Getting into the flavor of the cigar, it's not too complex, but it is enjoyable. The first third of the 750 offers up earth and some sweetness. This is joined by some flavorful nuts. Once we get into the Sumatra portion of the wrapper, pepper gets introduced. The rest of the cigar seems to lose some of its flavor steam, offering up notes of tobacco and leather. I would say that medium to full-bodied hits the nail on the head in terms of description.

While the initial impression of the La Gloria Cubana Artesanos de Tabaqueros 750 was positive, things seemed to turn once the cigar was lit. The burn required a lot of maintenance. This can definitely lead to some frustration and make smoking seem more like a chore than an enjoyable experience. The flavors were decent, but nothing extraordinary. As far as the price is concerned, at around $9 per stick, the 750 seems to be too expensive. Sure, the double wrappers must have taken some skilled work to accomplish, but I have to think there are better options at that price point. You can look for it in boxes of 25 and packs of five, if interested.

The La Gloria Cubana Artesanos de Tabaqueros 750 receives a rating of three out of four stars.

Alec Bradley Vice Press 6T4

Alec Bradley's Vice Press line was created with fans of large ring gauges in mind. The thinnest cigar in the line has a ring gauge of 60, which could discourage some smokers from even giving it a try. Each cigar in the line is box-pressed with an apparatus similar to a vice, hence the name.

The Vice Press 6T4 measures 5 x 64. Alec Bradley produces the line in two other sizes as well: the 6 1/2 x 62 “6T2” and 7 x 60 “6T.” As you can see, each of the sizes is cleverly named after its ring gauge and makes sense when spoken aloud. The cigar's filler is a blend of tobaccos from Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua. Its binder is Costa Rican, and a Nicaraguan wrapper finishes things off. The Vice Press line is listed as being medium-bodied in strength.
