Alec Bradley Cigar Co. is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Fine & Rare series by releasing 500 limited edition boxes containing all five of the Fine & Rare releases. Fine & Rare is handcrafted at the Raices Cubanas Factory in Danlí, Honduras.
Fine & Rare is the result of Alec Bradley Cigar Co. founder Alan Rubin’s quest to create a cigar using 10 different aged and selected tobaccos. Making a cigar with that much tobacco is a challenge and requires that just one pair–one roller, one buncher–work together to create this cigar. Because of the difficulty in creating this cigar, Fine & Rare has been envisioned as a limited edition release. Since 2011 there has been five different blends released annually in limited edition 10-count boxes. Some of the iterations had more than one release. For each Fine & Rare batch, Rubin saved part of the production and had them stored deep in the factory’s aging room in anticipation of this commemorative set.
“I’m really excited to be able to present the Fine & Rare 10 Year Anniversary set,” Alan said in a press release. “I went through all of the different iterations and chose the vintages that had the best overall flavor development and performance. Fine & Rare is an ever-evolving concept and leaving batches to age and re-release adds another dimension to the complexity of the project.”
The Alec Bradley Fine & Rare 10 Year Anniversary box set will contain the following cigars:
- 5 Cigars: Release Year: 2014. Series Name: TA25A. Figurado (7 x 54)
