Alec & Bradley Gatekeeper

Description

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."

After months of not smoking this cigar I find myself thinking about it often from the beautiful band to the wonderful color you are presented with from its oily wrapper the profile is bold and will test your worthiness giving off strong red pepper flakes on the retrohale with coriander and aged wood on the palate this is a man's cigar and it won't let you forget it

An even burn. Nice draw. Good 45-60min cigar. First time trying not sure how I got them, maybe a sampler or something. Anyway I read the flavor profile and saw two types of pepper. Got scared, we have all had those terrible cigars that shouldn’t be allowed anywhere but hell. Once I lit the draws were nice as it burned down the peppery became more intense but nothing offensive. I will smoke again. Like a good song it builds to a strong finish. Very nice.

Good flavor, but uneven burn, and had to be relit several times. First third was merely ok, second third was acceptable, final third was decent. Hopefully the next four of my 5 pack will be better. Any cigar is better than no cigar, however.

Nice tight roll, perfect wrapper and a smooth leathery taste. Slow burning with a nice ash. This one wants you to take some time and savor it. Medium-full and worth checking out!

An amazing cigar from construction to complexity to its delicious rich tobacco flavor with nuances of cedar, cashews, and malted chocolate. We’ll done Alex, Bradley and Ernesto.
