Alec Bradley is adding a third cigar to their Experimental Series, the Alec Bradley Announces Double Broadleaf. This released follows the original Project 40 in 2019 and the Project 40 Maduro in 2020. The Alec Bradley Double Broadleaf will be packaged in dual tone green and natural wood 24-count boxes and come in five sizes. The new line will be shown off at the upcoming PCA tradeshow in Las Vegas in July.
Company Founder Alan Rubin is fascinated by agronomy and asked a premium cigar industry friend for some seeds of Connecticut Broadleaf tobacco to plant in the rich soils of Honduras. After years of testing, the tobacco is ready to use and has been blended into the Alec Bradley Double Broadleaf- Experimental Series by Alan, and his sons Alec and Bradley.
Alec, Bradley and I wanted to create a cigar spotlighting the beautiful Broadleaf wrapper we grew. As we blended though, we all craved more of that bold, rich flavor that Broadleaf imparts, so we doubled-down and added a Broadleaf binder leaf to the blend- which also led to the name: Double Broadleaf.
The company describes the Alec Bradley Double Broadleaf- Experimental Series as full bodied. In addition to the proprietary Broadleaf wrapper and Broadleaf binder, the blend is completed by an additional binder leaf from Nicaragua, all atop filler tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua. The 5 sizes in the blend are: Robusto: 5 X 50 $236.40 per box $9.85 per cigar, Chunk: 4 X 60 $252.00 per box $10.50 per cigar, Gran Corona: 7 X 46 $264.00 per box $11.00 per cigar, Toro: 6 X 52 $276.00 per box, $11.50 per cigar, and Gordo: 6 X 60 $306.00 per box $12.75 per cigar. The cigar is rolled in Danli, Honduras.
