Alec Bradley Cigar Co.’s Fine & Rare will be available in a 7 x 50 Churchill in April, the 11th release of the signature line.
The blend features a wrapper from Trojes, Honduras, with binder and filler leaves from Nicaragua and Honduras. The upcoming release will also include a special 11th cigar in its 10-count set, celebrating the 11th anniversary of the line. Packing will feature a collectable high-gloss, two-tone blue box and ornate cigar bands. Fine & Rare is produced at Fabrica De Tobaccos Raices Cubanas- Danli, Honduras.
Originally scheduled to arrive to appointed tobacconists in November, packaging for the newest Fine & Rare iteration, dubbed BC-(13)4EV, was affected by supply chain issues.
“Alec Bradley brand advocates have come to expect the arrival of the annual release Fine & Rare to tobacconists in November,” Alec Bradley founder Alan Rubin said in a press release. “We are disappointed by the delay, but we are still very excited to bring BC-(13)4EV to market.”
First released in 2011, Fine & Rare is an iterative project created by Rubin to contain 10 unique tobaccos, more than any other blend in the world, the company says.
Alec Bradley urges retailers to sell the entire 11 cigar experience as a single unit. For the U.S. market, retail price is $260 per box. International prices will vary. Presale of Fine & Rare BC-(13)4EV to appointed tobacconists worldwide will begin shortly.
