Cigar Aficionados No.20 Cigar of the Year in 2011 with an outstanding score of 92/100.

This richly colored cigar is beautifully made and has a sweet and leathery flavor that turns toasty and nutty with a chocolate note.
"Prensado means a lot to me and the Alec Bradley story. Rolled at Raices Cubanas (‘Cuban Roots’) factory, the Prensado was first created to pay homage to the Cuban traditions of cigar making rolling the filler ‘entuba-do,’ triple capping the head and box pressing the finished cigar. Blended with proprietary estate grown corojo from the Trojes region of Honduras, Prensado would eventually be named Cigar Aficionado “Cigar of the Year,” propelling Alec Bradley’s trajectory into cigar culture much quicker than I anticipated."
