Alec Bradley announces pre-release of Alec Bradley New York cigar line

“Both of my parents are from New York. They had a wholesale candy and tobacco business there for years,” said Rubin. “They worked hard, as my grandparents did before them. I felt that kind of history deserved making a line honoring the state that gave my family and millions of others a chance to make it in the US.”

The Alec Bradley New York is presented in boxes of 20 cigars in the following shapes:

Six Two  (Robusto) 52 x 5 ¼
Empire  (Toro) 54 x 6
Liberty (Churchill) 50 x 7
Gotham  (Torpedo) 54 x 6 1/8
Declaration (Gran Toro) 58 x 6

“We’re really excited to see the reaction from the media and the bloggers,” added Mr. Rubin.

He should be. The company just earned its second 94 “outstanding” score for the Alec Bradley Family Blend T11. All things being equal, the Alec Bradley New York cigar will fetch high expectations, but with a grin, Mr. Rubin offers a more practical and much more familiar observation:  “If these cigars can make it here, they can make it anywhere.”
