Free from the confines of marketing gimmicks and high-budget advertising campaigns, Alec Bradley Raices Cubanas is purely the real deal. If you’re looking for a straightforward cigar that’s named after the factory from which it came, then this humble beauty absolutely fits the bill. There’s no nonsense—what you see is simply what you get. But it would be a mistake to underestimate a blend such as this. Stripped down to the bare minimum, this well-curated handmade easily proves its own worth.
Medium in body, Alec Bradley Raices Cubanas opens with an unblemished, oily, and inviting Honduran wrapper. On the inside, a hand-selected medley of Honduran long-fillers is nestled inside a Nicaraguan binder. The overall profile is incredibly smooth and creamy, with a distinct hint of butter toffee and light notes of spicy pepper. Triple capped and formulated with just the right amount of power this top-notch offering quietly, yet definitively comes out a winner.
