As far as its flavor is concerned, I would call the Alec Bradley Maxx Connecticut consistent, but not complex. It is very smooth and enjoyable, however. The sweetness begins from the start and is met with creaminess in the first third. The second third remains sweet and creamy but mixes in cedar. The final third is more of the same. This cigar is medium-bodied all the way.

Overall, the Alec Bradley Maxx Connecticut The Freak was a good cigar. It was not particularly memorable, but it did go nicely with my cup of coffee on a Saturday morning. In fact, you could probably enjoy it during any portion of the day. The Freak comes in boxes of 20 and is priced at around $7 per single. For such a large cigar from a quality brand, that price seems fair. Give it a try if you are a beginner or a smoker looking for something smooth with a large ring gauge.

The Alec Bradley Maxx Connecticut The Freak earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

Gurkha Legend Toro

gurkha-legend

When a cigar line carries the moniker of Legend, it brings with it an inviting and mysterious aura. Such is the case with the Gurkha legend, which the brand labels as one of its rarest offerings. The cigar’s name alone has me intrigued, and the price I paid for it has me expecting some big things. Let’s take a closer look at the Gurkha Legend Toro to see if it lives up to my expectations.

The Gurkha Legend Toro measures 6 x 50. Other cigars in the Legend line include the 6 x 50 Box-pressed Toro, the 6 x 52 Torpedo, the 6 1/4 x 52 Torpedo Extra, and the 6 x 60 Aniversario. The Legend’s filler consists of Dominican tobacco. A Cameroon binder comes next, and a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper seals the deal. The special wrapper was aged seven years, and the overall aging of the Legend is supposedly set at eight years total. In terms of strength, the Gurkha Legend is listed as being medium to full-bodied.
