Since launching Alec Bradley Cigars, Alan Rubin has probably been mistakenly addressed as Alec Bradley a thousand times. People just assume his name is Alec Bradley because, why would he not name his cigar company after himself. For those who still don't know, he named the cigar company for his sons, Alec and Bradley Rubin. Now that they are of age, Alec and Bradley are excited to share responsibility in the company and this year they have released their own cigar. Everything from the blending, design, marketing, and all other facets are handled exclusively by Alec and Bradley. The cigar is called Blind Faith, and is now on the way to retailers.

"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)

"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)
