Alec Bradley Black Market Vandal The Con

Black Market pulls a hat trick

Way back in 2011, Alan Rubin introduced the Alec Bradley Black Market to the world at the yearly IPCPR in Las Vegas. Since then, the medium-bodied stunner has gone on to win a couple awards, and spawn a couple sequels. First up, we had Black Market Vandal — a super-charged and uber-flavorful blend imbued with an extra-special ligero strain that amped up the flavor in droves. Today, we take a look at Black Market’s mellower side with Vandal The Con, the first Connecticut-wrapped Black Market. 

The crazy packaging and gray and green color scheme might make you think Vandal The Con is a gimmick, a cigar that spent all its time on marketing and none on the blending. But you’d be dead wrong. Vandal The Con is one of the smoothest cigars I’ve ever sampled from the AB crew, thanks to its silky smooth Honduran Connecticut wrapper leaf. Each puff delivers sweet spice, creamy cedar, and slight nuttiness – a most enjoyable combination, at a price that could easily demand twice as much.

Black Market Connecticut wrap
I like that it is a smooth and mild smoke. It does not smell bad either. My only complaint if I were being critical is that it starts peeling as you get close to the label.

They were a good smoke for the deal. I am bargain shopper and like to find those hidden gems in the deals. This was one and would buy again for sure.

The blend is very similar to the American Classic Blend which I adore! A great smoke poolside with a Lavazza espresso!

Rhinos review
The con Toro is an ok cigar, but I wanted to try it because it is AN A.J.F. stick and I love his vandal puro and his black market vandel. I am more of a maduro medium to full smoker for the past 35 years. AJ has some superb smokes. Respectfully submitted.

New Cigar Is Good!
Really a nice smooth Connecticut blend. The only issue is that bit seems to get harsh and tar flavor, otherwise its winner!

The Con
Good Cigar for the Golf Course , a couple had a funny burn pattern and required a relight though. I would probably buy again .

Great golf cigar
I bought this pack as a joe deal and it was a great purchase. I prefer connecticut’s when I golf and this is a really good full connecticut. Highly recommend trying this stick out!

This one wasn't for me....
Tried it because I LOVE Black Market Vandal. Not really a Connecticut kinda guy, but I do like some. This one wasn't for me. My friend who really likes CTs liked it, but she thought the beginning was a lil rough & bitter.
