Alec Bradley Family Blend cigars expands line to five sizes

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Alec Bradley Family Blend debuted last year in honor of the fathers of Alec Bradley’s three principal executives, Alan Rubin (President), Ralph Montero (Vice President), and George Sosa (Director Of Sales).

Blended at Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas in Honduras, the factory that also produces Alec Bradley Tempus, Family Blend consists of specially selected Honduran and Nicaraguan longfillers, plus an Indonesian binder, seamlessly rolled in a very carefully aged Honduran Trojes wrapper leaf. Cigar smokers can expect a medium-bodied smoke with a rich, dark tobacco flavor and subtle earthy undertones.

Following are the names of all the cigars in the expanded series and their suggested list prices:
D3 – 4½” x 58 @ $5.95 SRP/cigar
VR1 – 5½” x 50 @ $6.50 SRP/cigar
BX2 – 6″ x 54 @ $6.95 SRP/cigar
M23 – 7″ x 50 @ $7.25 SRP/cigar
T11 – 6 1/8″ x 52 @ $7.25 SRP/cigar

If the names appear unusual, it shouldn’t be so surprising. Many premium cigar manufacturers use numbers and letters for some of their releases. But since the inspiration for this line came from three different families, there’s more to the cigars’ names than meets the eye. According to George Sosa, the letters and numbers for each vitola refer to names and dates that are significant to certain family members. “We’ve become so fond of this line, we thought it would be interesting to add a ‘family secret’ kind of element to the cigars,” said Sosa.

Presented in boxes of 20 cigars, all of the new sizes in the Alec Bradley Family Blend selection will feature a pigtail cap, with the exception of the T11 Torpedo. The boxes and trays will also bear the signatures of David Rubin, Miguel Montero and Reinaldo Sosa.
