altWe hope you had a great weekend, and we are getting your week started off with reviews of two very solid cigars.  We will begin with the smooth and tasty Alec Bradley Maxx Brazil and finish up with the bold and flavorful La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Reserva.

Alec Bradley Maxx Brazil Robusto

If you are familiar with Alec Bradley cigars, then you probably have heard of the brand’s Maxx line.  Actually, in addition to the traditional Maxx, there’s also a Maxx Connecticut, plus this Maxx Brazil that I will be sampling today.  Unlike the traditional Maxx and the Maxx Connecticut, the Maxx Brazil is a cigar that’s exclusive to the folks at Cigars International.  It originally started as part of a 5-Star Sampler pack from the retailer, but once that ran out, customers demanded more of the Maxx Brazil to be produced.  The company complied, and the Maxx Brazil is now offered in various sizes as a standalone cigar.

The Alec Bradley Maxx Brazil Robusto measures 5 x 50.  Other sizes in the Maxx Brazil line include the 5.5 x 42 Corona, 6 x 54 Toro, 6 x 60 Double Toro, 6.1 x 52 Torpedo, and the 7 x 48 Churchill.  The cigar features a filler blend of Colombian, Honduran, Mexican, and Nicaraguan tobaccos, just like the original Maxx.  The binder, however, is Brazilian Mata Fina and the wrapper is Brazilian Habano.  The strength of the Maxx Brazil is said to hover around the medium-bodied range.

The decorative band is the very first thing that pops out concerning the Alec Bradley Maxx Brazil's appearance. It features the Alec Bradley Maxx Brazil name over an aqua-like color that really attracts attention. The band is sizable and truly adds some exuberance to the cigar's look. The Maxx Brazil's wrapper is chocolate brown and has somewhat of an oily sheen. There are a couple of small veins but no extensive imperfections. The cigar is really smooth to the touch and there are absolutely no soft spots. The pre-light aroma is of cedar. The cold taste is a bit spicy.

There are no negative issues to report with regards to the Maxx Brazil's burn. It lights with ease and generates thick aromatic smoke. The burn is straight for the most part and just requires a couple of minor touch-ups along the way. Re-lights are unneeded. The ash is on the flaky side and is gray in color.
