Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Prensado Lost Art

Alec Bradley Prensado Lost Art

This is a cigar review of an Alec Bradley Prensado Lost Are by Alec Bradley Cigars. The size chosen for this review is the robust (5×50 box pressed). The composition of this cigar consists of a Honduran Corojo wrapper followed by Nicaraguan and Honduran binder and fillers. This is a full bodies smoke that retails around $9.00 in your local shop!

Construction/Appearance:

This is a box pressed stick with a light brown wrapper, minimal veins and tight seams. The cigar is finished with a messy triple cap.

Pre-Light:

Aroma – Nutty and Barnyard

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Nutty

After Toast:

First Third – This stick starts off with nuts and chocolate hitting the palate followed by a nice pepper on the finish. Rich and robust flavor profile from start. This cigar settles in to a nice leather with the pepper continuing on the finish. Burn has a slight wave to it and ash held through this third.

Second Third – Leather continues into this third with the nut-like notes coming off on the finish. Peppery finish diminishes at this point. Burn corrected to sharp here as well. Ash fell just after the beginning of this third.

Final Third – The nut-like notes take center stage along with a charred wood flavor. A really nice touch. Pepper is picking back up on the finish. Still a full bodied flavor profile with a decent strength.

Suggested Pairing:

Bourbon – Woodford Reserve Double Oaked

Wine – Belle Glos Rose or Stags Leap Cellars SLV 

Overall Experience:

The Alec Bradley Prensado Lost Art is a beautiful smoke from start to finish. Plenty flavor along with great strength and power to really keep the palate salivating. Pairing with a stronger quality red wine makes the experience even better as they compliment each other very well.
