Alec Bradley Ships Fresh Batch Of Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut

Alec Bradley Cigar Co. has a new shipment of its limited-edition Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut heading to cigar retailers worldwide. It is the fourth production run for this cigar, which is known for its sharply pressed diamond shape, and will be limited to 1,500 boxes.

"2018 has been a big year for the Nica Puro Diamond," said Alan Rubin, founder of Alec Bradley, in a press release. The company added that demand for Diamond Rough-Cut has increased since it received a 91-point rating from Cigar Insider last June. But the diamond-shaped vitola is difficult to produce and requires the use of a special cigar mold, so it will remain a limited-production smoke.

Alec Bradley first introduced Diamond Rough-Cut in 2014 and the cigar has shipped in limited quantities on three separate occasions, most recently in 2017. The cigars are produced by Plasencia Cigars in Nicaragua.

Diamond Rough-Cut is rolled with only Nicaraguan tobaccos. The blend is a slightly modified version of the original Nica Puro blend, but is said to contain a bit of extra ligero in the filler.

The cigar measures 6 1/4 inches by 54 ring gauge and comes packed in boxes of 16. Each Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut retails for $9.13 per cigar.
