Alec Bradley Cigar Company has announced a new limited edition sampler known as Reclaimed. It’s a set of limited edition 6 1/4 x 54 Figurados for seven Alec Bradley blends packaged in real factory-worn cigar molds. A total of 800 individually numbered Reclaimed samplers have been produced.
The seven blends included in the sampler are:
Alec Bradley Black Market
Alec Bradley Medalist
Alec Bradley Prensado
Alec Bradley Magic Toat
Alec Bradley Maxx
Alec & Bradley Gatekeeper
Alex Bradley Tempus
“Reclaimed epitomizes the creative nature of Alec Bradley, the cigar culture and tobacciana,” said Alec Bradley Director of Sales & Marketing, Jonathan Lipson in a press release. “Each individually numbered Reclaimed factory-worn cigar mold is unique and the ultra-limited cigars enclosed are exclusive to the sampler. Reclaimed provides our brand advocates the opportunity to experience premium cigar history.”
The concept behind the name “Reclaimed” is that the company reclaimed 800 antiquated cigar molds, ultimately saving them from obsolescence and destruction. Each upcycled mold is unique in source, wear, and size. In order to safely hold the sevenfFigurados, a rectangular cigar slot was carefully routed into the center of each mold. The dimensions thereof are universal across all Reclaimed samplers to protect the structural integrity of even the smallest mold in the lot.
Alec Bradley says that unlike most of its projects where branding is built around the cigar, Reclaimed’s contents needed to be built around the container. Choosing a vitola for the project could only come after establishing the carved-out mold’s capacity. Once the dimensions were confirmed, a 6 1/4? x 54 ring-gauge Figurado was selected for its sleek lines and unique silhouette to complement the rugged beauty of a re-envisioned cigar mold.
“These 800 cigar molds may have reached the end of their manufacturing process lifecycle, but their usefulness and novelty have yet to expire,” added, Bradley Rubin. ‘Repurposing them to house limited edition cigars is a fun way to bring a little piece of the factory to our customers and enhance the overall smoking experience.”
Pricing for the Reclaimed sampler is set at $79.99 per sampler. Delivery of the Alec Bradley Reclaimed Samplers is expected for mid-November.
