For almost a decade, we have tried to bring our customers something really special on Thanksgiving Evening. We’re again teaming up with Alec Bradley to bring you the annual release of Fine & Rare.
Fine & Rare, the limited-edition Alec Bradley cigar rolled with 10 different tobaccos, will be available in VERY LIMITED quantities starting Thanksgiving evening, November 22nd. Since 2011, the company has released small quantities of its most complicated cigar blend, rolled in different shapes with Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos from various regions and crop years. This year, Fine & Rare returns to cigar shops in a form called JRS10 = (86), a size that first appeared in 2015 and scored 89 points (most of those that bought these hard to get cigars rated it much higher.)
JRS10 = (86) measures 6 1/2 inches by 56 ring gauge. This year, the company is calling the size Gran Toro. The parejo is made with a Honduran wrapper from Trojes draped over a double binder from Nicaragua and Honduras, with a variety of Nicaraguan and Honduran filler tobaccos.
We open the shop on Thanksgiving Evening at 7:30 PM, with deserts and some great beverages on hand, to watch the annual Thanksgiving Night Game — this year the Saints host the Falcons. A few of our regulars will be bringing various Ports, Bourbons & Scotches to share.
If you’re in town, please plan to join us. If you’re traveling, let us know in advance so we can allocate our very limited selection of this year’s Fine & Rare accordingly.
