Food: Why get food involved when you’re having a great smoke and whiskey?
If you have smoked Alec Bradley before, then you know he does great work. The Nica Puro 1685 is no different. But handle with care if you are not a full flavor/strength smoker. First thing is how clean it tastes. Gives a nice feel with the creamy smoke, pepper, spice, and more subtle notes that my taste buds could not pinpoint. Cigar is about a low medium at this point. Pepper has now kicked in but not over powering the other notes. Going into the end of this smoke the full pepper kicks in and you know that pepper is the dominating flavor.  Alec Bradley does it again! I enjoy every thing that he puts out and the Nica Puro is no exception! It starts creamy and smooth and builds as it burns, the flavor increase at a steady pace so as not to overwhelm your taste buds. I would Smoke it again in a heart beat, a box is in my very near future.

Take a look at the review my father did on the same product, Alec Bradley Nica Puro.
