From the now well-known Alan Rubin comes his brainchild and perhaps one of the best values in the cigar biz: Alec Bradley Cigars. Alec Bradley cigars have been ranked in Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 of the year for multiple years and they've even taken the #1 Cigar of The Year in 2011 for their Alec Bradley Prensado line. Every Alec Bradley cigar is a work of art to be enjoyed one puff at a time.
Alec Bradley is based in Dania Beach, Florida. With annual sales of between two and three million cigars, the company has positioned itself very well by producing a quality smoke at a great price for American cigar smokers but it wasn't always easy for the Rubin or the company. Launched in a jam-packed market near the end of the 1990's cigar boom, Rubin initially positioned his cigars to sell to golf courses and as after-dinner flavored cigars. It was tough going until 2007. In that year, Alec Bradley introduced its full-flavored Tempus line of cigars and the company has become a staple to cigar fans ever since.
