Alec Bradley, among the most popular brands in the U.S., is champing at the bit for a chance to take on its preeminent Cuban counterparts. For Alec Bradley Post Embargo, the cigars embrace the United States’ recent efforts to mend relations with Cuba. If/when the embargo is eventually lifted, AB’s Central American blends will go toe-to-toe with Cuba’s “unattainable” allure, and smokers will choose the victor without bias.
This is the theme behind the Alec Bradley Post Embargo, exploring the idea that quality tobacco and techniques have accelerated in countries like Nicaragua and Honduras, embracing the full flavors and body that the modern enthusiast demands. As such, AB Post Embargo utilizes Central American tobaccos exclusively, with both countries’ influence in the filler and dual binder; in addition, the cigars are finished with an oily Honduran-grown wrapper. Post Embargo is rolled at the famed Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras, offering hobbyists a medium to full body and satisfying flavors of medium-roast coffee, black pepper spice, earth, and a unique maltiness.
