My father , brother Alec and I have been asked more times than I can count about making a Gatekeeper Diamond. We're humbled to have the opportunity to bring a cigar to market that we already know will be highly coveted. We really enjoy exhibiting at TPE. And I'm honored to present the Gatekeeper Diamond Press to such a large group of our tobacconist partners!

The Gatekeeper Diamond Press uses the same blend components as the regular production Gatekeeper however, the percentages have been slightly tweaked for an optimal smoking experience and to account for the unique compression required to make Alec Bradley's signature diamond shape. The blend uses an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaraguan and Dominican filler.

Only 1500 boxes of Gatekeeper Diamond Press are being produced for global distribution. Retail price per cigar has been set to $12.75. The cigars are expected to ship in late April.

Gatekeeper is the third cigar line to be produced in the Limtied Edition Diamond Press shape, preceded by the Nica Puro Diamond Rough Cut and Black Market Estelí Diamond Press. Gatekeeper Diamond Press is being rolled at Tobacos de Oriente – Danlí, .
