try them side by side if you get the chance.

Big Alec Bradley fan here
