A Nicaraguan puro with American spirit.
Since its release, the Alec Bradley American Classic has been a hit, a winner through and through. Carefully blended by Alan Rubin, the line now has a new member of the family, and it's a home-run. Enter the new Alec Bradley American Sun Grown. This Nicaraguan puro utilizes the same Nicaraguan long-fillers as the American Classic, but now comes nestled inside a beautiful Nicaraguan sun-grown habano wrapper.
This leaf imparts a heartier, spicier, and overall richer character, while retaining the smooth balanced core that made the American Classic so enjoyable. Medium to full in body, the Sun Grown is complex yet smooth, and dishes out notes of black pepper, cedar, and nuts with a slight sweetness occasionally entering the fray. No doubt a more robust offering, the Sun Grown hits its mark, proving that sometimes the simplest ideas have the best results.
Good news! Alec Bradley American Sun Grown has received a well-deserved 91-point rating, noting: "Though the draw is notably firm, the cigar still produces a rich foundation of leathery, earthy notes complemented by sweet hints of toffee and a nutty, cashew-like finish."
