Alec Bradley Cigars (Honduras)
In 1996 Ralph knew almost nothing about the cigar except where to cut it and where to light it! However, it was his greatest passion and he decided to dedicate his life to it by creating his own company: the Alec Bradley Cigar Company.
With the ups and downs experienced by the young company, its goal has always been to make cigars that aficionados appreciate. No “arrogant” words such as “We make the best cigars”, … etc. On the contrary, a real openness to the terroirs and a motivation to create balanced mixes with different personalities pushes him to “mix” cigars. Thus, one can find in their composition tobacco from different origins such as Honduras mainly, but also tobacco from the Dominican Republic and of course from Nicaragua.
In 1998, the cigar boom in the United States came to an end and many companies had to struggle to survive. Alec and Ralph decided to join forces and create their first cigar together: “The Western Reserve”. They got their answer and understood that their associated skills allowed them to achieve a quality that offers them a future: Making cigars that they themselves like other aficionados.
Here is a modest and open approach! The result ? Cigars to say the least interesting. Nuanced personalities and mixes ranging from simple and light cigars to aromatic and full-bodied. You just have to try.
