Alec Bradley Sanctum

Find your peace, find the Sanctum

There are more 90+ rated cigars in Alec Bradley’s portfolio than screaming teenagers at a One Direction concert. With a string of hits including Tempus and Prensado, they really had to bring the heat with their newest addition, Sanctum. The over the top packaging sets the bar high and boy does the Sanctum deliver on all fronts.

Featuring a Honduran Corojo wrapper, a Costa Rican binder, and a blend of Colombian, Nicaraguan, and Honduran long-fillers, the flavor profile is rich and distinct. Sanctum is medium to full-bodied and the construction is perfect with an excellent burn and draw. The flavors will draw you in, setting the table for a complex and pleasurable experience with notes of pepper, fruit, spice, and wood. Scoop up some peace of mind and don’t miss out on Alec Bradley Sanctum.

Alec Bradley Sanctum received two 91-ratings, and Top 25 honors for 2015 (#15 overall) and a well-deserved 93-rating noting,"intensifies to show a diverse but harmonious range of flavors from white pepper and cinnamon to vanilla bean and almond paste."

Aromatic and fun smoke great for parties
I got this size by accident. But regardless a quality cigar and smooth taste. Lasts 2 1/2 hours. Aromatic and easy draw. Good to about 3 or 4 fingers when it start to get a little bitter. Awesome for peacocking or weddings. I will buy again but the normal size LOL.

Bill's review
As always, Alec Bradley has produced another excellent smoke. The draw and the taste are very appealing and I enjoy the time I spend with my Gordo. I have not had a bad "smoke" with an Alec Bradley cigar in all the years I have been enjoying them. I think the Sanctum line is a superb smoke. Five stars.

Not quite as flavorful as other AB's. However, that's saying alot...still gets 4 stars.

Awesome,2 hr. smoke
Don't usually even consider 8.5"x 60 cigars but so glad I did. Probably one of the best buys I've ever made. The smaller size probably don't measure up (no pun intended) . But this size is GREAT!

Excellent Smoke
I like a cigar that will last me the entire night. It has an excellent taste and a couple did smoke unevenly, but would be hard to get 100% with such a large cigar

I like this cigar
I bought a AB sampler with one Sanctum in it, and decided that I wanted to try more of them. I like the complexity that kicks in at the end of the first third and might buy more. Medium body, good smoke production, and excellent construction. Good smoke.

One of my favorites. Excellent smoke, great flavors. I recommend them to customers whenever I can. Get yours while you can, because AB has discontinued the blend.

Not My Fave
Just smoked my 3rd stick. I had been wanting to try this one due to its high rating. Good, even burn; just the right amount of smoke, great on the draw but there are a hundred cigars out there that can do that. The first 3rd was not impressive. I'm normally a full-body smoker but this one was harsh. Not complex in taste. Mediocre at best. 2nd, 3rd the cigar got better but didn't really ring the bell for me. Final third lost ground again. I got a good buy on a 10-pack and I'll smoke the rest of them. But, as far as buying them again, I won't.

My ability to taste subtle flavors in cigars, coffee, etc., is limited. However, this cigar has overcome this limitation. Great flavor throughout!!

This cigar certainly did not disappoint as it was smooth from the first few puffs. Bit milder than expected but robust in flavor, burns cool and taste very even throughout.

Quality sticks from AB
They have a more mellow profile than many others from AB and of course there are times when that is exactly what is needed. Great construction and burn and overall quality you would expect from this brand.

the Alec Bradley Sanctum are a very good smoke, as expected, and are a good surprisingly long smoke for the size.

Corojo Lovers take note.
Mmmmm, there is absolutely nothing here for corojo lovers not to like. What a great spicy smoky treat Alan Rubin has brought the world. As always CI is bringing it down at a price the masses can afford. Thanks CI.

Excellent!
I broke one one of my cigar-buying rules: never buy a box until I've tried one. But, in this case, I'm glad I did. The AB Sanctum is an excellent cigar. Great taste, construction--all around fantastic!

Unexpected pleasure
On my last order these were in the daily Joe section so I figured why not try them. What an unexpected surprise they are. Hopefully I can let the rest take a little longer rest in my humi and get an even more pleasing smoke. They burn even and have a strong white ash the first few draws were slightly harsh but that faded quickly and the stick maintained a great and balanced flavor the rest of the way. I will order more soon. Thanks again CI for a great quality smoke.

Personal Fav... delivered quick and they're well-made!
The first "full" stick I ever really liked was a Sanctum Toro... But, since I have "shallow pockets", I don't order them all that often. I will say that it's a well-made stick. I wish that CI had a deal for more than 5, though. I would surely jump on that bandwagon.

Alec Bradley SANCTUM
I recently bought the Alec Bradley SANCTUM 6X60 and am not disappointed (although I feel the box is over-the-top. The cigar was medium body throughout, roasted nuts and smoldering wood (think Christmas fireplace)burn was razor-edge straight and good volume of smoke. for me a good value for my money.

MMAO purchase
Not only did I get a great deal, these AB's arrived in mint condition and extremely fast.

Disappointing
I've sampled about a third of the Cigar Affic. top 25 list, either recently or from past purchases. All have been worthy of their high ratings in my opinion. The Sanctum unfortunately doesn't stack up. 3 of the 5 I bought had serious construction (i.e. falling apart) and draw issues, which mirrored other quality issues I've experienced with AB cigars (see: Rubin interview in Feb. Cigar Affic.). Regrettably all 3 were very bland. I'll wait before sampling more AB product, but look forward to further exploration of the other Top 25 offerings.

Not Special
I really like an 8x60 cigar on some occasions. And I like some Alec Bradley cigars. But these were not special in any way. The foot of one that I smoked had split about two inches--which did not bode well. But it smoked OK. Over-all, I'd call these cigars bland and forgettable--and I'll return to others I like better. JD.

A nice, refined smoke
I thought this was a milder cigar than the medium-full rating. It may be that the tastes are more subtle. That is not to say it is boring. It is well balanced, has a nice aroma, and produces a good amount of smoke. I plan on getting more of these. I liked it a lot more than the Prensado.

Pricey but worth it
Excellent smoke from beginning to end! I was presently surprised to find the final third better than the first. Didn't expect that since the first third was so good. Nice thick smoke.
