Alec Bradley Cigar Co. have announced that they will be issuing the 11th release of Fine & Rare in April 2022. Originally scheduled to arrive to appointed tobacconists by November 18, 2021, packaging for the newest Fine & Rare iteration, dubbed BC-(13)4EV, has been affected by supply chain issues plaguing the premium cigar industry. Featuring a collectable high-gloss, two-tone blue box and ornate cigar bands, only 2500 Fine & Rare BC-(13)EV sets will be presented for global distribution.
“Alec Bradley brand advocates have come to expect the arrival of the annual release Fine & Rare to tobacconists in November,” said Alec Bradley founder, Alan Rubin. “We are disappointed by the delay, but we are still very excited to bring BC-(13)4EV to market!”
The first “Churchill” in the Fine & Rare series, the 7″ x 50 ring-gauge BC-(13)4EV showcases ten distinct tobaccos. The blend features a estate grown wrapper from Trojes, Honduras, adorning a blend of rare binder and filler leaves from Nicaragua and Honduras.
