Tasting Note

When it comes to writing, painting or crafting cigars, sometimes creating something new comes quickly. Other times it's a struggle. The birth of the Alec Bradley Mundial brand was the latter, a project that brand owner Alan Rubin's ruminated on for close to five years. "I always had Mundial on my mind," he said. The blend that finally sparked Rubin's interest included a wrapper from the Trojes region of Honduras, which Alec Bradley uses to great effect on its Prensado line. All Mundials have pointed feet that vaguely resemble lances, explaining the moniker "Punta Lanza" (point of the lance) that appears on each box. The No. 5 is meaty and leathery, with a pleasant amount of minerality.
