The Alec Bradley Sanctum has tobacco from four different countries to create one memorable cigar. The Sanctum was created under the supervision of Ralph Montero. The wrapper is Honduran Corojo, the binder from Costa Rica and the filler is Colombian, Honduran, and Nicaraguan. It was first introduced at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas and now it is here for purchase.

The Sanctum is described by Alec Bradley as "on the higher side of medium." When you get a chance to smoke this cigar, you'll smell the sweet aroma of cedar, nuts, creaminess, white pepper, cherry, and graham. Alec Bradley is known for creating superb hand-made cigars like the Alec Bradley Coyol, Mundial and Prensado.
Cigar Aficionado said, "...the Sanctum blend moves away from the earthier cigars that Alec Bradley has traditionally released and aspires to be a more rounded smoke. This was achieved by the combination of a Honduran Corojo wrapper, Costa Rican binder and a multination filler. All together, it amounts to a four-country blend of tobaccos that culminate beautifully in the Toro size, which starts mild, but intensifies to show a diverse but harmonious range of flavors from white pepper and cinnamon to vanilla bean and almond paste."
