Since founding Alec Bradley Cigars in 1997, Alan Rubin’s unique, premium cigars have drawn the attention of aficionados and enthusiasts all over the world. From the ground breaking Tempus to the acclaimed Cigar Aficionado “Best of 2011” Prensando, Alec Bradley cigars are consistently among the highest rated cigars in the industry.

The core of the Alec Bradley Black Market cigar contains a rich combination of Honduran and Panamanian tobacco, a flavorful binding from Sumatra, and a potent, slightly spicy Nicaraguan wrapper. Just to emphasize, that’s an unheard of, delicious four-country blend. As soon as you light up the Black Market, it develops a thick plume of creamy smoke as the fusion invigorates the senses with a balanced combination of spice and pepper. A slow burn and dry finish cap the cigar off very nicely.

This premium cigar boasts that would sit pretty in your humidor next to its brothers, the Presando and Tempus. Try the Alec Bradley Black Market in your choice of Churchill, Robusto and Torpedo.

Great cigar

Tron on 06/08/15

This is a special cigar. No wonder why it had won the cigar of the year award a couple years ago. It has great flavor and a nice draw. I always have these in my humidor.

AB Black Market

B3210L on 06/10/15

I've smoked five cigars from AB and this is the only cigar I didn't have a construction issue with. On top of great construction the flavor was perfect with a great draw. I would buy these on most days of the week

For the pepper heads out there

Thajebus on 06/12/15

Well constructed stick that is quite the pepper bomb. Put of decent smoke with an alright but slightly snug draw. Biggest flavor here is pepper and lots of it, so if that's your taste buy this.

Delightful.

Slow burn on 07/17/15

Excellent cigar. I came in with high expectations for this cigar as it had been recommended by a friend, and was blown away by how dynamic the flavor was and how densely packed and tightly rolled the cigar was. Felt and smoked like a lb extremely high quality cigar.

Awesome smoke

Caleb on 07/13/15

I smoked it a bit too fast and it blew up on me about halfway through, but up until that point it was an incredible smoke, highly recommend.

Black market Churchill

Farmer_jay on 07/11/15

The Alec Bradley Black Market opens up with some rich cocoa, and coffee flavors off the first draw. The draw is excellent. During this third of the cigar the flavor is slightly sweet with notes of coffee, cocoa, spice, and a slight bit of fruity flavors. During the second third the espresso flavors really amp up a lot and pair wonderfully with a light berry fruity undertone. There are also notes of cocoa, spice, and a light mineral undertone as well. Into the final third the espresso is still building up, and the cocoa flavors shift to dark chocolate. There is a light bitter flavor . There is still the note of fruit, mostly berry, but a light cherry.

Black Market: My first Alec Bradley and one of my favorite cigars!

Nathan Caldwell on 08/19/15

Rich, deep, yet sweet cocoa notes and peppery. Smoke is rich and creamy. Draw is slightly snug, but perfect for me. Slight strength kick in last third. Good hour and a half smoke!

Craig Smith on 06/04/15

Another goto in my humi that i usually find for less than 7 bucks. AB stick are always in my box for a reason, they are quality through and through. I hold them lower than most at around 62 and they burn like a forest fire.

Over hyped?

Cipher on 06/04/15

Well it is consistent. I gave it a try twice, but wasn't impressed. Its got a great flavor, but doesn't change. It stayed the same throughout the cigar. If you don't mind a cigar that doesn't transition then you will enjoy this one.

Black market is a solid cigar.

ThatCOprep on 06/24/15

I'm not a huge Alec Bradley fan but the black market line is pretty good. Some good spicy flavors and wood mixed in with just a hint of cream. Can be found for great prices sometimes.

Ezlvn33@aol.com on 06/22/15

The blackmarket was a great cigar that burned well and even not hot produced lots of white thick smoke with ample flavors that satisfied my after dinner craving the packaging was rustic but the cigar was elegant

great

t_dub on 06/25/15

I was gifted a box of these from a friend. The box is cool and unique and it's a great idea for a gift. I would say it's a medium body but that can go up or down as consistency isn't perfect. They are very flavorful and a great price from JR.

Black market

Whitebrow on 06/14/15

This cigar had a lot of pepper flavor on the start and continued through the second third of the cigar. Not too bad on price, but not overly complex or dimensional. I'd like to try this one with the candela wrapper

AB Black Market

pawn89 on 06/03/15

I definitely enjoy the Black Market, though I think the smaller sizes are better. The larger ones tend to leave my mouth feeling a little dry from the wood and pepper notes.

Good pepper, bad band.

C Enjay on 06/09/15

The large paper band has been problematic before and has ruined a number of wrappers for me in the past,. But when it doesn't, you get an excellent peppery smoke.

The Black Market is a quintessential mid-full cigar with mid-full spice and some notes of chocolate and leather. Consistently smooth throughout.

One of AB's most popular lines and most consistent in my experience. These would be great for introducing a newbie to cigar smoking. Not too strong, but enough flavor to be a serviceable smoke.

Good budget stick

Im_clean on 07/02/15

This is a good starter cigar. Not super complex, decent flavor, but I've had just one to many fall apart while smoking. Not a huge deal breaker but does make me pause.

Great cigar

Blong14 on 08/12/15

The first thing you'll notice about Black Market is the plethora of smoke it releases. From first puff, you'll be able to create billowing clouds of thick smoke that exude a pleasant, earthy aroma. This is due to the 4-country blend. Inside you'll find a filler mix that consists of Panama and Honduran long leaves all masked with a zesty Sumatra binder. Finished with a premium Nicaraguan-grown maduro wrapper, Black Market expels notes of spice and pepper as the cigar slowly builds in strength. The long, dry finish, makes it a great blend to enjoy with your favorite hearty libation.

The cigars pretty much just another middle of the road stick the flavors are very consistent so it's probably better in a robusto siize then at Churchill
