Cigar aficionados and whiskey connoisseurs, get ready to embark on a journey like no other as Alec Bradley introduces “The Uncut Series.” This exciting platform, born from a collaboration with Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG), promises a unique fusion of premium cigars and single barrel whiskey, kicking off with a remarkable pairing of Alec Bradley Double Broadleaf cigars and Starlight Rye Whiskey Cigar Batch, matured in exotic Brazilian Amburana barrels.
A Perfect Harmony of Flavor and Craftsmanship
The Starlight Rye Whiskey Cigar Batch, with its robust character and 113.1 proof (56.5% ABV), has been meticulously aged for four and a half years in rare, sustainably-sourced Brazilian Amburana casks. This aging process infuses the whiskey with distinctive notes of maple syrup and cinnamon, balanced by a backdrop of fresh bread, reminiscent of a delightful French toast experience.
Complementing this exquisite whiskey is the Alec Bradley Double Broadleaf cigar, carefully selected by Alec Bradley Brand Ambassador Bradley Rubin. Known for its complex layers of earthy, woody, and peppery notes, this cigar is a harmonious partner to the Starlight Rye Whiskey.
The Vision Behind “The Uncut Series”
Alec Rubin, Alec Bradley’s brand manager of strategic partnerships, shares his vision for “The Uncut Series.” He describes it as a celebration of the unbreakable bond between cigars and spirits, a journey that will unite boutique players and powerhouse brands in the spirits industry. With an aim to pair one-of-a-kind single barrel picks with STG’s renowned portfolio of handmade cigars, “The Uncut Series” promises to elevate the enjoyment of both passions.
A Collaboration Built on Tradition
Christian Huber, the seventh-generation master distiller of Starlight Distillery, expresses his honor in being the American whiskey brand chosen to launch STG’s “Uncut Series.” He draws parallels between the traditions of cigar makers and the craft of distilling spirits—a terroir-driven legacy passed down through generations to create memorable moments of enjoyment.
