Alec Bradley American Sun Grown
It’s a premium cigar that would’ve made ol’ Christopher Columbus proud!
Alec Bradley’s American Sun Grown is the second release in the brand’s “American series” (following the original American Classic cigar), showcasing a 100% Nicaraguan puro blend for the everyday smoker. Now, this may sound a bit contradictory, with all the talk of Columbus and “American” being right in the cigar’s title! “Is Alec Bradley in need of a map and a brief history lesson?” you may ask. “Close,” we reply, “but no cigar!” The American series represents the Americas as a whole, and while your childhood poem rings true: “In fourteen hundred ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue,” it wasn’t until 1502 that his team discovered the Central American country of Nicaragua!
As with this cigar’s mild-bodied predecessor, the American Sun Grown (ASG) maintains the blend’s core recipe and, more importantly, the cigar’s superior value. What’s changed is the addition of a new, Nicaraguan, sun-grown wrapper. Harvested from Nicaragua’s Jalapa region, this dark and oily leaf helps to beef up the blend; showcasing the cigar’s original smooth and sweet qualities, now with an added oomph of spice and body. Beginning in the astonishingly low $4 price range, Alec Bradley American Sun Grown provides flavors of drip-brew coffee, chocolate, earth, and freshly cracked black pepper. Grab a box (or three!) and let this American beauty take a turn at your daily rotation—your taste buds can thank us later…
