Let’s talk about the Alec Bradley American Sungrown, a bolder line of the Alec Bradley American Brand. Alan Rubin, President of Alec Bradley, and the tireless engine behind the success of this cigar boutique corporation says that the American Sun Grown “has darker elements… It’s a nice little spice bomb with more body and more spice than the American Classic…” “We had this beautiful sun grown Habano wrapper leaf from Jalapa, after curing, the leaf acquired great color, burned well, and had a very rich flavor and aroma. By adding it to the filler and binder we’re using in the American Classic Blend, the Sungrown offers excellent balance while directing more spice flavors to the palate.”
The cigars are blended with the same Estelí & Condega grown long-fillers and the Jalapa binder used in the American Classic Blend, but they are finished with a sungrown Jalapa Habano wrapper. The result is a more mature cigar with deep spicy flavors and a robust character. Yet, the cigar is smooth throughout the entire length with solid ash and nutty sweet notes on the palate. The range of flavors from beginning to end is phenomenal and the combination of power and satisfaction that became the benchmark of Alec Bradley reached a higher plateau with the introduction of the American Sun Grown cigar.
The addition of this leaf blend will offer premium cigar smokers a medium strength cigar in the “value” price range.
