Many people were excited about the announcement of Alec Bradley Sanctum cigars at the 2014 IPCPR. The cigar wasn't actually launched until about a year later, when Bradley launched the line at the 2015 IPCPR. The cigar was worth waiting for, and the wait has been forgotten by most.
Alect Bradley Sanctum was named after the Latin term “sanctum”, which means “a sacred or holy place.” Created by Ralph Montero, the executive Vice President of Alec Bradley, the cigar transforms smokers to their own sacred place. The cigar looks smooth and sleek, and has notes of sweetness and notes of clean tobacco.
One special feature of the cigar is the band. Alec Bradley Sanctum doesn't have your traditional band, fastened by goma to the wrapper. Instead, it has a double band. A bottom band is attached by tension, and a top band is attached to the bottom by goma. When the bands are removed, the wrapper is left in perfect condition.
Originally slated to have five sizes, Alec Bradley Sanctum is available in four vitolas. Whether you try Gordo, Double Gordo, Toro or Robusto, the cigar is worth trying. You can get them for the best online prices from Cuenca Cigars.
