Do you remember playing those anagram games where you get a jumble of lettered tiles and need to form words? Well we do, and so this week we decided to have a little fun, although we're fairly certain we made up our own rules for the sake of naming this new sampler. In "BRAVO" the "AB" is for Alec Bradley, "O" is for Oliva Serie O, "V" is for Villiger La Vencedora, and then there's the "R", which is due to all 15 of these cigars being offered in a Robusto format. (Told you we made up our own rules...)
In all seriousness, however, BRAVO is definitely an appropriate name for this sampler because all three of these blends have received an outstanding '94' rating from Cigar Aficionado, making this one sampler something you shouldn't pass up.
Each BRAVO Sampler contains five of the following three blends:
Alec Bradley Tempus Quadrum (5.5"x55) -- Full bodied with a medium finish, you'll experience notes of pepper and earth with nuances of espresso in the aftertaste. A mix of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos, the Tempus was the #5 Cigar of the Year in 2017.
Villiger La Vencedora Robusto (5.0"x50) -- A full-bodied, full-flavored Nicaraguan puro with creamy notes of coffee, nougat, roasted nuts, and even lightly-salted sunflower seeds. The smoke is thick, chewy, and plentiful, and leaves a slight sweetness on the long, satisfying finish.
Oliva Serie 'O' Robusto (5.0"x50) -- The original Oliva blend to hit the market, receiving some of the highest ratings from Cigar Aficionado at its debut, noting. The all-Nicaraguan tobaccos used give this cigar a medium, well-rounded body and aroma. Expect notes of dried cherries, cocoa, and cedar, which punctuate a salty, earthy flavor.
