Alec Bradley American Classic Churchill is everything a stogie should be—well made, and perfectly blended.
These stogies start with a seldom-used Honduran Connecticut-seed wrapper leaf, which adds cream, toast, and a little bit of peppery spice.
Underneath this leathery, silky leaf is two binder leaves—one from Honduras and one from Nicaragua—as well as Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers.
This blend makes for a balanced, bready smoke with noticeable notes of coffee, cream, and a nice pepper kick on the finish.
These mellow, medium-bodied beauties draw effortlessly from start to finish.
