Alec Bradley’s new limited-edition, diamond-shaped Black Market Estelí is now heading to cigar shops worldwide, after a delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

A follow-up to the 91-point Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut, Black Market Estelí Diamond comes in only one size, which measures 6 1/4 inches by 54 ring gauge. Unlike traditional box-pressed cigars that have a rectangular press, the new Black Market has been molded into a unique diamond shape with four sides of the same length, known as a rhombus in the parlance of geometric shapes.

Like other Black Market Estelí cigars, the new Diamond is made with two binders (a combination of Honduran and Nicaraguan leaves) and filler from Nicaragua, all covered in a wrapper from Nicaragua. According to the company, an extra leaf of ligero grown in Nicaragua has been added to the filler, making the blend a bit bolder.

Only 1,500 boxes, each holding 16 smokes, of the Black Market EstelÍ Diamond were produced by Plasencia Cigars Nicaragua. The new size will retail in the U.S., before taxes, for $9.85 per cigar.
