Alec Bradley Fine & Rare Returns as a Parejo for 2018

Fine & Rare, the limited-edition Alec Bradley cigar rolled with 10 different tobaccos, is headed back to stores this month. Since 2011, the company has released small quantities of its most complicated cigar blend, rolled in different shapes with Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos from various regions and crop years. This year, Fine & Rare returns to cigar shops in a form called JRS10 = (86), a size that first appeared in 2015 and scored 89 points.

JRS10 = (86) measures 6 1/2 inches by 56 ring gauge. This year, the company is calling the size Gran Toro. The parejo is made with a Honduran wrapper from Trojes draped over a double binder from Nicaragua and Honduras, with a variety of Nicaraguan and Honduran filler tobaccos.

The cigar is priced at $21.90 and ships in eye-catching boxes that hold 10 cigars and are designed to look like zebra wood. Only 2,500 boxes will be released on October 24.

“Fine & Rare is an ever-evolving project,” Alec Bradley brand owner Alan Rubin said. “It is a concept more than a cigar. Fine & Rare has been a double figurado, it has been a torpedo and a parejo.”

Alec Bradley Fine & Rare is rolled at the Raices Cubanas Factory in Danlí, Honduras.
