The Alec Bradley HJ10-I blend is making its third appearance onto tobacconists’ shelves worldwide. The newly released 2016 Fine & Rare is a 6 inch by 52 ring gauge cigar boasting ten different tobaccos ranging from 3 years aged to 6 years aged. Traditionally an end-of-the-year-release, Fine & Rare has taken on multiple shapes with different blend designations over the years, always featuring ten different tobaccos in the blends.
The HJ10-I blend of the 2016 Fine & Rare release features seven different filler tobaccos from Jalapa and Esteli, Nicaragua and the Trojes Region of Honduras, a Trojes and Esteli double binder and a corojo wrapper from Trojes. Fine & Rare is rolled at Raices Cubanas in Danli, Honduras and limited to 2000 boxes of ten cigars.
“The Alec Bradley Fine & Rare has been a holiday time release since its inception in 2011,” said Alan Rubin, owner of Alec Bradley Cigar Company. “After critical acclaim and popular demand, we felt that 2016 was the year to reintroduce the Alec Bradley Fine & Rare HJ10-I. Though the cigar is medium-to-full bodied, we blend for flavor; so it’s balanced, smooth and very approachable.”
Fine & Rare HJ10-I 2016 is available for USD 16.00 per cigar (EUR 18,00 in Germany).
