For the eighth consecutive year, Alec Bradley has a release of its limited Fine & Rare series. The 2018 installment brings back the JRS 10=(86) blend for the first time in three years and it’s appropriately titled Alec Bradley Fine & Rare JRS 10=(86) Blend Second Issue. This was a cigar that was showcased at the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show.

One difference is the packaging, as the boxes feature a zebra-like wood design.

The blends of the Alec Bradley Fine & Rare series feature ten different tobaccos. Each release varies from year to year in size and shape. At times, Alec Bradley has re-issued a previously released blend.

The Alec Bradley Fine & Rare RS 10=(86) Second Issue is once again a 6  1/2 x 56 vitola – the thickest size released in the Fine & Rare Series. A total of 2,500 ten-count boxes were allotted for this year’s release.
