Alec Bradley Black Market Estelí features fairly basic flavors, none of which are dominant in comparison to the rest. Leather, earth, oak, hay and coffee are all present, along with a small amount of indeterminate sweetness that ebbs and flows throughout the first third. A dark espresso hued wrapper is revealed, fairly smooth to the touch and offering a generous amount of oil. There is a slight box-press visible and the cigar has some nice give when squeezed. The aroma from the wrapper is a combination of aromatic cedar, earth, leather, pistachios and cream, while the cold draw brings flavors of cashews, leather, dark chocolate, cloves and vanilla sweetness.
