Tasting Notes

Alec Bradley Project 40

Tasting Notes: The Alec Bradley Project 40 Toro

Now that we've gone into the background of the cigar, it is time to get into the tasting notes. The Alec Bradley Project 40 has been very highly acclaimed since its initial release in 2019. In fact, Cigar Aficionado gave it a 93 rating, which is truly exceptional for a cigar that costs around $5 each. The Alec Bradley Project 40 was even named a "Top 25 Cigar in 2019" by Cigar Aficionado. It certainly has a lot to live up to. We taste-tested a Project 40 Toro.

Pre-Light

Alec Bradley Project 40 Toro

The Alec Bradley Project 40 Toro comes in a medium-brown wrapper with light veining. It has a very slight oil sheen. There are two wrappers on the cigar. The primary band says "Project 40," while the smaller band reads: "Experimental Series." The cigar is quite light, though it is well-packed.

The aroma of this cigar is an interesting hint of carrot, though there is an exciting undertone of sweetness. The cold draw brings out the same flavors, only much stronger.

First Third

The first third is perhaps the best part of the cigar. The sweet undertone that was evident on the cold draw explodes into a delicious earthy sweetness with hints of raisins, almonds, and nutmeg. This bold bouquet lasts throughout the first third of the cigar, with hints of coffee and earth joining the flavor profile midway through the first section of the cigar. The mouthwatering sweetness continues through the end of the first portion of the cigar.

Mid-Third

As you move into the mid-third of the cigar, the sweet flavors that had dominated the profile up to that point slowly start to fade into the background. The sweet essence of the cigar ends up disappearing around the halfway point of the mid-third. Notes of black pepper and coffee begin to dominate the cigar's flavor profile, and there is a perpetual earthy undertone. As you smoke through the mid-third, brief flashes of sweetness add a dynamic character to the cigar's flavor. The earth, black pepper, and coffee flavors continue as you finish the middle part of the cigar and move onto the final third.

Final Third

The earthy flavors from the middle third of the cigar become stronger throughout the early part of the final third. As you get into the midst of the Project 40's final third and move onto the end of the cigar, the earth flavor becomes dominant. Right at the end of the cigar, notes of raisin and almonds creep back into the flavor profile.

The Alec Bradley Project 40 is a Premium Cigar at a Great Price

Alec Bradley Project 40 Toro

While there are better cigars out there, there may not be a better cigar at this price point. As Cigar Aficionado said, this cigar has a level of quality seen in cigars that cost twice as much. This cigar is an excellent overall smoke. The first third is truly exceptional with its complex and dynamic sweetness. This cigar could have been rated even higher if its mid-third and final third lived up to the first third. While the mid-third and the final third of the cigar are not quite at that level, these sections of the cigar are still lively and flavorful. The end of the cigar even brings back flavors of raisins and almonds that were first seen in the first third. The bottom line is that the Alec Bradley Project 40 is a top-notch cigar, especially at its surprisingly low price point.
