Next month, Alan Rubin will pay tribute to his late father with the latest release of the Alec Bradley Fine & Rare.
It’s called the Alec Bradley Fine & Rare HOF/506 and unlike every Fine & Rare before it, this version will feature a picture of someone—David Rubin—as well as Rubin’s signature.
According to Cigar Aficionado, the new cigar is a 6 1/4 x 54 box-pressed toro that uses a wrapper from Trojes, Honduras over a mixture of Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers. Fine & Rare releases are said to use 10 different types of tobacco.
Like other Fine & Rares before it, the bands feature a plethora of information about the cigar—including when and who it was rolled by—as well as the signatures of company officials. David Rubin’s signature hasn’t been used before but will be added for this release.
Production is limited to 2,500 boxes of 10 cigars, with an MSRP of $21.90 per cigar. It will begin shipping on Nov. 15, the one year anniversary of David’s passing.
A representative for Alec Bradley said a press release would be issued tomorrow.
