In 2010, Alec Bradley launched a Connecticut wrapper cigar, the Alec Bradley Maxx. Then, he released the Alec Bradley American Classic cigar with a Connecticut wrapper in 2011. No one was expecting him to launch yet another Connecticut shade cigar at the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show, and it was kept a secret until it was officially launched. The Alec Bradley Connecticut cigar marked the third year in a row a cigar with a Connecticut wrapper was launched by Bradley, and people weren’t sure what to expect.
It may have been a bold decision to have three Connecticut wrapper cigars, but it was a smart one. The Alec Bradley Connecticut is very different from the Maxx and American Classic. The cigar features a Connecticut shade wrapper from Ecuador. Under the wrapper, there are Nicaraguan and Honduran binders with Honduran fillers. The result is a mild to medium-bodied cigar with complex and peppery flavors.
Even if you’re a fan of full-bodied cigars, the Connecticut makes for a nice occasional mellow smoke. You can buy them in Nano, Robusto, Toro, Torpedo and Churchill sizes. Buy them from Cuenca Cigars for the best online prices.
