When we talk about Alec Bradley cigars, we tend to focus on Honduras. After all, their main factory partner is in Honduras and the Honduran trojes wrapper is the secret weapon behind both the Alec Bradley Prensado and Alec Bradley Tempus. But the truth is, Nicaragua is just as important a part of the Alec Bradley brand.
Nicaragua long-fillers are the backbone of almost all Alec Bradley cigars. And for the heartier Alec Bradley cigars, Nicaragua generally supplies the wrapper too. As in the case of the ever-popular Alec Bradley Black Market, Alec Bradley MAXX, and Alec Bradley Superstition. Nicaragua wrappers give these Alec Bradley cigars more earthy spice than the Honduras-focused Alec Bradley cigars.
And it turns out, we really like the combo of Nicaragua and Alec Bradley cigars. So much so, that Alec Bradley has decided to lean into their Nicaragua strengths for some Nicaragua-focused Alec Bradley cigars. After the Alec Bradley Tempus and Alec Bradley Prensado put them in the spotlight, these Nicaragua cigars have been some of Alec Bradley's biggest hits.
The first was the Alec Bradley Nica Puro: the first line of Alec Bradley cigars to feature all-Nicaragua tobacco. The original Nica Puro is chewy and spicy with big notes of cloves, nutmeg, leather, and dark sweet raisins. It's a big winner with reviewers and us “normal” smokers. The Alec Bradley Nica Puro Rosado is a more refined variation on the original Alec Bradley Nicaragua-focused cigars. The elegant, aromatic rosado wrapper balances out the spicy long-fillers for a truly elevated smoke. Chocolate looms large in the palate, along with baking spices, white peppercorns, and roasted nuts.
Those who can't get enough of Nicaragua spice should definitely check out the 93-rated Alec Bradley Black Market Estelí. This bad boy is an earthy, leathery powerhouse with a huge draw and equally big flavors of rich earth, weathered leather, spicy black pepper, creamy cedar, ripe raisins, and lingering cocoa.
