Alec Bradley New York

If you live or are near New York City, you know that the tobacco tax is ridiculously high. Taxing tobacco won’t stop anyone from buying it, all it does is put good cigar shops out of business because you can’t buy as much as you want because prices are too high because of the tax.

One good thing to come out of it is that cigar companies started making cigars for the New York market. They created great, hand-made cigars at a relatively low price so that even once the New York tobacco tax is added, it is a nice price point that doesn’t break the bank.

Alec Bradley is one of those cigar companies. They created the New York line, and I smoke the Empire Toro, which is 6 x 54. It has a beautiful dark wrapper with an almost reddish tint to it. This was a good looking cigar and I was looking forward to cutting and lighting it. The cigar is balanced nicely, with a good draw to it as well. I picked up flavors of wood, chocolate and some leather as well as a nice cedar to it. This is a great cigar with a good price point for NYC. When you are in New York, make sure to try one out. If you have, let me know what you think in the comments below.
