    Nice review…now how about that 12yr Macallan in the background!

    I haven’t tried any AB sticks yet, but I do have one sitting in the humi reading to smoke…sounds like another review.

    The 12Y.O. Macallan is my all-time favorite single malt. I highly recommend this whisky.

    Macallan is definitely one of the finest single-malt Scotches in the world, and one of my favorites. It goes great with premium cigars.

    I smoked one of these last week in the Gran Toro size. Excellent flavor. However, the burn was less than impressive. It went out several times and required relights. I’ll grant it was only one sample, and the flavor justifies trying it again. But at nearly $14 after tax in Maryland for that size and nearly $12 for the robusto, I except better construction for the price. I’ll smoke it again, but if I get similar burn results, I won’t smoke one again.

    Ok, I’m curious. Why do bomb techs like box pressed cigars?

    Because they stay put when you lay them down. We tend not to like things that move around while we are working. Thanks for asking Keith, you are the first.

    I am a relatively new aspiring aficionado. I live in Tampa, and accordingly have had opportunities to stumble across some great cigars. The Presnado is a new favorite of mine. The aroma and flavor are fantastic. Suprisingly to me, I did have to relight an hour into the cigar, but it was a small price to pay for the enjoyment that the Presnado provided. May God bless all of those who have served and are serving the United States of America.

    I have a five pack of these ordered and can’t wait to try them out. I have been a big fan of Alec Bradley for a while. Surprisingly, sitting in the middle of Afghanistan is a very relaxing place to smoke a nice cigar. And I hope no one else ever has to experience it lol. I believe I will take this cigar to “The grand Smoke” in Long Beach. Semper Fi Cap’n

    I’m glad you enjoyed the review and am confident you will enjoy the smoke even more. I am a Marine Corps veteran of the first Gulf War and recall that the big sand box can be relaxing at times, especially at night when it’s quiet. Just keep one eye on the horizon!
    May GOD bless and protect you and watch over your loved ones in your absence. E-mail me any time with questions or to request a specific review.
    SEMPER FIDELIS!

    Great review. I disagreed though. I didn’t find that much flavor in this stick. Extremely smooth but mild to me. My review below: http://wp.me/pSZbU-7C

    I recently smoked one of these (Corona Gorda) and experienced the same issues as “MountChuck”. It was the first time smoking one despite how long they’ve been out and the 2011 Cigar of the Year pick. I actually prefer Tempus over this blend. It was good, but nothing special — maybe my taste buds weren’t in the right frame of mind for this stick. Last third would not stay lit and burn became horribly uneven. Multiple touch-ups did not help, so the thing got tossed in the ashtray before it normally would.

    As a regular cigar smoker of forty two years living in Istanbul-Turkey, I can say that Alec Bradley Prensado is one of the best cigars I have smoked.
    It has all the positive qualities for a good cigar. My compliments to the producers.

    Nice medium-full robusto. First third a little off the scale but the cigar settled down and was an enjoyable enough experience My first AB. Would try again.
