Cigar Dojo and Alec & Bradley are collaborating again, this time on Dojo Chico. This project is an homage to the Topo Chico brand of sparkling mineral water that many cigar enthusiasts, Cigar Dojo and Blind Man's Puff included, have come to embrace while smoking a cigar.
Alec Bradley has announced that their Alec & Bradley Gatekeeper cigar will be moving production from Ernesto Perez-Carrillo's (EPC) Tabacalera La Alianza in Santiago, Dominican Republic to Tobacos De Oriente in Danli, Honduras. The company says the change is due to increased demand from a combination of EPC Pledge Prequel and Gatekeeper receiving #1 and #7 Cigar of the Year from Cigar Aficionado magazine. The blend remains unchanged.
"This was an enjoyable cigar with distinct, easily discernible flavors which fluctuated in their prominence throughout the smoking experience. It was aided by solid construction and a lack of overall boringness. While not presenting itself as anything groundbreaking, I would certainly smoke this cigar again." -Matt Cade (CADE)
Today, Alec & Bradley Cigars, announced their third regular production line: 'Kintsugi" (pronounced Kint-Su-Gee). This follows Blind Faith from 2018 and Gatekeeper from 2019.
"Other than the bitterness in the final third, this was an excellent smoke. I will definitely smoke this again once I find out what it is. Bourbon, Peaty Scotch, and nearly any beer would pair well." -James H. (Keikan Jim)
JR continues their 50th Anniversary Celebration with a collaboration from Alec & Bradley. Alec and Bradley Rubin are the namesake behind the Alec Bradley brand, chosen by founder Alan Rubin. Alec and Bradley started their own company Alec & Bradley a few years ago.

"After initial inspection I wasn’t sure what to expect, however, this cigar smoked fantastically and produced delicious flavors. From pre-light draw to last puff, the cigar performed above expectations and had great smoke output. Not exactly my cup of tea as it was a little sweeter than I prefer, but I would gladly smoke another. Fantastic smoke if you have under an hour. Nub was the best part. Puff slowly and enjoy the end my friends." -Adam B. (Bushboi)
Alec & Bradley Rubin released the Blind Faith at the 2018 IPCPR trade show, their first release as an offshoot of the Alec Bradley brand. Today, they have announced that they will be expanding the distribution of this cigar, starting at Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) in Las Vegas, NV- January 29-31.
Cigar Dojo and Alec & Bradley have announced Uru Doshi, a limited cigar that will only be available on leap year. This is the first collaboration between Cigar Dojo and Alec & Bradley. Alec and Bradley is the company started by the sons of Alec Bradley cigar maker Alan Rubin, Alec and Bradley Rubin.
