Alec Bradley’s Prensado Crescendo There’s nothing like a well-constructed box-pressed cigar. Not sure if it’s the wave to tradition or the way the tobacco is experienced but either way- it’s special. Alec Bradley knows it too. That’s why the Prensado is such an exciting companion to their collection of cigars. Literally meaning “box-pressed” in Spanish, the Prensado’s inspiration springs from a rare Corojo 2006 wrapper grown in Trojes, Honduras, located right next to the Nicaraguan border. And as the words of Marcus Valerius Martial so eloquently convey, “rarity gives a charm; so early fruits and winter roses are the most prized.” Therefore, the filler, binder, and subsequently the blend thereof, had to be perfection. Alan Rubin, president of Alec Bradley, finally went with the strong flavors of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos with an amazing Nicaraguan binder. This masterpiece took over six months to create and Alan notes his ascendancy over time as one of many perks to being a smaller brand. In an interview with Smoke Magazine he states, “Boutique companies are becoming successful because we don’t have time constraints.” The result the Prensado delivers is immeasurable. The robust essence of the Nicaraguan tobacco, when combined with the added intricate complexity of the Honduran filler, then finally finished with the crescendo of this cigar - the Corojo ‘06 wrapper- offers, unselfishly, a complex, flavorful, and strong smoke with an unexpected delicate, natural sweetness. It’s Alec Bradley’s most full bodied smoke to date. Well done. You can try this amazing cigar by visiting any one of Emerson’s cigars five brick and mortars in the Hampton Roads area or by visiting them online at emersonscigars.com
