Alec Bradley Cigars owner Alan Rubin has been making cigars since 1996. Now his sons, Alec and Bradley, have blended their own brand, and it’s heading to cigar stores now. Blind Faith marks the brother’s first foray into cigar blending since they’ve taken on a larger role in their father’s company.
The cigar is made in Honduras at the Raices Cubanas factory, where many Alec Bradley cigars are produced. Blind Faith consists of a Honduran wrapper from the Trojes region; two binders, one Nicaraguan from Jalapa and the other Honduran from Trojes; and Criollo ’98 and Corojo ’99 filler grown in Estelí, Nicaragua.
Packed in 20-count boxes, Blind Faith is offered in three sizes: Robusto, at 5 inches by 52 ring gauge ($8.95); Toro, at 6 by 52 ($10); and Gordo, 6 by 60 ($10.95).
Alec and Bradley Rubin say that Blind Faith is intended to be medium to full in terms of strength, leaning more toward the full side.
