The Alec Bradley Fine & Rare HOF/506 2019 is a cigar made in Honduras, at the Fábrica de Tabacos Raíces Cubanas. This line is an evolving project, and this is the ninth edition released. The first Fine & Rare cigar dates back to 2011 and since then, every year, a new cigar came out. Fine & Rare has been seen in many different formats since 2011, but the most commonì has been the Toro. Cigars are packed in 10 count boxes, where every single cigar is held firmly.
The Fine & Rare HOF/506 was released in 2019, to honor the father of company founder Alan Rubin. Production is limited to 25.000 cigars (2,500 boxes).
The cigars are very well made, and they are box-pressed. The colorado wrapper is silky to the touch. The band, as usual, is pretty big and written on it, there are many details about the cigar, such as the number of cigars made, the roll date, the release date and some other info.
