Shortly after Famous Smoke announced it’s partnership with Padron for their latest Exclusive: the Famous 75th Anniversary by Padron, in commemoration of Famous Smoke’s 75 years in business, Famous Smoke has announcest their newest partnership with Alec Bradley for two new exclusives: the 1600 & 1633.
The first of the two exclusives is the Alec Bradley 1600.
“We have one goal: to give you, the cigar smoker, an unforgettable experience,” -Alec Bradley Cigars president, Alan Rubin.
The new edition’s numerical moniker represents the year 1600, when tobacco was first grown in Brazil, and each Alec Bradley 1600 Brazilian cigar boasts a dark brown Brazilian Habano wrapper from a rare “first crop” harvest that lends an outstanding piquancy to the flavor and aroma.
The core blend consists of Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa, Honduran Jamastrán, plus a Costa Rican binder. The result is a well-balanced, full-bodied smoke that reveals layers of earthiness, sweet wood, and a subtle spiciness.
Alec Bradley 1600 Brazilian “First Crop” cigars are presented in boxes of 20 in the following sizes:
Churchill (7″ x 50)
Gordo (6″ x 60)
Toro (6″ x 52)
Robusto (5″ x 50)
“We’re especially pleased to partner with Alec Bradley for this new selection by including it in our ever-expanding portfolio of high-quality house brands,” said Famous marketing director, John Lamberti. “Cigar smokers drawn to dark, full-flavored cigars will find the Alec Bradley 1600 Brazilian selection extremely enjoyable as a solid afternoon or after-dinner smoke.”
Alec Bradley 1600 Brazilian “First Crop” Blend Information:
Wrapper: Brazilian Habano
Binder: Costa Rica
Filler: Nicaraguan Estelí, Nicaraguan Jalapa, Honduran Jamastrán
The second exclusive is the Alec Bradley 1633 which has a similar blend, but boasts a Connecticut wrapper as opposed to the Brazillian Habano wrapper on the “1600” blend. As 1600 represents the year during which tobacco was first grown in Brazil, 1633 represents the year during which tobacco was first grown in Connecticut; hence the Connecticut wrapper.
“The Alec Bradley 1633 has a great balance of smooth and rough, if that makes any sense. It’s got a smooth, cool draw, but hits you with some slight spice and strength. This is a perfect example of when to not judge a book by its cover. It looks mild because of the Connecticut wrapper, which is stereotypical for mild cigars. However, by bringing in heavy tobaccos from Nicaragua along with the sweet Honduran longfiller, you are left with a medium bodied well-rounded smoke.” -Jonathan Detore
Alec Bradley 1633 Cigars are available in four sizes – a 7 x 50 Churchill, a 6 x 60 Gordo, and a 6 x 52 Toro, and a 5 x 50 Robusto.
