At some point I will get around to trying every cigar that Alec Bradley has to offer. Raices Cubanas came to me as an add-on freebie, with any box purchase. I repeated the offer by ordering two boxes of my favorite corona, the incomparable American Sun Grown, so I am swimming in add-on stogies, four which are Raices Cubanas robustos. Alec Bradley is the master of medium/medium-full vitolas. So many options, all of them meticulously crafted & tasty as any mediums out there. This stick is an eight buck representation of what a Nicaraguan/Honduran two country effort should be. Smooth as butter, loaded with medium bodied flavors like sweet cream, maple & an earthy/woodsy undercurrent. With only a week of resting since delivery, it still performs well. RC is graced with a light brown Honduran wrapper, that covers a delicious mix of Nic/Hon long fillers. This is one handsome cuss, from the firm body to the functional triple cap, it is unusually well constructed, even for AB. Worthy of 90+ rating consideration, my one reservation is the price. My investment came out to just over two clams & four bits, which make them a great value. I suggest you find a similar discount & you too will love the blend & give it high marks, as I do with a 90/100.
