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.

"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)
