Alec Bradley has begun shipping the latest installment in its Fine & Rare series, a cigar that brand owner Alan Rubin calls the most important release in the line to date.
The cigar is a tribute to his father, David Rubin, who passed away in late 2018. “My father brought joy to everyone around him,” Rubin said via a press release. “The only way I knew how to spread joy in his honor was through a cigar that was dedicated to him.”
The Alec Bradley Fine & Rare HOF / 506 measures 6 1/4 inches long with a 54 ring gauge gran toro that gets a box press. It features a wrapper from Trojes, Honduras over a mixture of Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers. It is offered in 10-count boxes, with 2,500 boxes produced by the Raíces Cubanas factory in Honduras. Each cigar is priced at $21.90 before taxes.
Alan and David Rubin worked alongside each other since 1982, building a successful fastener business together. After the sale of that company, Alan started Alec Bradley Cigar Company while his father went into retirement, though he quickly found a home working at Alec Bradley.
Fine & Rare debuted in 2011, with the central concept being that the cigar would use ten different aged and rare tobaccos.
