According to Alec Bradley founder Alan Rubin, “the Alec Bradley Magic Toast got its name on a night forever etched in my memory. That’s the night, I saw for myself, by flashlight, a crop that was beyond belief. Tobaccos I knew we would find a special project for. Under the stars, we cracked open a bottle of very special whisky and proposed a toast to our future. Magic Toast was born that evening. Along with a ritual. Toast the end of this cigar. Celebrate its beginning. And enjoy the magic!”

    Initial Thoughts: Part of Alec Bradley’s Taste the World sampler, today’s cigar, the Alec Bradley Magic Toast Toro, is one we’re looking forward to.

    After smoking the Alec Bradley Tempus Nicaragua toward the end of 2020, we decided to grab the sampler. However, after smoking a few of the cigars from it, I’m not so sure they’re all as good as the Tempus Nicaragua.

    That said, the Magic Toast is a good-looking toro. The wrapper is well marbled with medium and dark brown areas, and it looks quite delicious. Giving the cigar a quick sniff, the aroma coming from the cigar was that of pipe tobacco, rich, musty, and like molasses.

    With a guillotine cut, the draw was perfect.

    Toward the end of the first third, there was a fairly significant burn issue I had to correct. But, other than that, the Magic Toast started off fairly well.

    CigarScore: 3
    Brand: Alec Bradley
    Line: Magic Toast
    Size: 6 x 52
    Cut: Guillotine
    Light: Torch

    Wrapper: Honduran

    Filler: Nicaragua, Honduras
    Smoke Time: 78 minutes

    After the brief issue with an uneven burn, the middle of the Alec Bradley Magic Toast Toro is performing fairly well. The burn evened up (after a quick re-torching) and the draw remained perfect.

    Regarding the flavors in the middle third, they were of fermentation, kind of like a spoiled over-ripeness and sweetness, but not in a bad way.

    Final Thoughts:

    The Alec Bradley Magic Toast Toro is an interesting cigar. Through most of the cigar, the flavors were mostly good. There was a significant burn issue in the first third and another one in the final third, but the draw was consistently fantastic throughout.

    Because of the types of flavors and the specific issues I experienced, I think the Magic Toast, while decent today, could benefit from another year or two spent again in a well-maintained humidor. Also, I think the cigar would be more palatable at a $6-7 price point.

    For all of these reasons, the Alec Bradley Magic Toast Toro earns a CigarScore 3.
