Alec Bradley is shipping their annual Fine & Rare cigar with this year’s being dubbed HOF / 506. This version celebrates Alan Rubin’s late father, David Rubin who passed away November 2018. This year’s Fine & Rare HOF / 506 measures 6 1/4″ X 54 in a Gran Toro that is also box-pressed. Only 2,500 boxes of 10 were made. They will sell for $21.90 a cigar.
“My father brought joy to everyone around him,” Alan said. “The only way I knew how to spread joy in his honor was through a cigar that was dedicated to him.”
Alan and David worked together from 1982. Together they built a fastener business. After selling that company, Alan started Alec Bradley Cigar Company, as David went into retirement. Soon after, David came out of retirement to help at Alec Bradley. A couple years ago, Alan’s sons Alec and Bradley joined the company making three generations working at the same time.
“Getting to work beside my grandfather, father and brother at the same time is a unique situation that most people aren’t fortunate enough to experience,” Bradley Rubin said. “My grandfather’s work ethic and enthusiastic personality is something I will never forget and keeps me motivated every day I wake up. We are an extremely blessed family.”
“My early years working at the offices are filled with memories of my grandfather and lessons he gave me,” Alec Rubin reminisced. “That has helped mold me into the man I am today. I hope to carry those lessons in my personal life and into the future of the company.”
The idea of Fine & Rare uses ten different aged and rare tobaccos. It is rolled at Raices Cubanas Factory in Danlí, Honduras.
