Alec Bradley Medalist Cigars – The Return of a Mellow Classic!

Monday, June 25th, 2018

If you were a premium cigar smoker in the mid- 1990s, you may recall the Alec Bradley Medalist brand. It was a popular mellow to medium body smoke, and one of the first brands to put this now famous cigar company on the map. Alec Bradley went on to create a portfolio of highly rated, full-bodied releases like Black Market, Maxx, Tempus, Prensado, to name a few, however, In January 2018, the company went back to its roots with the re-release of this old favorite brand, to once again capture the mellow cigar smoking audience.

The reincarnated Medalist brand consists of the same recipe of perfectly aged Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers, a Honduran binder, and a deep, reddish brown Honduran wrapper. And, much to the delight of its many former brand loyalists, the Medalist has returned once again affordably priced!

Alec Bradley Medalist cigars are available in four popular big ring vitolas, with a Gordo that weighs in at a hefty 6 x60-size— a wise choice considering big fat cigars are all the rage these days! As one would expect from an Alec Bradley offering, every cigar is flawlessly rolled, slow burning, and displays an effortless draw.

Flavor-wise, the Medalist does not disappoint, for its brimming with rich and rewarding tasting notes of cocoa, baking spices, leather, toast, cream, and some hints of zesty citrus to spice things up a bit.

This cigar remains one of the finest mellow cigars Alec Bradley has ever released, and thanks to its smooth easygoing character, it’s one of the few Bradley blends that’s newcomer friendly.

Unlike its long running predecessor, this Medalist is made in limited quantities, so if you want to experience what we consider the perfect all-day smoke, you shouldn’t hesitate to place your order.

Jose Marti Cigars – An Outstanding Everyday Value!

Friday, June 1st, 2018

Going old-school once again for this edition of our JR blog, we look at a premium cigar brand that has been around for so many years, that many current legal age smokers were still teething when it was first released!

Jose Marti cigars were named for a pivotal figure in Cuban history who led an insurrection that ultimately resulted in Cuban independence from Spain. Sparing you any more of this history lesson, Jose Marti cigars, available in Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Dominican blends has certainly stood the test of time, because this is an awfully tough cigar to beat when it comes to flavor, quality, and price.

First released in 1992, by NATSA, the talented folks who brought you some of our enormously popular JR Alternative brands, to name a few, the original Jose Marti Nicaragua consists of four big ring vitolas that are rolled with aged Dominican, Honduras, and Nicaraguan fillers, a Honduran binder, and a silky Ecuadorian wrapper. To accommodate Maduro cigar fans, the 4.5 x52-ring Jose Marti Robusto uses a dark, almost black Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper in place of the Ecuadorian leaf. Both varieties are medium body in strength, rich, nutty, earthy, and sweet, with the Maduro blend bringing some chocolaty goodness to the flavor profile.

Riding on the heels of its hot-selling Nicaraguan counterpart, Jose Marti Dominican cigars were made with the mellow to medium body cigar aficionado in mind. It features aged Dominican binder and fillers paired with the classic Connecticut Shade wrapper that is prized for its silky-smooth taste and feel. Those who love traditional creamy flavors that include coffee, leather, nuts, and spice, found on many of the top-rated high-end Dominican brands, will find this affordable Connecticut-style cigar a very satisfying everyday value.

It took a very long time, but in 2015 the enormously popular Jose Marti brand finally got a line extension produced in Honduras to cover all three popular Central American cigar growing regions. Jose Marti Honduran cigars feature a stunning Ecuador Sumatra wrapper, a sturdy binder from Honduras, and a complex blend of aged long filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Nicaragua. To offer Honduran cigar fans their perfect style of smoke, it comes in a staggering eight size assortment that once again includes a dark, oily, Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped Robusto. Medium to full bodied and oozing with ample notes of earth, peppery spice, nuts, cocoa, cedar, and some chocolaty flavors from the Robusto, these Honduran gems pick up where its Nicaraguan cousin left off.

Now sold in 20-count bundles, the entire line of handmade premium Jose Marti cigars offer budget conscious consumers the quality and taste normally found on costlier cigars.

The Nat Sherman Timeless Collection – Two Extraordinary Blends

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Nat Sherman, a legendary name in premium cigars, first set up shop in NYC in 1930, and now 88 years later, his ever-expanding portfolio includes some of the most sought-after cigars in the world.

In 2011, the Sherman family, with the help of industry legend Manuel Quesada, put a contemporary spin on their cigar business with a brand called Nat Sherman Timeless Collection, a blend made to appeal to the modern smoker’s palate. It was released to such rave reviews that it made Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 list of 2012 list and would go on to become a top seller for the company.

The Nat Sherman Timeless Collection is available in two styles starting with the Dominican blend that is available in a huge eight vitola selection.  All these cigars feature aged tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua expertly rolled inside a seamless golden-brown Honduran wrapper. these sweet smelling, smooth tasting, medium bodied cigars, serve up savory notes of espresso, earth, some hints of vanilla, citrus, and a warm toasty finish.

Riding on the heels of the original Timeless cigars, in 2012 the company released the Timeless Collection Nicaragua version that has the same banding as its Dominican cousin. One way you can tell the two blends apart aside from the wrapper differences is that the Nicaraguan version is a box-press cigar.

Available in four vitolas, as opposed to eight, the Nat Sherman Timeless Nicaragua cigars are puros consisting of the best-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos, once again, flawlessly rolled under the supervision of the famous Quesada family.

Like the Dominican variety, this one is a medium body blend, however, as expected it boasts a totally different flavor profile. After toasting and lighting, you will savor a complex medley of molasses, oak, chocolate, cedar, and fruit flavors, all punctuated with a long lasting sweet tobacco finish.

With the perfect balance between flavor and strength, both medium body Timeless brands are powerful enough for a veteran smoker yet display a creamy smooth character that will entice a newcomer.

Best of all, the entire Timeless Collection portfolio showcases the quality and extraordinary taste that comes with every premium handmade Nat Sherman cigar.
