Alec Bradley Bows New Maxx Connecticut Cigars

Maxx Connecticut is blended with the same core of Nicaraguan, Colombian, Mexican, and Honduran longfiller tobaccos, and Costa Rican binder as the original Maxx line with a very flavorful Connecticut wrapper leaf grown in Ecuador. The cigars are also rolled to Maxx’s characteristic wide body shapes ranging in gauge from 54 to a 60 ring.

“Some minor tobacco percentage changes were made to accommodate for the milder Connecticut wrapper,” added Rubin. “The result is a silky smooth, rich tasting cigar that produces copious amounts of creamy smoke.”

Maxx Connecticut is presented in the following sizes:
The Fix – 58 x 5″
The Culture – 54 x 6½”
The Freak – 60 x 6-3/8″
The Curve – 58 x 7″  (Torpedo)

Pricing will be the same as the standard Maxx line, $6.95 MSRP for every size.  New band and box artwork will be released next week at the IPCPR show in New Orleans (August 9 – 13).

Mr. Rubin hopes the response by cigar smokers at the counters and in the online shopping carts will be as enthusiastic as the requests.  “We’ve always been a company that listens to consumers,” said Rubin. “After receiving hundreds of requests for larger ring cigars in a smooth Connecticut wrapper, this line bears that out. This is the true “Everyday Cigar.”
