The Alec & Bradley Kintsugi was first announced back in March 2020. Kintsugi will be the third full scale release for Alec and Bradley Rubin. Kintsugi cigars were created to celebrate camaraderie. The brothers have also been the leads for the Gatekeeper and the Blind Faith lines. The Kintsugi release was originally scheduled around the 2020 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) trade show. Covid-19 concerns and shutdowns paused the Kintsugi production, and also forced the cancelation of the 2020 PCA show. An update came in July that Kintsugi would officially be offered for pre-order to tobacconists for a late 2020 delivery.
Alec & Bradley Kintsugi will come in 24 count white and gold filled cracked pattern boxes. Inside and out of the boxes are painted with traditional Japanese artwork. Kintsugi is being produced at Alec Bradley’s Raices Cubanas Factory in Danli, Honduras. Kintsugi will be offered in four sizes: Corona Gorda 5 5/8″ x 46 , Robusto 5” x 50, Toro 6” x 52, and Gordo 6” x 60. MSRP ranges from $7.25 to $9.85 per cigar before any applicable taxes. The wait is finally over, and Kintsugi is now shipping to tobacconists globally.
