Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. Alec & Bradley’s Kintsugi also references the fractured state that the industry is in, and they would be better off if they all came together. The gold lacquer that binds the broken pieces represents the passion for premium cigars. Kintsugi is produced at the Raices Cubanas Factory in Danli, Honduras.
Rich citrus notes join hazelnut, wood, and black pepper in the first half. A vegetal aroma is added later on. The blend shines in the Corona Gorda size and highlights the complex, round and exciting flavor profile.
HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?
Those who scored the highest among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews get re-selected. These products were then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The test results are then compared, and the TOP 5 are created.
Since 2015, CigarsLover Magazine has focused on terroirs in order to give the right space to all the producing countries. From 2018, the TOP 5 were paired with the TOP 50, which lists the 50 best cigars without distinction of origin. Together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy, and the best Boutique Brands, this list will be published in CigarsLover Magazine Winter 2021 issue.
