Alec Bradley's New Wrapper
Posted: August 7, 2009
Alan Rubin and his team from Alec Bradley Cigar Co. have become enamored with a new wrapper, and they've built their new Alec Bradley Prensado around it. The five-size line will debut Sunday at the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers trade show in New Orleans.
The wrapper is called Corojo 2006, and it was grown in Trojes, Honduras, in 2006. Rubin first smoked it a year ago, and he and the folks from Alec Bradley have been tweaking the blend ever since. They settled on Jalapa binder from Nicaragua and a blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan filler.
The cigars are box pressed, a first for Alec Bradley, and Rubin says Prensado is the most powerful cigar he's ever sold. The Prensado comes in five sizes: Corona Gorda, Robusto, Churchill, Gran Toro and Torpedo. The line will retail for $8.95 to $11.75 and will be released in very limited quantities starting in September.
Prensado is being made at Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas, the factory that makes the Alec Bradley Tempus cigar.
