AB - THE LINEAGE - Toro
I am a family man with a passion for cigar making. The company is named after my two sons, Alec & Bradley. I truly hoped that when they came of age, they would join me on my journey in the premium cigar business. I set aside rare tobaccos for that day, if it came. Crafted with those tobaccos, The Lineage is dedicated to my sons, both of whom now work alongside me every day, continuing the legacy as second generation cigar makers.
Since the early 2000s, brand owner Alan Rubin and his Alec Bradley Cigar Company have attained legendary status among premium cigar smokers by producing one top rated blend after another. With lines such as the Prensado, whose Churchill size was named the Cigar of the Year in 2011, this company, named after Rubin?s sons Alec and Bradley, has many other highly rated gems in their award-winning brand portfolio.
This includes the 94-rated Alec Bradley Family Blend, the 91-rated Nica Puro, 90-rated Black Market, and the Tempus, that has been ranked in Cigar Aficionado?s ?Top 25? list on numerous occasions, including a Top 5 appearance in 2017. Following in their fathers? famous footsteps, the Rubin sons, mentioned above, have added a magnificent blend to this enormously popular lineup called Gatekeeper.
