Standard circle cigars? Box pressed rectangles?
This is the famous Alec Bradley diamond press, now brought to the Gatekeeper blend.
Yes, you get the concept. This is a cigar pressed into a diamond rhombus shape. (And we know that thanks to the efforts of Mr. Sanford’s 9th-grade geometry class.)
The Alec & Bradley Gatekeeper Diamond cigar's shape is alluring. It’s like nothing else you see anywhere on the market! But WHY would a cigar maker do such a thing? Is there a benefit to it? We can confirm that it is a fun novelty and a departure from the ordinary. You’ll want to play with this thing while you smoke it.
More than that, who can say?
The incendiary Ernesto Perez-Carrillo helped make the blend for the Gatekeeper, Cigar Aficionado’s #7 cigar of 2020. It features Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco, along with an Ecuadorian wrapper, and has a beautifully peppery profile. Along with sweetness in the right spots, it helped kick off the new Alec and Bradley company just the right way.
(For those keeping score, Alec Bradley is Alan Rubin’s company. Alec and Bradley is his sons’ company. Guess what their names are? It’s a proud family, and as long as they keep making great stogies, they can use whichever designations they like.)
Enjoy this very special shape and the wonderful blend. If you want a change of pace, snag some of these unique cigars!
