That flavor of La Croix has too much flavor for me. I prefer the plain. If my store runs out of plain, I will settle for lemon, and, after that, lime. There is too much essence in the other flavors. YMMV. I hope you enjoyed the cigar, which I am sure you did.

Are you going tubo? That seems high hat for you. Was this cigar a gift from a friend? I don't want to pry but it seems out of character.

My wife gave me a box of these for Christmas. It is a little out of character. The reality is that I am too cheap to buy my own (handrolled) cigars. They are pretty much relegated to presents at birthdays, etc.

I just bought three boxes of Alec Bradley Puck Churchills and I am smoking the first one. I usually smoke cut-rate machine mades because cigars are a rich man's habit and I am not rich. These Pucks were on sale for about $39 a box so I scored three. These are good cigars.

Look, I love my machine-mades but they smoke differently than handmade. These Pucks are tasty. I may need to stockpile them while they are still on sale at CI. The boxes are nice giveaways to people looking for a cigar box, unlike the boxes for KY Cherroots and other blends. There is real cedar wood at the base of the box and all the gold foil stamping on the edges--people love getting these boxes as hand-me-downs.

I am not a big Alec Bradley fan but these Pucks are pushing all the right buttons. They are inexpensive. They are semi box pressed, and they smoke slow. This cigar has lasted me about a tasty hour, thus far. When say tasty, I mean savory tasty.

Give Puck a moment's thought. You may find that you like them. Everything about these cigars is champagne dreams on a beer budget. I like them.

I didn't because it would ignite my beard. Would be a lot cooler if I did
