Alec Bradley Cigar Company has announced the Alec & Bradley Gatekeeper, the second release by second generation cigar makers Alec and Bradley Rubin are now heading to retailers.
Alec & Bradley is a subsidiary founded by the Rubin brothers in 2018. Last year Alec & Bradley released its first line, Blind Faith. For its sophomore release, Alec & Bradley turned to Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr and Tabacalera La Alianza.
Gatekeeper features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. The Dominican tobaccos are something very different than what have been seen in Alec Bradley blends.
“Working with Ernesto opens up new doors for Bradley and me,” said Alec Rubin a press release, “Ernesto is a gatekeeper to new opportunities and experiences for us- thus the name Gatekeeper.”
“We are a part of the next generation of the premium cigar business,” Bradley added. “Ernesto is a legend and we are humbled to be able to work with him.”
Gatekeeper is available in four sizes: Corona (5 1/8 X 42, MSRP $8.75 cigar), Robusto (5 X 50, MSRP $10.50/cigar), Toro (6 X 52, MSRP $11.50/cigar) and Gordo (6 X 60, MSRP $12.25/cigar)
