In the first third, notes of earth and undergrowth emerge, with hints of mushrooms. A sweet but distinct note of vanilla is also perceptible. Black pepper remains very present in the background. Very creamy. Strength is slightly above medium (3.5/5).

In the central part, it turns to cocoa beans and black pepper. The spices increase in intensity and culminate into chili spice. Hints of honey are also perceptible. The strength increases, reaching a medium-full level (4/5) and the flavor intensity becomes very pronounced.

In the last third, vegetal notes are released, flanked by herbs. Hot spices remain well present in the finish. Strength remains constant (4/5).

Overall, the Alec Bradley Black Market Illicit gives off a very balanced and creamy smoke. The flavor profile is well structured and deep, and the smoke is balanced and has a good evolution. The intensity of the flavors is marked. Fulfilling.
