American Classic is one of the most impressive $5 cigars we've seen, and it's from none other than the tobacco titans at Alec Bradley.
Alan Rubin, the founder/owner 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 tame 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 mellower 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, mellow 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.

Customer Reviews of “Alec Bradley American Classic Blend”
Covered in a dark brown Connecticut seed wrapper, this cigar could easily be mistaken as a Habano. The construction is great except for some minor discoloration and a soft spot down by the foot. On the low side of medium-bodied this Connecticut blend was a nice change of pace and impressive for the price. It delivers smooth and creamy flavors. It’s not overly complex but works nicely as an everyday, go-to blend.
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.
