TAA 2017 Exclusive Release Series Puts a New Twist on Cigar Enthusiasts’ Favorite
CABO SAN LUCAS – Cigar aficionados who love Alec Bradley Black Market will eagerly anticipate Black Market Illicit, a limited iteration of its most popular premium cigar to be released this summer as part of the Tobacconists’ Association of America’s 2017 exclusive series. Production for the exclusive cigar was announced during the TAA’s 49th Annual Meeting in Cabo San Lucas last week.
Black Market Illicit is a 6-inch by 50 ring Toro featuring a robust Nicaraguan wrapper leaf and flavorful Honduran and Nicaraguan dual binder wrapped around fillers from small-yield farms in Nicaragua.
“This is the first exclusive series cigar Alec Bradley has developed for TAA retailers since we introduced the Prensado Figurado in 2013,” said Alan Rubin, owner of Alec Bradley Cigar Company. “We like to describe this iteration of our number one-selling cigar as Black Market ‘on steroids.’ True to its name, Black Market Illicit embodies the characteristics that have earned its namesake consistent ratings of 90 among cigar enthusiasts around the world. This iteration was specially designed to cater to TAA’s exclusive network of retailers.”
MRSP for Black Market Illicit is $8.75 per cigar and it will be available in a 22-count box. The exclusive release will be available at TAA retailers nationwide beginning in July.
