Shame on me for not having a picture on this one, but Alec Bradley was also active at the 2011 IPCPR Trade Show.   Earlier this year, Alec Bradley unveiled a their American Classic Blend.  This was released prior to IPCPR and was Alec Bradley’s foray into the Connecticut Shade craze that has hit the cigar industry in 2011.   At IPCPR 2011, Alec Bradley debuted a new Maduro – the Alec Bradley Black Market.

The band features a covering from the foot going about halfway up the cigar with another band in the center.  It’s very different and raw packaging for Alec Bradley, but I liked it.

Let’s take a look at the particulars:
