This video is roughly twice as long as most of our other IPCPR videos. We have to make up for lost time as things didn’t work out last year and this year we get two Rubins. For those who may not have known, the name Alec Bradley comes from Alan Rubin’s two sons, Alec and Bradley. Alec Rubin makes his debut at IPCPR, here on Stogie Review and as I understand it, this is his first official on camera interview. After Alec gives us a run through of the entire Alec Bradley portfolio, dad Alan Rubin sits down and joins us to see how Alec did and to answer our ‘blogger’ question that by now you have noticed we were asking almost everyone.
A few things caught my eye. If you watch my Sneak Peek video of the Alec Bradley booth you will know I commented how much I liked the new look of the Tempus Maduro. I also find it interesting the Alec Bradley New York is being released nationally instead of remaining a NY exclusive. Two Connecticut shade cigars one being the American Classic (has a Honduran Connecticut wrapper) and the new Alec Bradley Connecticut. Will be interesting to see how they compare/contrast and/or compete on the shelf and at the register.
