“The Prensado Gran Belicoso was created in early 2019 during a retreat Alec Bradley held for its entire US staff in Central America. Based on the award-winning Prensado blend, the elegant 5 1/2” X 56 ring-gauge Gran Belicoso was limited to a total production run of 1300 ten-count boxes, never to be made again.

“However, in 2021 Jason Faulkenburg contacted Alec Bradley Director of Sales & Marketing, Jonathan Lipson, with hopes to commission the Prensado Gran Belicoso for Ash Quarterly’s ongoing support of Cigars For Warriors. Alec Bradley Founder, Alan Rubin, agreed to the project, as Cigars For Warriors is an organization near and dear to his heart. Only 2200 cigars were produced and will be featured at Ash Quarterly’s event on July 2, 2022, at Executive Cigar Lounge in Sanford, Florida, where consumers will have the ability to purchase and donate Prensado Gran Belicoso cigars directly to Cigars For Warriors. Additional cigars will be available in-store at both the Sanford and Melbourne locations of Executive Cigar Shop and Lounge, as well as online through Ash Quarterly.

“We’re honored that Jason chose Alec Bradley to make a cigar benefiting our brave men and women overseas,” Mr. Rubin said. “We generally don’t reissue single-run limited editions, but the cause was too compelling for me to say no.”

“Along with Ash Quarterly and Cigars For Warriors, Mr. Lipson will be onsite at the event to present the Prensado Gran Belicoso on behalf of Alec Bradley.”
