Alec Bradley to Release “American Classic Blend” Cigars

Reading Time: < 1 minute

“We wanted to make an affordably-priced handmade cigar like the cigars that were popular in America during the early part of the 20th century,” said Alec Bradley Cigars President, Alan Rubin. “Even with the SCHIP tax, the customer is getting a high-quality smoke at a very reasonable price.”

The American Classic Blend is presented in boxes of 20 cigars in the following six sizes:

Corona: (42 x 5 1/2)
Robusto: (50 x 5)
Toro: (50 x 6)
Churchill: (48 x 7)
Torpedo: (52 x 6 1/8)
Gordo: (60 x 6)

“Since there are so few people around that would remember what this kind of cigar would have tasted like, it was a real challenge for us,” added Mr. Rubin. “Eventually we found just the right tobaccos, and I believe we hit the nail on the head. The cigars have an excellent balance of flavor, complexity and depth. Cigar smokers can expect a very smooth, creamy smoke with sweet cedar notes and a distinct nutty flavor on the finish.
