|All readers of Cigar Aficionado should know the Alec Bradley Prensado brand. The Churchill size was named Cigar of the Year for 2011, the crowning achievement to date for the then 16-year-old Alec Bradley cigar company from Dania, Florida. Prensados are serious smokes, made in Honduras from an all-Central American blend of tobaccos, and they are gorgeous. Construction on the Prensado line rivals that of almost any other cigar. The smokes are finished with pressed, oily wrappers grown in the Trojes region of southern Honduras. The Robusto hits the palate with a flavorful interplay of cocoa powder and vanilla balanced by cedar and hints of dried fruit, making for a tasty smoking experience.|

Perfectly pressed with an oily wrapper and symmetric form, this cigar is a flavorful interplay of cocoa powder and vanilla balanced by cedar and dried fruit flavors. A tasty cigar.
Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2011 | Score: 89
Beautifully box pressed but tasters encountered burn and draw problems. This is a cedary, toasty and herbal cigar with touches of sweetness and spice.
Issue: Cigar Insider: Nov 24, 2009 | Score: 92
A beautifully pressed cigar with a dark, oily wrapper. It burns evenly but the draw is a bit loose, imparting strong and spicy notes and a pleasant tobacco finish.
