Quick Smoke: Alec Bradley Maxx The Freak

21 Feb 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Alec Bradley Maxx The Freak

As my colleague wrote in his October review, this monstrosity (6.4 x 60) features a medium-bodied flavor of tobacco and earth that persists for what seems like days. And that’s ultimately The Freak’s downfall: a consistently one-dimensional taste that often overstays its welcome. But with good construction and a reasonable cost of about $5 per stick, this Nicaraguan-wrapped stogie makes a decent golf course or barbeque companion.

Verdict = Hold.

    I love this smoke. Sure it's not overly complex, but it delivers a robust rich flavor and produces a hefty amount of smoke. It's a great smoke when paired with a great, slightly sweet libation such as Makers Mark.

    Big stogie, but hell, I got the time. I'm unemployed.
