Alec Bradley Family Blend VR1 Review

Alec Bradley Family Blend VR1 - 5.5 X 50. Wrapper - Honduras, Binder - Indonesia, Filler - Honduras & Nicaragua. Medium bodied.

Initial taste of cedar wood which quickly becomes very nicely balanced flavors of leather, wood and spice.

Second third of the cigar reveals more creamy leather, cedar wood and an increase in the spiciness.

The Last third continues with the creamy leather, spice and underlying woodiness. Hints of nuts as well. Nice long finish of creamy leather and spice.

Construction, burn and draw was perfect - very nice oily brown wrapper with a pigtail cap. Nice light gray ash that holds on.

This cigar was very good and I really enjoyed it. It is my flavor profile and although not overly complex, the flavors were more than enough to keep me interested and happy. MSRP on this vitola is $6.50 which makes this a good value. A definite recommend to try.
