Gatekeeper is one of the newest releases that will soon be presented during the IPCPR 2019, which will be held at the end of June in Las Vegas, in the United States.
This new line is a creation of the sons of Alan Rubin, which follows, with this new launch, the Blind Faith line that was presented last year.
For the new cigars, the two brothers worked together with Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, one of the most respected Dominican cigar manufacturers. The intention was to use Dominican tobaccos in the creation of the new Alec & Bradley Gatekeeper.
The Gatekeeper blend has already been unveiled:
- Wrapper: Ecuador Habano
- Binder: Nicaragua
- Fillers: Dominican Republic and Nicaragua
The cigars will be made at the Carrillo factory, Tabacalera La Aliaza, in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
Sizes belonging to the line have also been revealed, all come in boxes of 20 cigars:
- Corona: 42 x 130 mm (5 1/8 X 42, $8.75 per cigar)
- Robusto: 50 x 127 mm (5 X 50, $10.50 per cigar)
- Toro: 52 x 152 mm (6 X 52, $11.50 per cigar)
- Gordo: 60 x 152 mm (6 X 60, $12.25 per cigar)
You will have to wait for the IPCPR trade show to begin, where they will announce when the cigar will be available.
