Quick Smoke: Alec Bradley Maxx Connecticut

14 Aug 2011

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Introduced at the 2010 industry trade show, this is a Connecticut-wrapped version of the popular Maxx line. It features filler from Nicaragua, Colombia, Honduras, and Mexico, surrounded by a Costa Rican binder and an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. It’s a solid cigar that is constructed well, with a perfectly straight burn and a sturdy ash. The flavor is straightforward Connecticut: dry, woody, and a little grassy. Not bad, but nothing special. I expected more complexity from a blend that contains tobacco from six different countries.

Verdict = Hold.
