The Alec Bradley American Classic Blend Gordo is a large smoke that lets you enjoy a wide spectrum of flavors. The American Classic Blend is evocative of classic, early 20th-century, Tampa-style cigars. The filler is a blend of fine tobaccos grown in the Esteli and Condega regions of Nicaragua. The wrapper is grown under the shade in the fertile lands of Honduras, from Connecticut seeds. This exquisite combination presents a quality of smoke that is simply unforgettable. The cigar begins with a slightly fruity flavor, with a peppery hint. These are followed by suggestions of fresh bread and cedar. The creamy smoke also has undertones of cocoa and wood.
Alan Rubin, the founder of Alec Bradley, had the idea to revive the taste of Tampa-made cigars. He carefully chose the tobaccos that would go into their creation, including the bold-flavored tobacco leaves from the Jalapa region of Nicaragua for the binder. The fine filler blend and the Honduran-grown Connecticut shade wrapper make this cigar extremely enjoyable. These Gordo cigars are 6 inches long and have a ring gauge of 60. They are available in boxes of 20.
