Maybe it's just me?

I picked a 5 pack of these up to smoke with my brother. He raved about it, but to be honest I wasn't impressed. The burn, construction, and draw we're surprisingly flawless. The flavor just didn't do it for me. To each their own I guess.

The Alec bradley present was a most enjoyable 1hr burn that I'll remember the flavor was right up my alley the smoke was plentiful and the draw for me was near perfect wish I had more in the humidity just resting great smoke
great but inconsistent

Great flavor and very smooth. Nice rich flavors like coco coffee and leather. Well balanced with several translations. But like most Alec Bradley's there is a lack of consistency and I have encountered several with burn issues.

This cigar is one of my favorite sticks. Right off the light there is a nice full bodied spice along with some leather and creamy flavors. The spice dies down as you smoke it but the leathery flavor is not at all unpleasant. After the first third it changes to a dry woody flavor and then to a creamy almost chocolate flavor. All in all a great stick.
favorite of mine.

One of my all time favorite cigars. Definitely earned its rating and worth all 8 or 9 bucks you pay for one. Great flavor, great smoke output, some complain about burnlines. I just hold them at 62 and everything is fine.

It lives up to it's reputation.

A quality smoke from start to finish. The construction is great. In my opinion, it has more flavor than advertised. It's much better suited to the more experienced smoker. A must have in your humidor.

This one has some really great flavor as far as Alec Bradley cigars goes. One thing that I find is that they always seem to fall short. They get to that level of almost hitting the mark and then they level off.

This Alec Bradley prensado Churchill is a magnificent cigar of exceptional quality. A medium to full bodied cigar that will be produced oak and leather notes and will not finish hot. I like to smoke these cut them and finish them as a Robusto later. Outstanding quality.
Must try cigar

Man oh man are you in for a treat! This cigar is truly worthy of its accolades and is a real gem. I recommend smoking it indoors as it can be prone to going out and needing an occasional touch up but the flavor is out of this world.

These are bundles of full flavor dynamite. TThey're Alec Bradley's so you know the draw and construction are flawless. The wrappers are gorgeous. Very dark espresso taste. Not for the beginner or faint of heart but if you enjoy the full body blends this is as good as it gets.

My friend recently got a sampler which included these guys. After a little while of begging he let me try this guy. I have to say I'm a fan. It's full of booming flavor and construction to drool over. I'll pick some of these up forsure
Mm Mm mm

I had a really great experience with this cigar. Great flavor and construction. There were chocolate notes galore for me and I really didn't want to put it down. And it's a Churchill, so I didn't have to put it down for awhile!
Very Full Flavor

Very full flavor. Brought some to the beach and had my friends coughing because it was so powerful. I thought they were very flavorful and quite enjoyable and stayed together pretty well. Did require a few relights but it was windy on the beach. Very even burn though.

The AB Prensado is my go-to stick. I was exposed to the Prensado at an AB event and have these in my humidor as a staple. The Prensado is constructed well and with few exceptions burns consistently. I love the box pressed shape and use a punch to cut the cigars. The cigar produces copious amounts of smoke and has flavors of chocolate and coffee throughout the smoke. I have enjoyed this stick with rum drinks while sitting on the beaches of the Dominican Republic. In my mind, you can't go wrong with the prensado.
Ok but try the robusta.
Nickdagostink on 06/27/15
Prensado was my go to a couple years back. I smoked a 2010 robust I that blew mind mind with wonderful flavor and smoke output. The churchhills are a bit of a miss. Definitely don't let the churchhill be your first prensado experience.

Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill was the cigar of the year a few years ago. There is a very good reason for that. It's a grand specimen of cigar artwork. Well balanced and delish from beginning to the end. You need to try this gargantuan titan of the cigar biz.
Prensado is a Winner

This cigar sums up why I love the Alec Bradley brand. Draws well, burns well and consistently delivers every time. Produces lots of smoke. Complex flavors of chocolate, coffee, pepper, vanilla and dried fruit. One of my top five.
