Alec Bradley’s MAXX has long been a great, affordable go-to cigar. The line was re-imagined last year with a new band design and a slightly updated blend, which is a heady four-country filler contained within a Costa Rican binder and a rich, oily Nicaraguan maduro wrapper. The flavor profile is impressive: a yeasty, peppery base with notes of citrus and a pleasant cocoa-and-spice element throughout. This week’s selection is the “Culture,” a 6″ x 54 toro just right for the end of a long day!
