FT. LAUDERDALE, FL. – For the first time in two years, Alec Bradley Cigar Co. has announced the global release of two premium cigars. Prensado Lost Art and Black Market Estelí are iterations of two of Alec Bradley’s most popular cigar lines and will be unveiled during the 2017 International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) show.
“IPCPR is the perfect opportunity to share our latest product innovation with tobacconists from around the world,” says Alan Rubin, owner of Alec Bradley Cigar Co. “Lost Art and Estelí have been previously marketed in limited quantities and are now ready for their global release.”
The Prensado and Black Market brands are favorites among Alec Bradley smokers and are critically acclaimed. Prensado was Cigar Aficionado’s “Cigar of the Year” in 2011, scoring a 96 rating. Black Market holds a 90 rating from Cigar Aficionado, has been rated Robb Report’s “Best of the Best” and most recently received Cigar Journal’s “Best Brand Honduras” Trophy.
The blends and flavor profiles of both Prensado Lost Art and Black Market Estelí were created to be compliments to their original lines.
“There is a natural succession among these premium iterations,” Alan says. “We have taken two well-performing brands that are highly rated and fan favorites, and we introduced unique variations that still live up to their original namesake.”
Prensado Lost Art features five different Central American tobaccos and will be a pressed cigar presented in a 20-count box. They will come in the following sizes: 5 x 52 Robusto, 6 ¼ x 52 Gran Toro, 7 x 50 Churchill, 6 ½ x 52 Torpedo and 6 x 60 Double T (Gordo).
