Alec Bradley Cigars introduces new "Vice Press" Cigars

The blend consists of a diverse combination of  Nicaraguan, Honduran and Mexican long-fillers with a double binder consisting of Costa Rican and Colombia tobaccos pressed inside a dark, oily Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper leaf. The smoke is medium-bodied with a creamy texture and dense, robust undertones enhanced by a natural sweetness for which Jalapa Valley wrapper is known.

Originally introduced in 2007 as an addition to the Alec Bradley MAXX cigars series, Vice (whose double entendre name was inspired by its box-pressed shape), was presented in an awe-inspiring chest of 50 cigars with sliding Spanish cedar trays.

"Though the cigars sold very well, the size of the chest proved to be a challenge for display purposes," said company president, Alan Rubin. "So, for the new line, we remodeled it into a beautiful chest like display of 20 making it more convenient for both tobacconists and consumers.

Alec Bradley Cigars will officially debut the new Vice Press cigars in New Orleans at the annual International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) trade show in August. The new Vice boxes will surely attract the attention of the consumers, but it's the flavor and aroma of the new cigars that should attract the most discriminating cigar connoisseurs even more.
