Now here's a deal you don't see often. As many of you already know, when manufacturers have cigars that have not passed their quality control tests, they get set aside for further evaluation. During this time, we send our experts to the factories to take a look at the "rejected" inventory and snatch up what we can. Usually, the inventory we get as "Seconds" are simply seconds due to some cosmetic blemishes on the wrapper, and that's about it. They are the exact same blends as the firsts, but offered at an incredibly low price comparatively.
We're proud to introduce our new shipment of seconds from Alec Bradley as these beauties are all from his 90+ rated inventory. In order to close this deal, we had to promise Alan Rubin we wouldn't advertise which 90 and 90+ rated blends are which, as these seconds come unbanded, but we're sure if you do a little investigative work, you'll be able to make ends meet.
Sooo happy to have made the switch to 2nds. Minimal loss in quality, if any, for the cost savings.

This is my third bundle of AB 2nds and I doubt I'll order more. I've smoked three of the coronas so far. The first was dry, hard and brittle and drew like a banana. The next two were slightly better but still pretty bad, cracking wrappers, dry and stiff. I'll let them sit in the humidor for a while and hopefully salvage some enjoyment.
