Alec Bradley Cigar Co. announced that their second entry to their 'Experimental Series,' Project 40 Maduro is now shipping nationwide. Project 40 and Project 40 Maduro are value-price lines but the original Project 40 scored very well in our blind tests and received very positive review from other outlets.
"It's a winner for me. I really enjoyed the shifts in profile, the quality of the smoke, and just how well it performed even with several areas that were damaged in transit. I'm thoroughly impressed with the experience and will be picking some of these up. " -Alan (Eulogy)
"This cigar would have rated much higher in this this category if it were not for the final third. The bitterness that crept in in the final third took it down a few notches along with the work it took to keep it going. The first two thirds shined as bright as the morning sun. The final third was more like a cloudy day with the threat of rain. " -James H. (Keikan Jim)
Alec Bradley has announced their Black Market Esteli blend will now come in their limited edition proprietary Diamond vitola. The new shape will be available in June and only 1,500 boxes of 16 cigars will be made in 2020.
"This was an enjoyable cigar with distinct, easily discernible flavors which fluctuated in their prominence throughout the smoking experience. It was aided by solid construction and a lack of overall boringness. While not presenting itself as anything groundbreaking, I would certainly smoke this cigar again." -Matt Cade (CADE)
"If the flavors of the first third would've lasted for the whole cigar, then this would have been the perfect cigar for me. That being said, this was a very good cigar that I would smoke again. Find some and enjoy, if you are a fan of Cuban style flavors. " -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
