Alec Bradley Prensado
The Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill cigar has won the prestigious title of "The #1 Cigar of The Best 25 Cigars of the Year 2011!" by Cigar Aficionado!!! This is the highest honor possible in the cigar industry. Congratulations to Alan Rubin, founder of the Alec Bradley Cigar Company, and his staff! Their company is distinguished as a world-class boutique cigar producer and purveyor in the premium cigar industry. The company is named after his 2 sons, Alec and Bradley. Alan started it in 1996 and has come a long way in 16 years. His company was the first to create a triangular shaped cigar. Alan hit it on the head in 2007 when he introduced the Alec Bradley Tempus and only 2 years later he created the Alec Bradley Prensado blend.
The Alec Bradley Prensado is blended using Central American tobacco exclusively, including a very dark wrapper leaf grown in a southern area of Honduras called Trojes. The Alec Bradley Prensado is handmade at the Raices Cubanas factory in Danli, Honduras. It embodies the epitome of cigar perfection with its picture-perfect head and its stunning wrapper. But more than its stunning presentation it is the incredible flavors that makes the Alec Bradley Prensado a true classic! The Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos are blended in a harmonious way presenting hints of chocolate, leather, spice notes and a lush, long finish. A perfect description of this beauty, "A richly colored cigar with superb construction. The first puffs are sweet and leathery, then turn toasty and nutty with a chocolate note. Sophisticated."
The Alec Bradley Prensado is available in 6 sizes: Churchill, Corona Gorda, Double T, Gran Toro, Robusto and Torpedo are the first all box-pressed selection from Alec Bradley Cigars ("prensado" means pressed in Spanish) and by far their fullest-bodied blend. This blend will definitely give you something to sink your teeth into with its smooth buttery notes of rich and deep roasted coffee flavors and a dash of sweet pepper. The Alec Bradley Prensado will undoubtedly leave you thoroughly impressed proving why it got some of Cigar Aficionado's highest ratings!
