As a fan of the AB line for some time, I gravitate toward the Black Market as a go to cigar when I want to relax and read, have a drink, pretty much anytime. The cigars are always well made, draw smoothly and offer an interesting palate.

I picked up one of these at a local purveyor because of how much I have heard about them. I am a fan of the medium strength gar because of the difficulty in finding balance between strength and flavor is a good indicator of the quality of a cigar label. And finding the perfect balance is heaven to me. I have heard a lot about the quality of Alec Bradley and, from the start, this cigar didn't disappoint. Just the appearance of the stick is beautiful and screams quality. Chocolate brown without any, and I mean any, soft or hard spots and a flawless wrapper without any discolorations. Upon lighting, I found the draw a tad bit tight but not eye-crossing and the burn was consistent and even producing a tenacious, white, flakey ash without any canoeing or tunneling. I did, however, have to re-light it several times but that was my fault and not the gar's as I was deep in discussion while smoking it. From the unlit smell of the cigar through the shaking and pounding at the end to get as much smoke out of it as possible, it is true to it's name and billing: Cubanesque. I have had a Cuban Montecristo #2 and others and this thing tastes every bit as Cuban as those did. The only knock I have on it in the flavor department is that within 2 inches of the band, it began to take on a bit of harshness and I remember being angry about it because it had been such a great smoke until then. And then I remembered that I only paid $7.00 for it. The harshness that I described is normally eliminated on sticks costing $10.00 or more. But the general flavors remained consistent all the way through the last embers of it. A truely fantastic cigar for the price and in my rating system, I would put it at a 91, overall.

I received 5 of these today in a 10 pack I ordered along with 5 Black Abyss. Had to put the fire to one. Let me be just stright. This is a GREAT smoking cigar all around. I can't wait until they go on sale again. For now, I'll have to pace myself with the other 4.
A decent smoke

To me this cigar was just overall bland it had excellent construction but a decent flavor upon the prelight draw is a black pepper with a bland tobacco flavor and undertones of cream the d raw was perfect the flavor consistent and the burn spot on a decent stick but just too consistently bland for me too enjoy
