AB Prensado Churchill

A beautiful cigar with a perfect wrapper. Performs well with a perfect draw and burn. An earthy smoke that lacks the complexity one would expect from a CA Cigar of the Year winner. An excellent cigar but not a classic

You know, I did name my oldest son Al and he's just as strong

Airmen First Class Al McKiller, my 15yo half pint hard hitting son is the closest that I can even compare the Prensado to and I actually believe I love them both equally with a cold pint of homemade Oklahoma Wheat Beer. The perfect trio
Great Cigar at a Great JR Plus Price

I waited a long time to try the 2011 cigar of the year, and it did not disappoint! Took advantage of the JR Plus discount offer over the holidays and I got the best cigar for the price I have ever smoked. Can’t wait to light another one,
Ordered by accident, but thankful

Being new to cigar smoking and this site, I ordered the Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill’s (ABPCH5) not realizing they are full bodied cigars. While I much prefer mellow- moderate cigars, I have to say, for a full body cigar, it was quite enjoyable. Still a little too “peppery” or strong for my taste, but not over bearing or ashtray like. Flavor and burn stayed consistent throughout the night as I read a good book and drank a glass of water. Used a punch cut and liked the slow, but steady burn the cigar provided. I’m definitely thankful now I have four more of these to enjoy another day. I’d rate it a 4/5 star cigar, but classify it as a medium- full body cigar, not full as listed in the description.
Not too impressed

I wasn't as impressed as apparently CA was... Starting with an uneven burn. Much more spicy than anticipated... so much so that other flavors were just covered up. Its missing a lot of complexity. I like bold cigars, but this one is like a slap in the face bold, not a rich, complex flavored stick.

Complex cigar with several transitions. Fantastic smoke output. However, it lacked in strength and body. Was expecting a full flavor smoke, and instead got something closer to a medium mild. Had burn issues throughout.
Prensado Trial - Touch and Go
Crouching Dragon on 08/23/17
Surprised by the lack of memorable flavor and inconsistency in the construction. The flavor isn't bad, just unremarkable. There were three construction issues in a sample of five,,, Side runners, small hard stems revealed when cut, and slight unwrap near top of label. Not really what I expected in a stick with this rep. I'll not be smoking these again except as a gift.
