Alec Bradley’s annual Fine & Rare is finally getting ready to roll out this April. It was originally scheduled to come out in November 2021 but supply chain issues caused a delay.

“Alec Bradley brand advocates have come to expect the arrival of the annual release of Fine & Rare to tobacconists in November,” said Alec Bradley founder, Alan Rubin. “We are disappointed by the delay, but we are still very excited to bring BC-(13)4EV to market.”

The blend for Fine & Rare changes with each release but it always features 10 different tobaccos in the blend. The BC-(13)4EV has a Honduran Criollo ’98 wrapper from the Trojes region; binders from Honduras and Nicaragua; and seven fillers all hailing from Nicaragua and Honduras. Only a single pair of rollers are tasked with making Fine & Rare.

Offered in one size, the BC-(13)4EV is a Churchill measuring 7 inches by 50 ring gauge. Production is limited to 2,500 high-gloss blue boxes, which will retail in the U.S. for $260 before taxes. While Fine & Rare usually comes in boxes of 10, a bonus eleventh cigar called the BC-(13)4EV-B will also be included in the set to commemorate 11 years since Fine & Rare debuted. The bonus smoke comes in a dark wooden coffin. Dimensions and blend details for the BC-(13)4EV-B are not being disclosed. 

Like all Fine & Rare releases before it, the new cigars are made in Honduras at the Raices Cubanas factory.
