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