Tasting Note: In honor of a particularly fertile farm in Honduras, the Alec Bradley Coyol is named after a plantation of the same name. Brand owner Alan Rubin believes that the Coyol farm produces tobacco of distinction and found a way to incorporate its leaves into a tasty, dynamic blend that stays interesting with every puff. There are elements of Coyol tobacco in each part of the cigar. The wrapper is from Coyol, as is one of the binders and part of the filler. It makes sense that the Petit Lancero performed so well. The slim dimensions naturally emphasize the wrapper and give the smoker more of an estate tobacco experience, as opposed to merely a regional one. It's a great combination of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco, and scored 93 points for delivering an exquisite smoke. It's also the ideal cigar for those left who still enjoy slim sizes.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Apr 01, 2016
Score: 93
Malty and rich with a floral quality complemented by layers of cocoa, honey and cloves. The draw and burn are lush and flawless.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Nov 04, 2014
Score: 88
Rustic in appearance, this pigtailed panetela delivers a lot of smoke on the draw. There's an undertone of cinnamon and licorice before the tangy finish.
