The flavors experienced while smoking the Alec Bradley Prensado are superb. I notice some mild spice at the start, as well as some sweetness. A lot of chocolate comes into the mix as well. The second third offers stronger spice, chocolate, and coffee. The final third is characterized by leather and nuts. I would personally label the strength of the Alec Bradley Prensado as medium to full-bodied.

As you would hope to expect from a highly rated cigar, the Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill is a quality smoke. The burn was not perfect, but it was manageable. The flavors were extremely enjoyable, and I was impressed from the start by just looking at the cigar. At around $10 per single, it is a tad expensive, but you get what you pay for here. The Prensado Churchill also comes in packs of five or boxes of 20. I would recommend it to experienced smokers looking for a flavorful cigar to enjoy after dinner.

The Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

Alec Bradley Occidental Reserve Churchill

Bundled cigars can sometimes provide a lower priced alternative to those that come packed in traditional boxes. While some may shy away from bundled cigars due to a fear of lesser quality, the Alec Bradley Occidental Reserve is one such offering that is said to provide plenty of quality at a low price. Quality and affordability seem like a good combination to me, so let’s see if this Occidental Reserve Churchill can deliver.

The Alec Bradley Occidental Reserve Churchill measures 7 x 48. It’s one of several sizes in the line, which also includes the 4 7/8 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 48 Toro, 6 x 52 Torpedo, 6 1/8 x 43 Corona, and the 8 ½ x 52 Gigante. Its filler is a blend of Dominican Piloto Cubano, San Vicente, and Olor tobaccos, while the binder is Connecticut. A Connecticut Shade wrapper completes the composition. The Occidental Reserve is listed as being mild in strength.
