- Taste the flavors of Cuba embodied in this Alec Bradley winner. The Post Embargo Toro comes dressed in a Honduran wrapper, 2 binders from Honduras and Nicaragua, and a blend of prime long-fillers from Nicaragua and Honduras. This medium to full-bodied smoke heralds flavors of earth, spice, cocoa, and nuts, with a slight sweetness at play in the finish.

A bit of a history lesson for you, cigar fans. Once upon a time, there was one place, one place very close to the USA, where we got the majority of our best cigars from. This magical place was called Cuba, and it was a land where tobacco and sugar grew wonderfully. One day, the communists rolled in, staged a violent revolt, and took over control of everything, including the beautiful fields of tobacco, and killed and imprisoned many people who were involved in the industry. A number of them managed to escape to the United States, and when word reached the government of what was happening in Cuba, the response was to create an embargo, barring people and goods from Cuba from entering the country.
Since then, it has been very difficult to get Cuban cigars into the United States, and it is also technically illegal. Under the Obama administration, it looked like these regulations may be rolled back, but Trump, a cigar lover himself, allegedly, seems to have paused those plans, much to the chagrin of cigar fans and a country that you could use the income from those increased cigar sales. This line of cigars from Alec Bradley is meant to mourn the closing of that door, and to hope for a future where we can buy Cuban cigars and freely travel there once again.
The cigar is a lovely medium-full smoke, one that pairs a Honduran wrapper with Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco leaves. The flavors are amazing, including the taste of spice, nuts, earth, chocolate, and even a hint of cedar, and the cigar’s band is a beautiful tribute to the hope that one day, Cuban tobacco will be easy to find.
