Today, Alec and Bradley Rubin announced today that their second cigar, Gatekeeper, is how shipping to tobacconists worldwide. This cigar is a followup to last year’s Blind Faith, which we rated a 92. This new cigar, Gatekeeper, is made at E.P. Carrillo’s Tabacalera La Alianza in Santiago, Dominican Republic. It comes in four vitolas: Corona, Robusto, Toro and Gordo and sells for $8.75 to $12.25 per cigar.
The blend for Gatekeeper uses an Ecuadorian Habano Wrapper, Nicaraguan Binder and fillers from Nicaragua and Dominican Republic. It comes in boxes of 20 cigars featuring “Gothic Era inspired artwork purveying the fervent, take no prisoner’s attitude the brothers are pursuing to make their mark in the cigar industry.”
“Working with Ernesto opens up new doors for Bradley and me,” said Alec, “Ernesto is a gatekeeper to new opportunities and experiences for us- thus the name Gatekeeper.”
“We are a part of the next generation of the premium cigar business,” Bradley added. “Ernesto is a legend and we are humbled to be able to work with him.”
