As for the Alec Bradley Crescendo’s flavor, I wouldn’t call it an extremely complex cigar.  The flavors that do appear, however, are enjoyable.  The first third starts off with mild spice and some earth.  Just as promised, the strength of the spice does pick up in the second third.  Some nuts and sweetness are also detected during this part of the smoking experience.  The final third features more spice, as well as nuts and leather.

The Crescendo Interlude is another solid cigar from Alec Bradley.  Again, it’s not overly complex, but it is quite pleasant.  I’d suggest the Crescendo to beginners or smokers who are looking for a medium-bodied cigar with decent flavor.  Regarding the Crescendo’s price, it sells for around $6 to $7 per single, but if you pick up a box of 20 it averages out to just over $4 each.  That’s not bad at all for a quality cigar.

The Alec Bradley Crescendo Interlude earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

SWAG SoBe Edition Infamous

The swag term, which is short for swagger, (thank you Captain Obvious) is one that seems to get thrown around a lot these days.  It’s also a term that meshes well with the whole South Beach vibe that is given off by the SWAG brand of cigars from Oliveros.  These Miami-inspired cigars are described on their website as being “a cigar for the new generation, Miami and South Beach style.”  Being from South Florida and having taken trips to South Beach myself, I can say that these cigars definitely look as if they belong in Miami and carry their name well.  As for how they smoke, it’s time to find that out right now.

I am giving the Infamous offering from the SWAG SoBe Edition line a try, which measures 6 x 54.  The other sizes in the line all have stylish names as well: the 4 1/2 x 48 VIP, 5 x 54 Lavish, and the 6 x 60 Ego.  As for the cigar’s composition, its filler, binder, and wrapper are all made of Dominican tobacco.  The SoBe Edition is produced in the Dominican Republic at Oliveros Tabacalera Palma and is said to be medium to full-bodied in strength.
