Alec Bradley Connecticut Isn’t Your Typical Connecticut Cigar

In 2010 and 2011, Alec Bradley launched two consecutive Connecticut shade wrapper cigars. He didn’t leak news about launching any cigars at the 2012 IPCPR, so people were shocked when he came out with yet another Connecticut wrapper cigar- the Alec Bradley Connecticut. Many were wondering why someone would choose to have three Connecticut cigars released for three consecutive years.

After trying the Alec Bradley Connecticut cigar, it’s easier to understand Bradley’s decision. The Connecticut differs greatly from the Alec Bradley Maxx and the American Classic, his other two Connecticut cigars. With a Connecticut shade wrapper from Ecuador, fillers from both Nicaragua and Honduras and Honduran binders, the cigar is nothing like the other two cigars with Connecticut wrappers.


Alec Bradley Connecticut is a mild to medium-bodied cigar. However, it could please full-bodied smokers looking for a mellow smoke. It is very peppery for a Connecticut cigar and is quite complex. Try yours from Cuenca Cigars. You can get them for the best online prices in sizes Nano, Robusto, Toro, Torpedo and Churchill.
