Robusto

Released in early 2009, the Prensado is Alec Bradley's newest hit and their strongest cigar to date.  It is a box-pressed Cubanesque style cigar with a triple cap head and a brand new wrapper.  This cigar was built around the sweetness and strength of the Corojo 2006 wrapper and provides a rich, balanced, complex smoke.

Pre-Smoke
Released in five vitolas, Corona Gorda, Robusto, Churchill, Gran Toro and Torpedo, the Prensado is a box pressed beauty. The maduro colored wrapper is oily with light veining. The stick is well constructed, firm throughout and is triple capped.

The wrapper scent is sweet and the pre-light draw was smooth but firm. A light cocoa flavor is apparent on the cold draw.

Burn

This stick burns like a smokestack, large volumes of blue smoke billow from the end. We love the chocolate aroma that appears periodically in the smoke. The burn is somewhat meandering with a thick burn line that wanders, but no major burn problems. The remaining ash is flaky and alternates light and dark gray in color.

The Flavorab-prensado-band
Immediately, this cigar puts out a burst of flavor. Dark espresso like coffee flavors, with spice and black pepper hit the tongue and back of throat within the first few puffs. As the first third progresses, the dark flavors evolve into a sweeter mocha coffee while the smoke turns smooth and creamy.

In the middle, the chocolatey sweetness continues to sweeten with the spice mellowing out in a medium to full body strength.

As the final third is reached, the spice re-emerges and the finish picks up some pepper. Throughout the cigar, the smoke remains consistently smooth and cool.

Alec Bradley has another hit on their hands following the Tempus, as the Prensado is smooth, complex and flavorful.

Other sizes available are the Corona Gorda 46 x 5-5/8, Churchill 48 x 7, Gran Toro 54 x 6, Double T 62 x 6, & Torpedo 52 x 6-1/8.

Suggested Single Malt Pairing

Ardbeg Uigeadail

Strength matches strength. The coffee and pepper of the cigar cut through the peat of the malt, and the chocolatey sweetness pairs with the caramel / vanilla flavors of the Uigeadail nicely.

also try

Springbank 14 Year Old Amontillado Cask

An amazing combination whereby the cigar softens and sweetens the flavors in the whisky, while letting the peppery notes come through.

Suggested Chocolate Pairing

Chuao - Candela (Smoky Macadamia)

The smoky pepperiness of the Candela really plays off both cigar and malt. Click here to purchase.
