Alec Bradley Announces Pre-Sale of New LE Black Market Esteli Diamond
Today, Alec Bradley Cigar Co. announced the world wide pre-sale of the limited edition Black Market Esteli Diamond. This LE will be in their proprietary “Diamond” shape. The Black Market Esteli Diamond will be a 6 1/4 x 54 and will come 16 count boxes, and is limited to a production run of 1500 boxes.

The Black Market Esteli Diamond is sure to please palates globally.”
The 1500 boxes of Black Market Esteli Diamond are on pre-sale now to tobacconists worldwide. Alec Bradley plans on shipping the Black Market Esteli Diamond in June.
