The newest iteration of Alec Bradley Fine & Rare, a cigar that honors the father of company founder Alan Rubin, is now being sent to retailers around the world.

The 2019 version is called Alec Bradley Fine & Rare HOF/506 and it measures 6 1/4 inches long by 54 ring gauge. The cigar is made with a mix of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos, including a wrapper leaf from the Trojes region of Honduras. The cigars are rolled at the Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras and only two rollers made the cigar.

Production is being limited to 25,000 cigars (2,500 boxes, each containing 10 cigars), and the cigars carry a suggested retail price of $21.90.

Fine & Rare is a limited-edition project that dates back to 2011. The shapes and blends change, but what stays the same is the use of 10 tobaccos—a rarity in the cigar world—and its limited production.

This year’s Fine & Rare was made in honor of David Rubin, who passed away last year. David’s son Alan, who founded Alec Bradley in 1996, named the cigar company after his own two sons. Alec and Bradley now work in the company, and have even released two cigars on their own, Blind Faith and Gatekeeper.

Both Alec and Bradley actually had the fortune of working alongside their grandfather before his passing in 2018.

“Getting to work beside my grandfather, father and brother at the same time is a unique situation that most people aren’t fortunate enough to experience,” Bradley Rubin said in a press release. “My grandfather’s work ethic and enthusiastic personality is something I will never forget and keeps me motivated every day I wake up. We are an extremely blessed family.”

“My early years working at the offices are filled with memories of my grandfather and lessons he gave me,” said Alec Rubin. “That has helped mold me into the man I am today. I hope to carry those lessons in my personal life and into the future of the company.”
