Maybe it's just me?

Cipher on 06/04/15

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.

Great smoke

Ezlvn33@aol.com on 06/22/15

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

Tbone666 on 06/21/15

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.

Thajebus on 06/12/15

Full of flavor, perfect draw, great construction, a absolute must try. A very rich and cream smoke with lots of spice and deep leather notes. One of my all time favorites always amazing.

Prensado Churchill

Austin Carroll on 06/10/15

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.

Craig Smith on 06/04/15

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.

Kind of a dud

JMoralis on 10/23/15

I like this smoke... Kind of. It's got decent flavor and draw, but not great. I think my biggest problem was the construction. It fell apart about midway through. Maybe I got a dud?

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.

Bowie cigar lover on 09/11/15

Prensado

aarontaubman on 09/03/15

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.

Favorite Cigar

Stmazak on 06/27/15

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.

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.

I think this is a tasty cigar that is vastly overpriced. It definitely has great flavors, but not enough to justify the pricetage.
