'96' Rated. #1 Cigar of 2011. Yeah, it's that good.
Sporting a unique 2006 Corojo wrapper, Prensado was completely built around its limited, Honduran-grown wrapper leaf and earned a whopping 96 points by Cigar Aficionado in addition to #1 Cigar of the Year Honors for 2011.
Alec Bradley Prensado comes box-pressed and features a fantastic blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran premium long-leaf tobaccos. The blend burns slow, even, and exudes flavorful nuances of chocolate mixed with toasty notes of leather and earth. The first inch will leave an intense, spicy character on your palate before slightly mellowing out by delivering some sweet notes that are to die for. Enjoy this full-bodied blend in the afternoon or after your favorite meal.
Smooth, rich full flavor. Surprisingly smooth for a bold cigar.
This is the best cigar I've smoked this year. It burned perfectly til the last 1/3 and was mellow, but plenty flavorful all at the same time, leather and cocoa and nothing off or bitter. Definitely worth a go, I picked up a few more to age out in the box, but it was really good upon arrival.
I am just a very early beginner at cigars and am starting with premium lines, usually in samplers packs, but when I came across this one - The Prensado Grand Toro, it was killer.
It burns very well, draws great, and the last half leaves the best buzz I have encountered. This is a full bodied and tasty smoke, not for the weak-at-heart.
I think it is my new favorite.
