Alec Bradley Cigars and Their History Starting in 1996

Alex Bradley Cigars, founded by Alan Rubin in 1996, is a highly respected brand in the cigar industry. The company’s commitment to quality sets it apart from its competitors. Using only the finest tobacco leaves from regions such as Nicaragua, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic, the leaves are aged to perfection, creating a unique flavor profile that is unmatched by other brands.

Rubin’s passion for cigars was sparked by a trip to Europe where he discovered the joys of smoking premium cigars. After spending years learning about the industry, he decided to create his own brand of cigars, and thus Alec Bradley Cigars was born.

Alec Bradley Cigars offers a variety of premium cigars that cater to different tastes. The Prensado line is one of the most popular, a full-bodied cigar that has won numerous awards and accolades. It has a Honduran wrapper and a blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran filler tobacco, delivering a complex flavor profile with notes of leather, coffee, and spices.

Another award-winning line is the Tempus, featuring a Honduran wrapper and a blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran filler tobacco. The flavor profile is bold and spicy, with notes of earth, pepper, and espresso.

Alec Bradley Cigars also offers a range of limited edition and seasonal cigars, such as the Magic Toast and the Fine & Rare. These cigars are created in small batches and feature unique blends and flavor profiles that are highly sought after by cigar enthusiasts.

The company’s commitment to quality has been recognized by the industry, with the Alec Bradley Prensado named the “Cigar of the Year” in 2011 by Cigar Aficionado, one of the most prestigious awards in the cigar industry. This recognition helped to cement Alec Bradley’s position as a leading brand in the industry.
