Alec Bradley Easy 5 Cigar Sampler


Greetings, celebrators of seconds. We at Habana Port have received a huge shipment of Alec Bradley Seconds. Dubbed the Easy Five, these cigars are bundled in a 5 count pack, and are offered in an assortment of sizes (from lonsdales to double coronas and everything in between) and your choice of Connecticut, Habano and Maduro wrappers.

Alright, alright, so more importantly, what is the cost? Each pack retails for $15.95. That's get 5 cigars from Alec Bradley for under $16. That's $3.19 a stick for blends that usually retail for more than double. As many of you know, a second is a cigar that has not met the high standards of a cigar manufacturer to receive a band for a higher-priced line. There is nothing wrong with the cigar or tobacco.  The defects are usually aesthetic...maybe there's a color blemish or the wrapper has a vein. Perhaps a cigar was packed a bit too loose. Or maybe the cigar is not as solid as it should be. The sticks are usually made by beginners so this is a great way for a roller to master his trade. But if all the consumer cares about is the flavor of a cigar blend, then seconds are an intelligent purchase.

So hurry in to any Habana Port Cigar Merchants location (Baton Rouge or Covington) and be the first to buy your packs. Whether the assortment is a Torpedo or Robusto or whether it is a Connecticut or Maduro, each sampler pack costs you $15.95. And once these samplers are gone, there is no guarantee we will see this offering from Alec Bradley again (or at least anytime soon since factories do not try to produce a cigar that meets the lower classification of a second).

FYI, we should list the Easy 5 Cigar Samplers on by the end of the week.

Until the next post, siempre fumando,
Habana Port
