Once in action, the Prensado Robusto burns like a champ. The draw is good, and a nice solid ash is produced. The cigar stays lit on its own until the end, and touch-ups are hardly necessary at all.

Just like its burn, the Prensado is solid in the flavor department too. The smoke begins with a pleasant and sweet flavor reminiscent of the scent that was detected before lighting. The sweetness later turns itself over to some flavors of pepper that awaken the senses. A bit of coffee comes into play as well. The peppery spice flavor seems to be the most dominant one of the bunch and appears several times throughout the smoking experience.

Overall, the Prensado Robusto is very enjoyable. Is it one of the best cigars or most complex? Not likely. Still, for the time it was lit it provided plenty of entertainment. Its construction is basically flawless and burn issues were non-existent. The flavors were not entirely abundant, but there was enough of a change-up to keep things interesting. The cigar is definitely bold and lives up to its full-bodied classification. With that being said, beginners should stray away from trying it, as it is most likely too strong. Those who prefer cigars with a kick should find it to be right up their alley, however. In terms of price, a single can be found for around $9 to $10 each as well as in boxes of 20. Many will find that to be too pricey, but if you are looking for a new full-bodied stick to try then it's worth a shot.

The Alec Bradley Prensado Robusto earns a solid score of 3 out of four stars.

Padron Family Reserve No. 45 Maduro Toro

padronfam2

The Padron Family Reserve No. 45 was released to commemorate the brand's 45 years of life within the cigar world. While the cigar has special meaning for the brand itself, it has also been successful in conveying special feelings to many cigar smokers, as it has received extremely high ratings from popular cigar publications. Although the Family Reserve line is now available to the public, such was not the case in the beginning, since the cigars were only made available on a private basis and not sold for public consumption.

The Family Reserve No. 45 comes in just one size: a 6 x 52 Toro. The cigar's filler is supposedly composed of tobacco leaves that are approximately ten years old. The cigar is a Nicaraguan puro made completely of tobacco from the Central American nation. To give smokers a bit of a variation, Padron released the No. 45 in both a Natural and a Maduro version. The cigars are said to be full-bodied in nature.
