Alec Bradley, the renowned cigar manufacturer, is set to provide attendees of the highly anticipated 2023 PCA Show in Las Vegas with an exclusive sneak preview of their latest creation – the Fine & Rare BCN-143.

Crafted with Precision at Raices Cubanas Factory:
The Fine & Rare BCN-143 is meticulously handcrafted by a single pair of master artisans at the renowned Raices Cubanas factory in Danli, Honduras. To create this extraordinary blend, tobaccos from the finest crops are carefully selected, meeting the exacting standards set forth by the Alec Bradley team. The blend undergoes rigorous testing across multiple vitolas, with the final format chosen to deliver the deepest complexity and enhance the smoking experience.
A Symphony of Flavors:
BCN-143 is a medium-bodied offering, enveloped in a Honduran Trojes Criollo 98 wrapper sourced from the La Vega Coyol Farm in Honduras. The double binder features Honduran Trojes Criollo 98 and Nicaraguan Esteli Criollo, while the filler comprises a selection of ligero tobaccos: Honduran Jamastran Criollo 98, Nicaraguan Jalapa Criollo 98, Honduran Trojes Criollo 98, Honduran Jamastran Criollo 98, Honduran Trojes Corojo 99, Honduran Jamastran Corojo, and Nicaraguan Jalapa Corojo 99, all from the viso priming.
A Journey of Refinement:
The result is a cigar that takes refinement to another level. The experience begins with balanced opening notes of honey and natural sweetness, gradually building to encompass hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. As the journey progresses, the sweetness recedes, revealing earthy and woody notes that captivate the senses. The culmination unveils a long, satisfying finish, with a harmonious interplay of honeyed sweetness, hazelnut, and earth that envelops the palate.
