Alec Bradley Premium Plus Collection Sampler Description
The Alec Bradley Premium Plus Collection Sampler lets you experience a few of Alec Bradley's popular blends.
American Sun Grown. Don't get confused by this one, it's an offshoot of the American Classic, but uses all Nicaraguan tobacco. At least the company owner (Chicago's Alan Rubin) is there to bring in the American spirit somewhere. The flavors earned it a 91 from Cigar Aficionado and it's leathery, earthy, and has a finish that brings toffee and nuts. Very natural and tasty.
Black Market. You're getting a ton of tobacco here, and the combo has helped this one pull down a 90 rating with more than one outlet. A blend of Honduran and Panamanian long-filler are rolled into an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, which then is all wrapped by primo Nica leaf. Come for the coffee and chocolate core, stay for the intriguing rummy finish.
Connecticut. The Alec Bradley Premium Plus Collection Sampler ensures that homage is paid to tradition by including a finely made Connecticut. This wrapper leaf was grown in Ecuador, where the cloudy shade yields the perfect amount of sunlight for CT-seed wrapper tobacco.
Family Blend Lineage. This is a bit of a surprise offering, and without some luck, we wouldn't even be enjoying it. Alec Bradley reps used to hand out unnamed cigars to contacts. After enough people demanded more, the company had no choice but to formalize the Family Blend cigar line. The Lineage is the next step, with a Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco mix that was good enough for 90 points at Cigar Aficionado, which praised the lush, creamy draw.
MAXX. The Alec Bradley MAXX is a cigar sampler mainstay because the flavors have been selling well for years and there are no signs of slowing down. There's a lot going on in this 4-nation blend, so just give it a shot and you'll know why this smooth yet potent cigar earns its name with each smoke session.
You've also got an Alec Bradley torch lighter right in the package, so you won't have to go looking for one (now, if only you could find your damn cutter).
A Premium Alec Bradley sampler would have probably been enough, but the Premium PLUS Collection is here for us to revel in. Get yours and enjoy five delicious smokes from one of the most successful gringos to ever venture south of the border on a mission to make fine tobacco products.
