As many of you know, Alec Bradley is constantly pumping out new blends. The Black Market is one of his newest blends that I have had my eyes on. When I finally got my hands on a couple, I smoked one right away and set one aside to do this review on. I have been asked several times when I was finally going to review this cigar, so I gave in a reviewed it.
The ash was a darker shade of gray and held on until about the halfway mark. The burn started out a little uneven due to the wind, but once I touched it up, it stayed even through the finish. The draw was also very easy and helped to produce a good amount of thick white smoke. The smoke gave of a very earthy aroma, but I also picked up the scent of coffee in the aroma.
This is a great cigar through and through. If you like the taste of black coffee, please pick up this one. This is definitely a box worthy cigar. I give it a 8.5 out of 10.
