Alec Bradley Blind Faith

This Alec Bradley Blind Faith is brought to you by Alec Bradley Cigars. The size we chose for this review is the robusto. This cigars wrapper is from Honduras with the rest of the blend coming from Nicaragua and Honduras. You can find this cigar for about $8.95 in your local shop for a single and it tends smoke in the medium to full bodied range.

Construction/Appearance:

This Alec Bradley Blind Faith is dark brown and shiny from the oils. There are a few thin veins and visible, but tight seams. 

Pre-Light: 

Aroma – Chocolate and Nuts

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Tangy Cedar, Raisin and Chocolate 

After Toast:

First Third – The chocolate and spice kick this off with a pepper on the back of the throat on the finish. Once this settles in an earthy note comes out on the finish and pepper dies down to nonexistent. Medium plus bodied experience in the 1st third. The burn is sharp and ash holds through the third. 

Second Third – The Chocolate, spice and earth notes continues through this entire third. This cigar turns more towards medium bodied here. The burn remains sharp and ash falls at the mid point.

Final Third – The spice and a nice floral note comes out in this third leaving the earthy finish. The body moves back into the medium plus range and the burn remains sharp.

Suggested Pairing:

Wine – Groth Oakville Cabernet

Scotch – Johnnie Walker Green

Overall Experience:

This Alec Bradley Blind Faith is a nice smoke that really focuses on that chocolate and spice component throughout most of the cigar. The beginning and end really were fantastic in this smoke with the middle not being too memorable, but still a simple delight on the palate nonetheless. As with all the Alec Bradleys we have smoked the quality level is superb and it’s definitely something we would smoke again.
