Alec Bradley Trilogy
Case in point: the Alec Bradley Trilogy cigar line.
This is a revival of a cigar line from years ago. It was launched in 2002 and put on hiatus in 2010. Certain fans never forgot about it, though. It had something that made it quite memorable: it’s shaped like a damn triangle. Yeah, that’s right. Circle cigars are standard. Box pressed rectangles are also quite popular. But what about that other primary shape, the triangle. Could it too be a cigar?
Alec Bradley says, “Hold my cigar mold, we’re going in!”
So the Trilogy is pressed into a triangle shape and is sold in triangle boxes to drive the point home. There are three different wrapper varieties, and each one is stacked into a six-stick pyramid inside the box. It’s triangles in triangles, and everyone from geometers to Brazilian jiu-jitsu fans will find a familiar shape to enjoy at smoking time.
Company founder Alan Rubin says the idea came to him after watching a DeWalt saw the demo at Home Depot. Inspiration is weird like that.
Like many Alec Bradley smokes, the long-filler blend of the Trilogy is Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco. Then, a Connecticut-seed Honduran binder is placed around that. From there, you have a choice of three different wrapper varieties:
Exotic Maduro, featuring a Maduro wrapper from Jalapa, Nicaragua.
Authentic Corojo, with a Corojo-seed wrapper from the Jamastran Valley in Honduras.
Native Cameroon, featuring a genuine Cameroon wrapper from Africa.
The cigars are rolled at Tabacos De Oriente, a Plasencia factory in Honduras. Do we wonder if the rollers grumbled or had fun with the challenge of doing things a different way when it came to the Trilogy? In any event, these are tasty and rich blends that offer something completely unique that is sure to spark up a conversation at your next smoke session with friends.
