Alec Bradley has begun shipping one of its new releases from the 2022 PCA Convention & Trade Show, the Double Broadleaf.

It is the third release in the company’s Experimental Series and features a blend that is built around Honduran grown, Connecticut-seed broadleaf tobacco. That tobacco is used for the wrapper and one of the binders, while a Nicaraguan-grown broadleaf wrapper was selected to add another layer of flavor. The fillers come from Honduras and Nicaragua.

The line is offered in five vitolas, all of which are regular production size:

  • Alec Bradley Double Broadleaf Chunk (4 x 60) — $10.50 (Box of 24, $252)
  • Alec Bradley Double Broadleaf Robusto (5 x 50) — $9.85 (Box of 24, $236.40)
  • Alec Bradley Double Broadleaf Toro (6 x 52) — $11.50 (Box of 24, $276)
  • Alec Bradley Double Broadleaf Gordo (6 x 60) — $12.75 (Box of 24, $306)
  • Alec Bradley Double Broadleaf Gran Corona (7 x 46) — $11 (Box of 24, $264)

The line is produced by Tabacos de Oriente, the Plasencia-owned factory in Danlí, Honduras.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
