Alec Bradley cigars are world-renown for their
lushly developed smokes, so it is only fitting that this scrumptious treat
should be named simply “The World” or Mundial. The Mundial Punta Lanza (PL) No.
8 is wondrous smoke that will delight cigar aficionados of all tastes or
The Alec Bradley Mundial PL No. 8 is thick 6 ½” x
58 Perfecto crafted around a blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos
which are held in place by a double binder of Honduran and Nicaraguan leaves. A
Honduran Trojes wrapper surrounds it all to complete a beautifully balanced
smoke of over an hour.
Deeply textured notes of spice, pepper, leather
and creamy cocoa perfectly gel with hints of dried fruit to make the Mundial PL
No. 8 an astonishingly satisfying adventure that is squarely planted in the
medium-bodied range, but has leanings towards the fuller end of the spectrum.
The Mundial series gained instant notoriety when a
sampling of the cigars was launched by balloon over 18 miles into the
atmosphere, placing them on the very edges of space. These tasty stellar smokes
have, however, maintained that fame simply by offering up some of the most
gratifying smokes on the planet.
