Alec Bradley TAA Edition, created for the Tobacconists Association of America, is now shipping. The blend previously debuted to retailers at the annual TAA convention which was held in March, 2023.
Handcrafted at Raices Cubanas in Danli, Honduras, the blend is made with a proprietary Criollo 98 wrapper from Trojes, Honduras, has a double binder of Criollo 98 from Esteli, Nicaragua and Jamastran, Honduras, and features a selection of filler tobacco including Criollo from Trojes, Honduras and Criollo 98 from Jalapa, Nicaragua, in addition to Criollo from Jamastran, Honduras.
The blend provides a medium-plus-bodied smoking experience with notes of cocoa, cedar, leather and earth and a natural sweetness.
Jonathan Lipson, senior brand manager of Alec Bradley said, “Alec Bradley is a dedicated supporter of the TAA’s Exclusive Series program and when it came to developing the blend with our partners at Raices Cubanas, we set out to bring multiple perspectives to light. The blend is inspired by a profile preferred by Alec Bradley smokers, combined with the preferences of the factory’s master blenders. We believe the blend will have tremendous appeal at retail.”
Production of Alec Bradley TAA Edition was limited to 500 ten-count boxes, which will be available exclusively through TAA retailers.
The 6” x 52 Toro will sell for a suggested retail price of $13.99 per cigar.
