American Classic is one of the most impressive $5 cigars we've seen from Honduras.
Alan Rubin, the maker of Alec Bradley, spares no expense or time when creating his phenomenal cigars. Never rushed, he patiently ages his tobaccos for years in order to achieve perfect balance and smooth characters no matter how strong or light his blends may be. Alec Bradley cigars have turned many heads in the industry, earning ratings of '90' or above from Cigar Aficionado, including a '94' for Alec Bradley Family Blend and his Tempus line. For this reason, Alec Bradley cigars are sought after among the most elite aficionados and cigar makers in the business.
Usually, an "American Classic" blend would contain a milder Connecticut-grown Connecticut-shade wrapper. However, to achieve maximum flavor, Alan Rubin took Connecticut-seeds and grew them in the super fertile soils of Honduras, creating a full-flavored Connecticut wrapper with a semi-dark hue. This excellent wrapper conceals a long-leaf filler of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos for a smooth, and creamy full-flavored mild to medium blend that's to die for. Without a doubt, for $5 per stick, we're confident this cigar will be a staple in your humidor.
America, F-Yeah! Besides the fact that I love the name, I set my sights on Alec Bradley American Classic due to its unbelieveable price. I've finally found a corona focused around value. Top-notch, premium Nicaraguan tobaccos make up the filler and binder while a Connecticut leaf masks the ourside - all under $5. Insert '90' rating here.
