alecamericanWelcome back folks! Today’s cigar reviews will take a closer look at the Alec Bradley American Sun Grown Robusto and the Trinidad Robusto.

Alec Bradley American Sun Grown Robusto

The Alec Bradley American Sun Grown is a follow-up to the popular Alec Bradley American Classic. Brand owner Alan Rubin blended the American Sun Grown to offer more of a bold and spicy smoking experience than its predecessor. I enjoyed the American Classic and have enjoyed Alec Bradley cigars overall, so I am expecting good things out of this American Sun Grown Robusto that I am about to light up.

The Alec Bradley American Sun Grown Robusto measures 5 x 50. It’s just one of several sizes in the line that also includes the 5 1/2 x 42 Corona, 6 x 50 Toro, 6 1/8 x 52 Torpedo, 6 x 60 Gordo, and the 7 x 48 Churchill. The cigar’s filler is a blend of Nicaraguan Esteli and Condega tobaccos. The binder is also Nicaraguan, but from the nation’s Jalapa region. Last, but not least is the Sun Grown Habano wrapper, which also comes from the Jalapa region. As you can tell, this is a Nicaraguan puro, since all of the cigar’s tobaccos come from the fertile Central American country. As far as strength is concerned, the American Sun Grown is considered to be full-bodied.

As I take my first glance at the Alec Bradley American Sun Grown Robusto, my eyes immediately move toward the large and attractive decorative band. It features the Alec Bradley American Sun Grown name over some very detailed graphics. It’s definitely a band worth looking over, and the folks at Alec Bradley did a great job with its design. As for the cigar itself, it’s quite oily and has a dark brown wrapper. I notice a few medium-sized veins, but no major imperfections. The Robusto appears to be well-packed with tobacco and free of any soft spots. I get a pre-light aroma of cedar, while the cold taste is sweet.

After lighting the Alec Bradley American Sun Grown Robusto with ease, it burns like a charm. There are no touch-ups or re-lights needed throughout the smoking experience. The draw is perfect and the ash is solid and gray in nature. There’s plenty of smoke that’s produced.
