Awarded Number #1 Cigar in 2011 and rated a massive 96 by Cigar Aficionado, Alec Bradley Prensado cigars are a master blend of premium Nicaraguan and Honduran long fillers bound a Nicaraguan Jalapa leaf, and completed with a rare, vintage Trojes Corojo 2006 wrapper. A robust and savory, medium to full bodied super-premium cigar that awakens the palate with rich notes of coffee, chocolate, black pepper, and cinnamon.
From Alan Rubin, founder of Alec Bradley cigars, “The Prensado means a lot to me and the Alec Bradley cigars story. Rolled at Raices Cubanas (‘Cuban Roots’) cigar factory, the Prensado was first created to pay homage to the Cuban traditions of cigar making. Rolling the filler ‘entuba-do’, triple-capping the head and box pressing the cigar. Blended with proprietary estate-grown corojo leaf from the Trojes region in Honduras, the Alec Bradley Prensado would eventually be named Cigar Aficionado “Cigar of the Year,” propelling Alec Bradley’s trajectory into cigar culture much quicker than I had anticipated.”
On the philosophy of what they do at Alec Bradley Cigars, Rubin continues, “At the end of the day, we don’t save lives; we just try to make them better one hour at a time. It makes no difference whether you’re an oil tycoon or a gas station clerk; for that time that you sit and smoke together, you’re both able to enjoy the moment, no matter who you are—this is the experience we want to be a part of.
We have one goal: to give you, the cigar smoker, an unforgettable experience.”
