Below is the sixth and last dual review in our series of 6.
Stephen: I was down in New York City this past week and brought this good looking corona with me for one of my smokes during the trip. I enjoyed it sitting on a bench near Battery Park while looking at the Statue of Liberty on a beautiful sunny morning.
The Select Cabinet Reserve has the same fillers and binders from Honduras and Nicaragua as the Tempus. The difference here is the Honduran wrapper which comes from Trojes farm. The SCR cigars are also made in the same factory, Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas S. de R.I. in Honduras as the Tempus.
Ed: The Alec Bradley SCR line of cigars (Select Cabinet Reserve) was released in 2009. The cigar has some interesting features to it; first, the wrapper hails from the Trojes region in Honduras which will give the cigar a naturally sweet taste in the smoke. The second feature is a double binder from Honduras and Indonesia. This double binder should give the cigar added firmness and stability.
