Fine & Rare has been resting in my humidor for over 2 years. Sunday morning at the golf course meant it is getting ashed.
When the cellophane is yellow it usually means it’s time to smoke what is inside. I have a few more of these from the same batch and they will definitely be smoked soon after this experience. The Fine & Rare burned smooth and the draw was easy.
There was just enough of a leather aroma combined with a peppery spice to really make this a great cigar. This cigar is very easy on the palate and doesn’t leave an after taste on the retrohale.
The band includes information about when the cigar was rolled and released. If you get a chance to pick one or two of these up I don’t think you will be disappointed. The quality matches the flavor. I could see myself smoking more of these, but they are a bit more than what I would want to pay for a daily smoker.
I am giving the Fine & Rare by Alec Bradley 8 Smoke Rings.
