“American Classic Blend”

“American Classic Blend”

DANIA, FL – May 5, 2011- Perhaps a parade would have been more in order. Alec Bradley Cigars is pleased to announce the release of their newest premium cigar series, Alec Bradley American Classic Blend. Following the lead of the company’s “outstanding”-rated Tempus, Family Blend, and Prensado cigars, this patriotic-inspired selection offers a mild to medium-bodied blend of specially-aged Nicaraguan Estelí and Condega long-fillers, Nicaraguan Jalapa binder, and a Honduran-grown Connecticut Shade wrapper. Scheduled to launch in conjunction with Memorial Day, the Alec Bradley American Classic Blend isn’t your father’s cigar – it’s your fathers-father’s cigar; the kind of old-school feel, Tampa-style cigars that were smooth, sweet and complex. The cigars will retail from $3.95 to $5.50 (higher tobacco taxation states excluded), and are expected to arrive at tobacconists just in time for Memorial Day weekend.

“We wanted to make an affordably-priced handmade cigar like the cigars that were popular in America during the early part of the 20th century,” said Alec Bradley Cigars President, Alan Rubin. “Even with the SCHIP tax, the customer is getting a high-quality smoke at a very reasonable price.”

The American Classic Blend is presented in boxes of 20 cigars in the following six sizes:

Corona: (42 x 5 1/2)
Robusto: (50 x 5)
Toro: (50 x 6)
Churchill: (48 x 7)
Torpedo: (52 x 6 1/8)
Gordo: (60 x 6)


“Since there are so few people around that would remember what this kind of cigar would have tasted like, it was a real challenge for us,” added Mr. Rubin. “Eventually we found just the right tobaccos, and I believe we hit the nail on the head. The cigars have an excellent balance of flavor, complexity and depth. Cigar smokers can expect a very smooth, creamy smoke with sweet cedar notes and a distinct nutty flavor on the finish.”
