The Black Market Gordo Toro is an aptly named cigar. When lit, it emits immense plumes of earthy smoke, which are pleasant and can fill a home in minutes. The cigar is made with tobaccos from four different nations, all of which are known for their tobacco around the world. The filler is made with Honduran and Panamanian tobaccos, which are artfully blended together and then bound with a Sumatran binder. The wrapper is a dark Maduro grown in Nicaragua, which gives the cigar that dark, medium body with a little bit of oiliness. The whole package comes together to make a cigar that is delicious, dark, and with earthy and peppery flavor to it, a cigar you can enjoy again and again.
The Alec Bradley Black Market Gordo is available in your local cigar shop, or your favorite online cigar shop, and you need to try at least one. If nothing else, you can enjoy an hour with your thoughts drifing away to Marrakech and the goods being sold in a dark part of the city.
