Alec Bradley Introduces New Black Market Cigars
Presented in rustic-looking, gray crate-style boxes, Black Market takes Alec Bradley's packaging to new heights. The eye-catching boxes are well-built enough to serve as humidors, and will very likely be sought by collectors. Even the bands are atypical. Rather than using the traditional band at the neck of the cigar, the cigars are wrapped in paper sleeves that cover only the bottom half of each vitola. Once the sleeve is removed a band is revealed positioned in the middle of the cigar.
"We've always wanted to do things that were more edgy," said Alec Bradley Cigars president, Alan Rubin." Starting with our triangular-shaped Trilogy cigars, to our extra-wide body Maxx line, to our personalized Family Blend cigars, the Black Market fits right in that groove from the blend to the box."
Alec Bradley Black Market cigars are offered in the following sizes:
Robusto - 5¼ x 52
Toro - 6 x 50
Churchill - 7 x 50
Torpedo - 6 1/8 x 54
Gordo - 6 x 60
The cigars will retail between $7.40 and $8.00 per cigar, and are expected to arrive on cigar store shelves by mid September.
