Alec Bradley MAXX The Fix
Size: 5 X 58
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Maduro
I decided to try the Alec Bradley MAXX The Fix, which was bombed to me by Kevin (aka kapathy), at the V-Herf last night. At 58 this was one of the biggest RG I have smoked, I tend to prefer closer to 50 RG size, but what the heck had to try it sometime. I paired it with a Dr. Pepper spiked with Havana Club.
Checking out this cigar it was amazing, a nice oily dark chocolate colored wrapper, some medium sized veins, nothing unappealing. It was firm yet spongy when squeezed.
The flavor of this cigar was very good. It had hints of cocoa and roasted coffee. I also got some caramel flavour throughout. The flavour was consistently earthy and smooth.
The draw was very nice with no major issues.
I only had to re-light once and for the most part the burn was except on a few occasions.
The ash was a nice gray with a little flaking, I nubbed it at the 1” MARK SO I WOULDN’T WEAR IT.
There was lots of heavy smoke, just the way I like it.
Even though I prefer smaller RG cigars, overall I really enjoyed this cigar. From start to finish it smelled and tasted great. I will definitely smoke this cigar again.
Overall Rating: 83/100
Thanks Kevin for allowing me to try this stick bro’
