    These notes caught me off guard the first time, but I loved it! I always keep some of these in my humidor; $5.00 for something this good is hard to come by.

    I just ordered a 5 pack of these. If they are even close to as good as all the reviews I’ve read I’ll be ordering a box shortly after they arrive.

    Nice pics Arthur! That’s a very strong recommendation, I will definitely be on the lookout.

    I had the opportunity yesterdy to taste an American Classic – Churchill and was extremely impressed. Everything I’ve learned to like about a good cigar is right here. After searching online to fine them with no results, I’ll be at the smoke shop today to buy a box before they sell out.

    This stick is not only my first ABC-ACB (hysterical) but my first ABC. Could not have a more perfect introduction to a cigar maker and line! As I enjoy this cigar and read your review, I find your description dead-on except for one lamentable point. I live in Western New York and New York state (I’m pretty sure) has the highest gas and tobacco taxes in the nation. While the rest of the world can enjoy this smoke for ~$5, alas, I paid nearly $10 at my favorite tobacconist. Nonetheless, I am thoroughly enjoying this cigar. I’m sure I can find a box price online for significantly less per stick.
    I’m at the halfway point and the smoke is becoming more flavorful so I’m going to kick back, enjoy this gorgeous day and this wonderful cigar. Thanks for a great article and review!

    Joe, I’m smoking this bad boy right now. You pretty much hit the nail on the head, except for the chocolate (strictly my opinion). I can’t believe my tobacconist had to talk me into this one. This smoke certainly has the potential to be a daily smoke, and it pairs very well with a slightly cold Shiner Bock.

    So I bought a 5-pack of these based on all the blog hype surrounding the AB American Classic. I am def in the minority as I found these cigars absolutely boring. I found the draw was tight, smoke output was minimal, and the only taste I picked up on was smoke. I’ve smoked all 5 and each time prayed I’d get what everyone is talking about but unfortunately it never happened. This had to be my biggest disappointment of the year.

    Conn. shade wrapper? Conn. seed maybe but that doesn’t look like a shade grown wrapper. I am waiting for a 10 pack. Hope they live up to all the raves.

    I’ve smoked a couple of the AB American Blend torpedo sticks and I think I get what is going on with these. They are a mild blend that I can see some finding too mild and less dimensional than say a regular line Padron. I believe this is the point entirely. The AM Blend is suppose to be a lighter stick and it assuredly is. Is it good? I think it is. It has nothing sharp or bitter and at the same time I’ll admit it lacks zing or spice, but it is pleasant and every so slightly tasty. The wrapper looks darker than the average Conn shade variety and the mixture is expertly rolled because it burned true, held ash well (not even an accidental dropping when I wanted to let it go to 1.5″), and didn’t get overly hot as it was nubbed. Everything is just light and mild, if that interests you then this is a bargain. I like a simpler very pleasant mild smoke on ocassion and I will repeat the AB AM Blend.

    This is definitely one of my favorites. Took a few on annual guys only camping trip and they were everone’s Dave by far. Didn’t have nearly enough!!

    Humidor was empty, went to the local B&M for a few smokes (5buck range) and asked the guy behind the counter for a “creamy cigar.” he recommended this smoke, I bought it.
    I didn’t think it was creamy, quite spicy actually, but very nice. I have a box of 20 churchills coming in the mail with a 5 pack of robustos next week. I look forward to the sticks, if this is a throwback to the early 1900’s then I see why Gramps used to smoke cigars! Well done, Alec Bradley.

    Tried one of these the other day (picked a couple off an auction site for $2 each), and while the contruction and draw were good, I just found it too bland for my tastes.

    I then tried the American Classic Sun Grown, thinking a spicier sun grown wrapper on the same cigar is what was missing for me, and while I did like it better, still was not crazy about the flavor. I actually preferred the Famous Exclusive Alec Bradley Sun Grown as far as flavors go, though the contruction was not as good.

    I’ll mark it up to palate differences. Next time I pick up an Alec Bradley, it’ll be the Black Market.

    Had this one sitting in the humidor for a couple of months with a range of other single sticks I picked up for under $10 a stick. Wouldn’t say it was one of the worst, but also wouldn’t buy any more than the two I picked up. Burns well, but very bland

    Got the robusto in a sampler and with about 5 months of age its a darn tasty Connecticut. Good enough that I paired it with a helping of lagavulin 16 year isla. Tight draw from the light but opened up. Also got a little bitter towards the middle but likely the result of overzealous puffing. Now I want to try the sun grown! If I found a deal I would buy more.

    I am using this Cigar as an introduction for my business at Sporting Clay events. Suites a wide spectrum of palates and has been very well received by customers and prospective customers as well. I am glad to spread the word of this mild yet satisfying smoke. Will continue to use them to help me build my reputation in the industry while promoting a very good smoke.

    I will agree with JB as I also find these AB’s boring,especially the toro.Maybe robusto would be better for me but only when I want something to smoke in the stadium watching football etc…Also, where I live these cost as much as a Hoyo petit robusto Cuban or two Partagas Aristocrats (to give an example) that are definitely superior cigars imo.If these sold for $4-5 here, then I would perhaps think of having a few in the humidor for those football games.For $4-5 they are good and honest cigars.
