CIGAR NEWS: ALEC BRADLEY SHIPPING FINE & RARE SIZE CALLED BC-(13)4EV
ALEC BRADKEY’S 11TH SIGNATURE LIMITED EDITION INCLUDES A NEW, UNDISCLOSED CIGAR
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Alec Bradley Cigar Co. today announced that they are shipping U.S. allotments of Fine & Rare BC-(13)4EV. First released in 2011, Fine & Rare is a recurrent project Alec Bradley Cigars founder Alan Rubin created to push the boundaries of cigar blending. To commemorate this 11th version of the Fine & Rare project, each set contains 11 cigars: Ten BC-(13)4EV cigars and a new undisclosed vitola, a BC-(13)4EV-B presented in its own coffin. Only 2,500 collectable Fine & Rare BC-(13)4EV sets were created for global distribution at Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas in Danlí, Honduras.
A First for the Fine & Rare Series
For this release Rubin went with a 7″ x 50 Churchill for the BC-(13)4EV—a first for the brand. And in what has become a defining characteristic of the Fine & Rare project, both cigars are blended with 10 unique tobaccos to achieve each blend’s extraordinary complexity, flavor and balance. Both cigars also boast an exclusive estate grown Honduran Trojes wrapper over rare binder and filler leaves from Nicaragua and Honduras. Additionally, all of the cigars for this release were rolled by the same pair of master rollers who have been entrusted to the Fine & Rare project since its inception.
The Secret Fine & Rare 2021 Cigar
As for the undisclosed BC-(13)4EV-B cigar, Mr. Rubin stated that Alec Bradley will not be the first to identify its size and shape. He wants tobacconists and enthusiasts to reveal and experience the cigar firsthand.
Presented in collectable high-gloss, two-tone blue box sets, Alec Bradley is urging tobacconists to sell the entire 11 cigar experience as a single unit. MSRP has been set to $260.00 per box, before any applicable taxes. Ship dates to international accounts were unavailable at time of publication.
