October Cigar Box Deal

Have you ever heard of the Japanese art called Kintsugi? An ancient Japanese artform of joining together ceramics with gold lacquer-making them even more beautiful.

That is the inspiration of  Alan Rubin's sons, Alec & Bradley in creating their new blend also called "Kintsugi." Cigars, like the gold lacquer, are a bonding agent- bringing people from all walks of life together. Alec & Bradley Kintsugi cigars were created to celebrate camaraderie.

First look. You would easily notice that gold band with beautiful blue and white with gold accents. Those details are meant to replicate the look of the fixed pottery the cigar is named after. The wrapper is light and has very little oil. It’s toothy Honduran wrapper is stunning. There are some visible veins and one seam that runs around the cigar.

Aroma. The aroma is of barnyard and a  hint of chocolate. The barnyard has a very strong hay/straw/grass smell. It is not off-putting but it is very strong. Additional scent of  sweet hay, milk chocolate, sweet cedar, manure, leather, honey, while the cold draw brings flavors of strong floral and dark chocolate, along with espresso beans, hay, leather, bread, white pepper, cedar and a distinct candied pecan sweetness.

Smoking Experience. The first third of the Kintsugi taste like red pepper, nuts and leather while the second third are coffee, white pepper and honey roasted peanuts. The flavor progresses on the final third with dominant notes of espresso, charred wood, bread.

Indeed, Alec & Bradley Kintsugi is work of art that must be experienced to be full appreciated.
