This is a new blend from Alec Bradley. "Vice Press" will be presented in three formats featuring extra-large ring gauges: 5 x 64 robusto, 6.5 x 62 toro and 7 x 60 torpedo.
From the press release:
The blend consists of a diverse combination of Nicaraguan, Honduran and Mexican long-fillers with a double binder consisting of Costa Rican and Colombia tobaccos pressed inside a dark, oily Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper leaf. The smoke is medium-bodied with a creamy texture and dense, robust undertones enhanced by a natural sweetness for which Jalapa Valley wrapper is known.
Originally introduced in 2007 as an addition to the Alec Bradley MAXX series, Vice (whose double entendre name was inspired by its box-pressed shape), was presented in an awe-inspiring chest of 50 cigars with sliding Spanish cedar trays.
Alec Bradley Cigars will officially debut the new Vice Press cigars in New Orleans at the annual International
Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) trade show in August.
