Alec & Bradley Gatekeeper

A new line from the future of the cigar industry.

Alan Rubin has built quite a beat with his Alec Bradley line. Receiving numerous 90+ ratings and and earning a spot in humidors all over the world, it’s been very exciting to see what Alan has up his sleeves. But this release from Alec Bradley isn’t about Alan, it’s about his company’s namesake. Alec & Bradley are Alan’s sons, and fans of Rubin’s work have been patiently waiting to see what the boys would bring to the industry when they came of age and joined their father in the family business in earnest. Their first venture into premium handmades was a limited release called Blind Faith, and the first batch quickly sold out. Their second is called Gatekeeper, and trust me when I say, the brothers are already at the top of their game.

Gatekeeper comes dressed in an Ecuador Habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder, with fillers from the Dominican and Nicaragua. Its smooth, rich profile is accentuated by notes of cedar, nuts, and leather, and the construction is what you would expect from the factory that produces such great sticks as the Prensado. This cigar is the result of a great man passing along his wealth of knowledge and skill to the next generation. Judging by the excellent results, our industry has nothing to worry about.

Good news! Alec & Bradley Gatekeeper has been named #7 Cigar of 2020 with a 95-rating, noting: "...Gatekeeper finds synergy and balance with its backbone of pepper (both red and black), nougat and caramel that’s spicy in the right places, sweet in the right places and pops with savory snaps of leather."

Gatekeeper Solid
Fantastic medium body cigar! I love the sweetness off the Ecuador Habano wrapper. It’s very well made with a great even burn... By far my favorite Alec & Bradley cigar. As a collector of cigar labels this artwork is sweet too... Well done

Bradley’s Do It Again
Fantastic medium body smoke!! Perfect construction, one of the best burn temperatures of any Robusto I’ve had. If I had to pick a favorite cigar family it would be the Bradley’s, and this stick just further solidifies why.

A fantastic cigar!
Got my hands on a box of these at my local cigar lounge at an event and had the pleasure of meeting Bradley himself. I was expecting it to be like their Black Market Esteli (great cigar) and I was thrown off by how different it is. Great flavor, has some sweetness with a hint of pepper. Nice even burn and the flavor only improves as you smoke it. I smoked it all the way to the head and it doesn’t get bitter. This is my new go-to cigar and I highly recommend it!
