Alec Bradley has announced that it will be rereleasing five of its Fine & Rare editions via a set that will recognize the line’s 10th anniversary.

Inside each box will be five of the following five cigars, all from the original production run:

The company has not announced a release date, other than to say that it will ship by the end of the year, but did say that each set—a total of 25 cigars—will cost $600, with just 500 boxes released. Additionally there will be a “mystery item” inside each box, according to a report by Cigar Aficionado, through which Alec Bradley announced the project.

Fine & Rare debuted in 2011 and has been an annual release for the company, built around the idea of using 10 types of tobacco in a single cigar. The blend changes on a year to year basis, with the size generally around a 6 x 52 toro, though that has varied a bit as well. All of them have been produced at the Raíces Cubanas factory in Danlí, Honduras.

A representative from Alec Bradley has not yet returned an email seeking confirmation of the report’s accuracy as well as additional information, likely due to an exclusivity agreement that Alec Bradley has with the magazine.

Update (July 10, 2020) — Alec Bradley issued a press release about this today; details and images have been added to the story.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
