A new chapter in the world of premium cigars unfolds as the Alec Bradley TAA Edition, exclusively crafted for the Tobacconists Association of America (TAA), begins its journey to aficionados. Fresh from its unveiling at the TAA’s annual convention in March 2023, this limited-edition blend is now making its way to retailers.
A Fusion of Flavors and Expertise
Meticulously handcrafted at the esteemed Raices Cubanas factory in Danli, Honduras, the Alec Bradley TAA Edition is a testament to the art of cigar making. At its heart lies a proprietary Criollo 98 wrapper from Trojes, Honduras. This blend is further enhanced by a double binder, combining Criollo 98 from Esteli, Nicaragua, and Jamastran, Honduras. The filling? A carefully chosen selection of Criollo tobaccos from Trojes and Jalapa, Nicaragua, as well as Jamastran. This combination promises a medium-plus-bodied smoking experience brimming with complex notes of cocoa, cedar, leather, earth, and a natural sweetness that tantalizes the palate.
A Collaborative Masterpiece
Jonathan Lipson, Alec Bradley’s senior brand manager, sheds light on the blend’s unique genesis. “Our dedication to the TAA’s Exclusive Series program is unwavering. In crafting this blend, we aimed to merge the preferred profiles of Alec Bradley smokers with the insights of Raices Cubanas’ master blenders. We’re confident this blend will captivate both our loyal customers and new enthusiasts alike.”
Limited Edition, Unmatched Quality
True to its exclusive nature, production of the Alec Bradley TAA Edition is limited to just 500 ten-count boxes. This scarcity ensures each cigar is a prized possession, available solely through TAA retailers. The 6” x 52 Toro is poised to become a sought-after item, retailing at a suggested price of $13.99 per cigar.
Distributed by Forged Cigar Company, the Alec Bradley TAA Edition is not just a cigar; it’s a celebration of tradition, craftsmanship, and the collaborative spirit that defines the cigar community. As these cigars make their way to aficionados, they carry with them the promise of an exceptional smoking experience, steeped in the heritage and expertise of Alec Bradley.
