In what is perhaps the most elaborate “greatest hits” package that Alec Bradley has ever compiled, the Ten Year Anniversary Fine & Rare Set is making its way to retailers this week. To make such a box set possible, brand owner Alan Rubin went into his inventory archives and selected a series of aged cigars from the Fine & Rare brand, some of which, he says, date back to 2014.
The 10 Year Anniversary set contains 25 cigars—five each of the following Fine & Rare sizes:
TA25A, a 7 inch by 54 ring gauge figurado from 2014
HJ10-I, a 6 by 52 toro from 2016
BR12-13, a 6 by 52 torpedo from 2017
JRS10=(86), a 6 1/2 by 52 toro from 2018
HOF/506, a 6 1/4 by 54 box-pressed toro from 2019
Only 500 boxes are being released.
While the blend varies from size to size, cigars in the Fine & Rare line are composed of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco from various seed types, primings and ages. They are made in Honduras at the Raices Cubanas factory.
