I'm not much of a frequent buyer when it comes to premium cigars, but I took the chance with Alec Bradley Family Blend M23. I was impressed with the natural flavor and wrapper of the cigar. The quality is great and the cigars are everything I expected. The shipping costs were fair enough and I received the cigars within a few days. Overall, I'm quite happy with the Family Blend M23 cigars and the excellent BNB Tobacco service. I'll definitely be purchasing again in the future.
This is a fine cigar. Everything they say on the website is true. It is a good quality cigar with a nice draw and good flavor. I will say shipping from this site is great and customer service is excellent, these guys are my favorite tobacco shop, what else can I say? I love their products.
Even though all the caps were peeling and the ends are all broken during delivery....
the cigars are a really nice smoke. Construction is adequate and consistent throughout the bundle. The wrappers need to be tighter but the binders were done well so it keeps each cigar together for the duration of each smoke. A small number have green areas on the wrapper; this indicates a QC problem at the source.
The flavor is pleasantly mild and tropical with a hint of wonderful old leather bound books on the nose.
The flavor of these cigars is perfect for me, but I hate the wrapping. I keep ordering them because I enjoy the taste so much, I like that they come in a variety of sizes. I smoke the large ones and my girlfriend picks the small ones.
I looked all over the internet for this exact brand. Most places didn't have it in stock. Luckily BnB had it, and at a great price too. I ordered this, and a couple other different 20 count boxes. Out of all three, this was my favorite. Not too strong, but still has a robust flavor, I'm definitely coming back for more.
I recently bought these cigars and have to say that I am more then pleased with my purchase. I had been smoking another blend of Alec Bradley's and thought I needed a change, well actually my wife thought I needed a change. I usually smoke bolder blends, but my wife wants me to cut back so I told her I would smoke weaker ones. Truthfully I was expecting these to be akin to smoking a Capri cigarette, but truth be told I couldn't tell the difference. The draw is smooth and the overall flavor is choice. I guess my only real complaint it that they are shorter than I prefer. I with they had this blend in a six incher. But I will certainly buy these again, but if you come to my house don't expect me to share.
In terms of taste, tobacco quality and tobacco pleasure, these cigars were worth the money. Although I usually do not buy cigars in this price range, these were of great quality, so the price was worth it. The draw on the cigars was satisfactory, the taste top shelf. I have smoked various other brands of cigars from this region, and have found that the tobacco craftsmen in this area do a decent job at rolling a good cigar. After years of smoking mainly machine made, I have found the transition worth it; While not as good as Cubans, these Alec Bradley family blends get the job done. Especially when smoked with a good glass of scotch. I found the fillers to be okay, although I prefer my cigars to be natural. Although I cannot afford to always smoke these, when I have the money I definitely go and buy them.
I recently purchased the Alec Bradley Family Blend VR1 cigars to share with a friend. We both enjoyed them, although in my opinion the flavor was a little too strong. I really enjoyed the aroma though, and the price was not too bad either. My favorite part of this product was the neat box that they came in, which seemed to protect the freshness of the cigars.
