The name Alec Bradley is derived from the first names of company owner Alan Rubin’s sons, Alec and Bradley. Now at this year’s IPCPR Trade Show, Alec Bradley will showcase a cigar that was created by Rubin’s sons called Blind Faith.
Both brothers have been involved with working for Alec Bradley Cigars in various capacities, but this is the first cigar they have developed. To make Blind Faith, the duo turned to the Raices Cubanas factory – Alec Bradley’s longtime manufacturing partner. The cigar itself features a Honduran wrapper from the Trojes region, a double binder (Jalapa, Nicaragua and Trojes), and Nicaraguan filler composed of Criollo ’98 and Corojo ’99 from Nicaragua. The cigars are offered in three sizes presented in 20-count boxes.
Initial details of this release were given to Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Insider.
