Cigar news: Here is the latest from the minds of Alec Bradley Cigar Company.
Alec Bradley Cigar Co.’s Black Market EstelÍ is expanding with the addition of a new size. The company has announced it will produce a limited edition proprietary Diamond shape vitola of its Black Market EstelÍ cigar. It will measure 6 1/4 x 54 with only 1,500 16-count boxes of it being released worldwide this year.
Black Market EstelÍ was a follow-up to the company’s Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut cigar that was released in 2014. In 2020, Black Market EstelÍ Diamond will replace the Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut.
Jonathan Lipson, Alec Bradley Cigar Co.’s director of sales, commented, “The Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut has been a hit with premium cigar enthusiasts every year since it was introduced. The shape pays homage to Alan Rubin’s triangular cigar–Trilogy. For 2020, we wanted to change things up a bit and try diamond pressing the superb Black Market EstelÍ blend. The Black Market EstelÍ Diamond is sure to please palates globally!”
To bolster the blend, Alec Bradley added an extra leaf of ligero Habano from Nicaragua. The additional leaf makes the blend bolder than other regular releases from the line. Black Market EstelÍ Diamond is medium to full-bodied and features a dark natural wrapper from Nicaragua, a double binder combination of Honduran and Nicaraguan leaves and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua. The MSRP per cigar before taxes is $9.85. The cigar is handcrafted at Plasencia Cigars in Nicaragua.
