So after meeting an old friend from middle school at my new job and discovering he’s a cigar lover we got to talking about cigars of course during work. A lot of my favorite brands he’s never had much from (Crowned heads, Drew Estate and Tat, while I haven’t had many of his favorite brands (Alec Bradley, AF and RP) so of course we are gonna do some trades and splits but I was wondering what are your guys favorite sticks from these brands? I can remember having The Vandal which I remember as pretty good I can also remember remember the sun grown which I think was eh if I remember right. I really like all AF’s but just a brand I don’t buy much off and then RP last one I had was the sun grown maduro which was really good, I believe I had a 2003 vintage that I don’t remember much of.

For alec Bradley, I definitely like the Prensado the most by far

Haven't had a lot of RP"s, but the Edge is probably my favorite of the ones I have tried

For AF I definitely think anything in the Hemingway line is great, as well as the Don Carlos

AB Magic Toast is my favorite so far. The AF Hemmingway short story perfecto is really good. I only had a Rocky connecticut, and it was disappointing.

Used to just rip through boxes of them. Great smoke.

Now i prefer the larger vitolas like the Signature and Classic, as the Short Story is just over too quickly and leaves me craving more.

Have the same problem with a number of cc's as well

Personally the AB SCR (Select Cabinet Reserve) was my fav currently right now I'm grooving on the Lost Art and the temps from AB
I too really enjoy the Tempus. Very nice smokes with a unique taste compared to any other nc

Alec Bradley's Magic Toast is the only real stick I know from them but it is easily a top 5 smoke for me. Rocky Patel's on the other hand I've tried more than a few of but they're not for me at all. Though they have all the makings of a great cigar as far as build quality, they've all been too peppery for my palate.
