The third regular production line from Bradley brothers Alec & Bradley, sons of Alec Bradley founder Alan Rubin, ‘Kintsugi’ (pronounced Kint-Su-Gee), will now be shipping Fall of 2020 and will be featured in their “The Traveling Roadshow”, starting July 13.
Originally announced in March of this year, the plan was to have the line ship in June, but due to COVID-19, production was delayed. Production has now resumed and the new timeline has a Fall 2020 delivery. The cigar is described as medium-bodied and blended with a Habano wrapper from the Trojes region of Honduras, two binders (Nicaraguan and Honduran), and fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua.
Kintsugi comes packaged in boxes of 24 with a golden filled-in crack pattern. The bands and interior box got their inspiration from traditional Japanese themes and artwork. It is rolled at the Raices Cubanas Factory in Danli, Honduras and will come in four sizes: Robusto 5” x 50 ($7.95) , Toro 6” x 52 ($8.80), Gordo 6” x 60 ($9.85) and Corona Gorda 5 5/8″ x 46 ($7.25).
Kintsugi will also be a part of the “The Traveling Roadshow” announced in June as a response to the cancellation of the 2020 PCA trade show. Four companies (Rocky Patel, Oliva, Alec Bradley, and Crowned Heads) joined together on a 15 city mini-trade show to help promote new lines and sales.
