Feb 28th 2012 - Alec Bradley Black Market

Today brings us the Alec Bradley Black Market Robusto in a 5.2x52 vitola. I know I featured this recently but I'm too in love with this picture I took the other night to not feature it again. The Black Market was a new release by Alec Bradley in 2011. Alec Bradley yet again hit another home run with the Black Market. The Black Market sports a Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper, a Sumatran binder and has long fillers from Panama and the Honduras. Today I'll be providing a review from my good buddy Robby over at, Right off the bat you are hit with big coffee flavors and a sweet citrusy note with a dry sweetness provided by the wrapper. Then the big coffee gets hints of earth and nuts as it develops into the middle of the stick. In the last part the coffee subsides and competing flavors of creamy sweetness and tangy bitterness battle it out but balance each other well to keep the flavors from being too sweet or too bitter. Thanks for the great review Robby!
