News: Critically Acclaimed Black Market Esteli Blend in Proprietary Diamond Shape Now Shipping!

Press Release
For Immediate Release

Alec Bradley Cigar Co. Now Shipping Limited Edition Black Market EstelÍ Diamond

After Covid-19 Stoppages, Proprietary Diamond Shaped Cigars Now Shipping

Fort Lauderdale, FL (October 2, 2020) – Alec Bradley Cigar Co. today announced that the long anticipated limited edition Black Market Estelí Diamond cigars will begin shipping to tobacconists this week. Originally scheduled for a June 2020 release, the importation of the 1500 sixteen-count boxes was halted due to Covid-19 related concerns. Alec Bradley pre-sold the entire production to tobacconists in March 2020.

The Black Market EstelÍ Diamond is the follow-up to the popular and critically acclaimed Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut which was first introduced in 2014. In 2020 the Black Market EstelÍ Diamond will be replacing the Nica Puro Diamond Rough-Cut. The proprietary diamond shape pays homage to Trilogy, a triangular shaped cigar created by Alec Bradley’s founder, Alan Rubin.

Due to the unique shape, the Black Market Esteli Diamond requires extra care in the manufacturing process. The base Black Market Esteli blend is rolled with an extra filler leaf of Ligero Habano from Nicaragua and then carefully pressed to its diamond shape before going into aging.

“We’re delighted to finally ship the Black Market Esteli Diamonds,” said Alec Bradley Director of Sales & Marketing, Jonathan Lipson. “Although inadvertent, the extra time in the aging room allowed the tobaccos to marry even longer, bringing out even richer flavor notes. Not only is this a limited edition, this is now an extra special release!”

The 1500 boxes of Black Market EstelÍ Diamond are now shipping to tobacconists worldwide. The medium to full bodied Diamond features a dark natural wrapper from Nicaragua, a double binder combination of Honduran and Nicaraguan leaves and fillers from Nicaragua. Black Market EstelÍ Diamonds are being presented in 16 count diamond shaped boxes and will retail in the US, before any applicable taxes, for $9.85 per cigar. Alec Bradley Black Market Esteli Diamond cigars are produced at Plasencia Cigars Nicaragua.
