Today, Alec Bradley announced that their limited edition vitola of the Nica Puro Line – Diamond Rough Cut is shipping globally. The special size is an exclusive diamond shape measuring 6 1/4″ X 54. The blend, as the name suggests, is Nicaragua puro. Only 1500 boxes of the Alec Bradley Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut will be sold this time around. Pricing is set at $9.38 per cigar. It comes in boxes of 16.
The Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut was first released in 2014 and has been released annually since. The blend also differs from the rest of the line with the addition of one ligero leaf to the filler, so it is stronger.
“The Nica Puro blend is smoking incredibly right now,” said Alan Rubin, founder of Alec Bradley Cigar Co. “Enthusiasts and tobacconists ask for the Nica Puro Diamond all year round, but the cigars aren’t easy to make. Due to the unique shape we only have the ability to produce 1500 boxes per run, so it’s an exciting time at Alec Bradley when we have the opportunity to present Diamonds to our fans.”
The idea for the Alec Bradley Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut came from Plasencia Cigars in Nicaragua where the line is rolled. It pays homage to the triangular shaped Alec Bradley Trilogy cigar line Alan created many years ago.
Alan describes Nica Puro Diamond Rough Cut as well balanced with a bold flavor, distinct richness and natural sweetness. “The blend represents my take on a Nicaraguan puro,” Alan continued. “Nica Puro, in general, and the Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut are must tries for Nicaraguan cigar lovers!”
