Gotham Heroes Alec Bradley Robusto From Gotham Cigars

Gotham Heroes Alec Bradley RobustoTonight’s featured cigar is a great bargain cigar from Gotham Cigars, an internet retailer that’s been around for quite a long time.  I was thinking they were around since the early ’00s, and I look at their website and saw 2001, so I managed to remember something I guess. I’ve made purchases from them in the past and they went well.  They recently presented their Gotham Heroes series, starting out with this great cigar made by Alec Bradley, the  Gotham Heroes Alec Bradley Robusto.  I smoked a couple of these this week and was greatly impressed.  This is a 5″ x 50 robusto with a dark Nicaraguan wrapper, with Nicaraguan binder and fillers as well.  This was another cigar that I smoked early in the week and was happy to smoke again, and it’s a rare thing when I smoke the same cigar twice in a row.  In addition to the rich, dark hot cocoa flavors, there was a unique spice there too, as well as an almost toasty flavor.  The two samples I smoked also burned well, one with a punch cut, and one with a regular straight cut. I like these enough that I may take advantage of the introductory offer they have, an unbeatable $9.99 for a five pack, with shipping included.  I’m sure this isn’t the regular price, because $2 a piece is just too inexpensive for what you get in return. This is a tasty, well-behaved cigar at twice the price, and is right up there with my favorite cigars from Alec Bradley.

 

That’s all for now, until the next time,

    $2.00 for an AB made cigar? Such a deal !!! I really love that orangish color on the band. It makes a dark wrapper look even better !!!

    $2 for a long fill Nicaraguan puro is very rare in today’s market. Either they werent moving, they are discontinuing them, or Gotham cigars is just that bad ass! Thanks for the heads up Craig!
