Alec Bradley has announced that it is expanding its Family Blend with a new series called “The Lineage.”

The line is made up of six vitolas all above 52 ring gauge, including three sizes with a ring gauge over 60. The 665 and 770 measure 6 x 65 and 7 x 70, while the gordo measures 6 x 60. Rounding out the line is a 5 1/4 x 52 robusto, 6 x 53 toro and 6 1/8 x 52 torpedo, the lone figurado of the group. Pricing has been reported as being between $6.75 and $9 per cigar.

The Lineage is being made at Raíces Cubanas in Honduras, home to the majority of Alec Bradley’s premium offerings, and will use a Honduran wrapper from the Trojes region, binder from Nicaragua and a filler comprised of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos. The line is expected to be at retail by the end of May.

It’s a nod to the sons of Alec and Bradley Rubin, sons of company founder Alan Rubin, to commemorate that they have both turned 18 and are now of legal age to smoke cigars in most states.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
