The Alec Bradley Post Embargo, a cigar that made its debut at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show has now made its way to retailers. While the cigar is the same composition of what was shown off at the 2015 IPCPR, the packaging is very different.
Alec Bradley owner Alan Rubin was quoted by Cigar Insider as saying the original packaging was “too cartoonish”, thus it was revamped. The new packaging has more of a classic look incorporate elements of both Cuba and the U.S.
The Post Embargo project is meant to be a tribute to the new era of relations between the United States and Cuba once the Cuban Embargo is lifted.
While the cigars are now hitting shelves, a soft-launch for the Alec Bradley Post Embargo occurred at Pennsylvania retail chain Cigar Cigars.
