Alex Spencer Reserve coming to Europe. Alex Spencer, the owner of Alex Spencer Reserve, and Arthur George Cigar Lounge are introducing the Alex Spencer Reserve The Mansa in the United Kingdom soon. Arthur George Cigar Lounge is a retailer, importer, and distributor from Stoke-on-Trent in the United Kingdom. They will act as the importer and distributor for England, Wales, and Scotland. 


To be approved to the market, tobacco products including cigars have to be tested and processed by the Public Health of England board and registered with all appropriate authorities. About 3 weeks ago, Alex Spencer and Artur George Cigar Lounge started the process. They are now awaiting approval to import, distribute, and sell the cigars. Generally, this process takes 7 weeks.

“I am grateful for the success we’ve had in such a relatively short period of time. The sheer support of the people and excited that the market has received the Mansa so well humbles me.” Alex Spencer explains. “I attribute our success to maintaining a disciplined approach on internal controls, a desire to better our best, and a laser focus on producing the best cigars possible. Our key strategic partnership with Tabacalera San Jeronimo and Dr. Gaby Kafie has been invaluable. I am grateful for his insight, due diligence, attention to detail, and friendship.”

Third release

The Mansa is available in two blends, one with a Habano wrapper and one with a Mexican San Andres wrapper. Both come in two sizes, a 6×54 Toro and a 7×60 Magnum. But there will be a third vitola soon. That is a box-press Robusto. Both blends and all vitolas come from the rolling tables of Tabacalera San Jeronimo in Honduras.

The cigars from Alex Spencer Reserve are available in the United States, New Zealand, Kuwait, Bahrein, and soon in the United Kingdom. That means that the brand is available on four different continents.
