This is one of my favorite cigars, has been for the last decade or so. As price has creeped up over the years, I have looked elsewhere. When I saw the Groupon coupon and looked at the prices, they were very competitive even without the coupon so with it this was a no brainer. I will look to buy here again as they beat some of the big named distributors.
I have recently begun trying different cigars and found the American Classic Blend when I purchased an Alec Bradley Sampler set, Since I usually enjoy a larger ring cigar I decided to purchase this Box of Gordo knowing that the blend had the flavor profile I like, the large ring cigar is constructed very well and has a good smooth draw and very even burn. The flavor is not overwhelming or bitter, and its not infused with anything like sugar or sweeteners. The flavor is medium to full and has a richness that develops throughout the smoke. I really enjoy taking my time and lingering with this smoke for an hour or so. the flavor holds up well while sipping a nice bourbon on the rocks or pairing with a nice lager.
Unfortunately, I was not impressed with my purchase of the Alec Bradley Family Blend. I very much enjoy these cigars and realize they are being fazed out, but when the cigars arrived they were very very dryâ€¦ not much fun to smoke.
Thanks for asking.
