Alec Bradley MAXX
Alan Rubin, the head of Alec Bradley, spares no expense or time when creating his phenomenal cigars. Never rushed, he patiently ages his tobaccos for years in order to achieve perfect balance and smooth characters no matter how strong or light his blends may be. Alec Bradley cigars have turned many heads in the industry, earning ratings of ’90’ or above from Cigar Aficionado, including a ’94’ for Alec Bradley Family Blend and his Tempus line. For this reason, Alec Bradley cigars are sought after among the most elite aficionados and cigar makers in the business.
Originally only available in special samplers, MAXX Brazil was a massive hit with our clients. We kept getting request after request to start carrying the line but couldn’t get them in quick enough due to the careful aging of the tobaccos. Well, the time has finally arrived and the masses can rejoice! MAXX Brazil is here to stay. Using the already complex blend of Colombian, Nicaraguan, Mexican, and Honduran tobaccos, MAXX Brazil adds on a smooth, oily Brazilian Habano wrapper. This combination delivers a rich, robust smoke that’s brimming with notes of earth, leather, sweet cedar, cream, and spices. Deliciously complex, excellently blended, this is one tasty cigar. Medium-Full, Shape: Robusto,Wrapper: Habano,Orgin: Honduras
So by my tally, that’s a 5 country blend and one of the most complex cigars in the industry.
