Alec Bradley Bows New Maxx Connecticut Cigars

Reading Time: < 1 minute

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.”
