When you think of a black market you think of the kind of place where you can buy anyone. I always imagine a run-down building in Marrakech or somewhere in Libya, a smoky place with people selling everything from illegal substances and liquors illegally imported to firearms. A place where all the items for sale have changed hands so many times, it is no longer possible for you to track any particular piece to the person who first sold it.
The Alec Bradley Black Market Robusto is a cigar that fits its name. When you puff it, it produces copious amounts of thick, bluish smoke, obscuring your vision and leaving a pleasant aroma of the cigar in the air. The cigar is made with tobacco from four of the big cigar countries, a delicious blend that you will love. The filler is mostly Panamanian and Honduran long leaves, with a Sumatran binder to mask their flavor with its zest, all put into a Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper. When you light this cigar, it is all pepper and spice, slowly building strength as you smoke down the cigar until you get to a great and dry finish.
One of these cigars is a treat, so having a box of 22 is just fantastic, and something that most anyone will want to take part in. If you find them at your favorite humidor in town or on your favorite online cigar seller’s website, you will be glad that you jumped on them.
