Another new Alec Bradley product has been spotted in a humidor of a retailer.
This time the store is STOGIES World Class Cigars and the cigar is the Alec Bradley Havana Sun Grown. The line, which retails from $7.35-8.30, is offered in four sizes: Churchill, robusto, toro and torpedo. It appears to be sold in boxes of 20.
Like many companies, Alec Bradley has sent a small number of retailers boxes of future product prior to Aug. 8. That date is when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) began regulating premium cigars. Any cigar released after Aug. 8 would be subject to FDA pre-approval, meaning a company could not sell it until FDA granted the product approval.
As such, many companies released a plethora of product to a handful of retailers prior to the Aug. 8 deadline. The company has previously declined to comment on details of many new lines like this, stating that it will provide more details once the cigars receive a more formal, national launch.
