Alec Bradley's New 6x60 Cigar
Posted: May 17, 2011
Six inch long, 60 ring gauge cigars are among the hottest on the American market. Alec Bradley Cigar Co. is adding a 6 by 60 to its highly rated Alec Bradley Family Blend line.
The Alec Bradley GS57 will ship to cigar stores later this week. Made at the Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas S. de R.L. factory in Honduras, the smoke is made up of a medium-bodied blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan and Indonesian tobaccos. The Honduran wrappers, which are grown on a farm known as Trojes, are finished with the brand's signature pigtail cap.
The original Alec Bradley Family Blend cigar, a corona gorda measuring 5 1/2 by 50, scored 92 points and was named Cigar Aficionado's No. 16 cigar of 2009.
"We know there is a market for 6 by 60," said Alan Rubin, president of Alec Bradley, but production and scheduling will only allow us to make 1,000 boxes for the first issue of the GS57 for this year."
