Alec Bradley American Sungrown

Founded by Alec Rubin in 1996, Alec Bradley Cigar Co has distinguished itself as a world class boutique producer and vendor in the premium cigar industry. The brand is recognized for both quality and accessibility. Alec Bradley cigars continue to receive top ratings from critics and smokers around the globe.

The Alec Bradley house produces over 13 different lines of cigars. The lines include: American Classic, American Sungrown, Black Market, Family Blend, Maxx, Maxx Connecticut, Occidental Reserve, Prensado, Select Cabinet Reserve, Tempus, Tempus Maduro, Vice Press, Special Blends and Spirit of Cuba.

Let’s talk about the Alec Bradley American Sungrown, a new and bolder line of the Alec Bradley American Brand. Alan Rubin, President of Alec Bradley, and the tireless engine behind the success of this cigar boutique corporation says that the American Sun Grown “has darker elements… It’s a nice little spice bomb with more body and more spice than the American Classic…” “We had this beautiful sun grown Habano wrapper leaf from Jalapa, after curing, the leaf acquired great color, burned well, and had a very rich flavor and aroma. By adding it to the filler and binder we’re using in the American Classic Blend, the Sungrown offers excellent balance while directing more spice flavors to the palate.”

The cigars are blended with the same Estelí & Condega grown long-fillers and the Jalapa binder used in the American Classic Blend, but they are finished with a sungrown Jalapa Habano wrapper. The result is a more mature cigar with deep spicy flavors and a robust character. Yet, the cigar is smooth throughout the entire length with solid ash and nutty sweet notes on the palate. The range of flavors from beginning to end is phenomenal and the combination of power and satisfaction that became the benchmark of Alec Bradley reached a higher plateau with the introduction of the American Sun Grown cigar.

The addition of this leaf blend will offer premium cigar smokers a medium strength cigar in the “value” price range of $4.75 to $5.75 per cigar. Mike’s Cigars carries a wide selection of cigars and samplers from the Alec Bradley Collection, including Alec Bradley Sun Grown blend cigars – in stock and ready to ship, in your favorite strength and size. Get your Alec Bradley Cigar and experience the difference!

Better days

Ah, it was one of those days. I had been in court, fighting with my ex wife over the custody of our two young boys. It had been back and forth for hours. We took a break and I headed outside for some fresh air. I really felt as if I had been put through the wringer. Reaching for a cigarette, one of the guards at the court house asked if I had ever had a cigar. I had to admit it had been years. He suggested that I try one of his, adding he bet it would help me relax. I didn’t know about that but I figured with the way the day had been going, what the heck. I cannot remember the brand, but the wrapper was maduro. As soon as I put flame to tobacco, I felt better. The cigar, the friendliness of the guard, or the fresh air, but I knew at that moment, cigars would be a part of my future. Since that day, I received custody of my children and a smokers of cigars.

The Big Sale at Christmas

With the economy cutting back, last year I was invited to just one party. I was happy because I finally closed a sale I was working on for 5 years. I was having a great time, but realized I forgot the two cigars I bought to celebrate. It must of been obvious how upset I was, since a stranger came up to me and handed me a cigar, and said enjoy. I felt bad. The only one he had, until a few minutes later, he had another?? Baffeled, I went up to him, and explained to him, why it was so important and thank you for the cigar, but I noticed you had another. He said follow me. Well in the corner of the catering hall, was a cigar roller, rolling several varieties of cigars. I never saw him. By the end of the night I had several different kinds in my pocket, and had my fill as well celebrating “THE BIG SALE”! Christmas could not have been better.

Well I fish alot and smoke cigars a REAL lot and had an interesting experience with both June. Me and my fishing bud Big Dave went out in Long Island sound to fish for Bluefish and Striped bass.

They were about 8″ long and looked really tasty. So we fired right up and and about three or four puffs into the smoke, Dave’s line screams and he has a beast of a bluefish on.
