Cigar Coop Review: Alec Bradley Coyol Toro
Show Video: Episode 135
At the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show, Alec Bradley launched the new Alec Bradley Coyol land. This cigar pays homage to a farm in Honduras where the tobacco from this blend comes from.
In addition to the Coyol tobacco from Honduras – which is present in the wrapper, binder, and filler, the blend uses Nicaraguan tobacco.
This cigar is definitely going to have a Honduran feel in my book. It delivers notes of earth, cedar, nut, and black pepper. The cedar delivers some sweetness along with a subtle cherry note. The flavors are medium to full-bodied. The strength started out medium but did increase to medium to full in the second half.
I found this cigar improved nicely from the IPCPR trade show. It’s been a low key release from Alec Bradley, but if you like Honduran flavors, this delivers a nice smoke. I have been recommended by several people to try the lancero in this blend. As for the Toro, it entertained me enough to warrant a fiver.
