What can arguably be called one of the world’s most unique cigar shapes will return to the market next month. The Triangular Alec Bradley Trilogy ships in a limited edition and is expected to arrive in retailers in November.
The trilogy first appeared in the early 2000s, when Alec Bradley brand owner Alan Rubin recalled the words of a colleague who said there were just too many round cigars. on the market. Meeting the challenge, Rubin went to Home Depot, found a DeWalt saw, and built his own triangular shaped cigar molds. Cigars had been off the market for over a decade, until Alec Bradley rolled out 300 boxes of a store-exclusive Robusto in August for Florida retailer Smoke Inn, with the promise of an upcoming Toro. in the near future for the entire US market. .
Rubin’s son, Bradley, who works with his father and brother Alec, has spearheaded Trilogy’s comeback. âI started asking questions about the Trilogy relaunch when I started in the family business in 2017,â he said. âWhen I got the green light for Trilogy, my two goals main was to create something beautiful to honor my father’s accomplishments and to celebrate Alec Bradley’s many successes. “
Trilogy, true to its name, has three components: Authentic Corojo, Exotic Maduro and Native Cameroon. While cigars share the same binder and Honduran seed fillings from Connecticut Nicaragua and Honduras, it’s the wrappers that set them apart: Authentic Corojo is rolled with a Honduran Corojo wrapper from the Jamastran Valley, Exotic Maduro features a A dark Nicaraguan cover sheet from the Jalapa region and native Cameroon is draped with a Cameroonian leaf grown in Africa.
Measuring 6 by 52 inches, the Toro will be presented in boxes designed to resemble the triangular cigar molds made by Alan Rubin in the early 2000s. The cigars have a suggested retail price of $ 15 each.
Production of the Toro Trilogy was originally planned for just 3,000 cans (1,000 of each mix), but Robusto’s positive response led the company to double production to 6,000 cans.
The cigars are made in Honduras by the Plasencias in their Tobacos De Oriente factory.
