The Medici Cosimo appears to be well-constructed, and it lacks any major flaws. I would expect this much from an Alec Bradley product. A decorative band near the head spices up its appearance. It displays the Medici moniker in large font over a backdrop that I guess resembles Italy during its Renaissance period. The band also lets you know that the cigar has been aged for five years. The wrapper has a dark chocolate color with a nice oily sheen. There are very few small veins that are visible. There are no soft spots, and the Medici Cosimo seems to be extremely well-packed with tobacco. Before lighting, it has a cold taste and scent of delicious cocoa.

After being lit, the Alec Bradley Medici Cosimo burns free of any major issues. Its ash is light gray in color and solid. The draw is about as good as I could expect. The burn stays sharp on its own, making touch-ups unnecessary. No re-lights are needed either, making this quite the maintenance-free smoke.

As far as flavor is concerned, I’d call the Medici Cosimo enjoyable. It begins with a mix of pepper, earth, and cocoa in the first third. The pepper picks up a tad in strength in the second third, and it later gives way to more cocoa and delicious caramel. Earth and raisins wrap things up in the final third. Overall, I would consider the Medici Cosimo to be medium to full-bodied.

There's nothing amazing about the Alec Bradley Medici Cosimo, but it offers a very consistent and pleasant smoking experience. Anyone who enjoys Alec Bradley cigars or would like to enjoy one of the brand’s offerings can do so with the Medici Cosimo. At a price of around $4 per single, it’s an affordable stick that you can take a gamble on. It also comes in packs of five or boxes of 20.

The Alec Bradley Medici Cosimo earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.
