alecsunpic1 If you love full-bodied cigars, we have a couple of reviews that might pique your interest today. Beyond their full-bodied profiles, the Alec Bradley Sun Grown Robusto and the Oliva Master Blends 3 Churchill also offer plenty of complexity to satisfy experienced smokers.

Alec Bradley Sun Grown Robusto

Alec Bradley has offered plenty of highly-rated cigars to smoking fans in the past. The brand is known for quality, so hopefully this multi-national Sun Grown Robusto follows that tradition. Let's take a look at what it has to offer.

The Alec Bradley Sun Grown Robusto measures 5 x 50. If you prefer a different size, the line also comes in two others: a 6 x 52 Toro and a 7 x 48 Churchill. The Sun Grown has quite a combination of tobaccos, giving it a worldly flair. Its filler is a blend of Colombian tobacco mixed with Esteli and Jalapa tobaccos from Nicaragua. The binder is from Honduras. Last, but not least, is the wrapper, which is of the Brazilian Mata Fina variety. In terms of strength, the Sun Grown is said to cater to more experienced smokers with its full-bodied classification.

At first glance, the Sun Grown Robusto has a striking appearance. This is mostly due to its two elegant wrappers that adorn its body. The top wrapper is very large and is loaded with intricate designs. It contains the Alec Bradley name and logo surrounded eye-catching graphics in gold, red, and black. The band below it displays the Sun Grown moniker. It's much smaller but also employs red and gold as its colors. As for the cigar itself, its Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper gives it a dark and oily look. There are a few minor veins present, but the cigar appears to be smooth and well-constructed overall. It feels firm to the touch with no soft spots. Before lighting, there's an earthy aroma. The cold taste is of leather.
