Selected Tobacco adds two new sizes to Byron line; updated packaging
Founded in 1850, the Byron brand is a longstanding marque as one of the oldest brands in production today. Selected Tobacco is pleased to announce the addition of 2 new sizes to the line, as well as updated packaging.
The Serie Siglo XIX, carefully blended by Nelson Alfonso with a goal of best representing Cuban Cigars of the 19th Century is now available in a 6 x 56, known as the Grand Poemas.
The Serie Siglo XX – also blended by Nelson Alfonso – aims at representing Cuban Cigars of the 20th Century, and is also available in a 6 x 56 format known as Habanero.
Since the beginning, Byron was destined to unite smokers with exquisite taste, and today Byron continues to strive toward delivering a superior cigar that is the epitome of luxury.
Both cigars are the largest Byron vitolas to date, and as a result each blend is tweaked a bit with a higher priming to maintain the strength and flavor required to match the larger ring gauge format.
Each cigar is protected inside a Humitube®, a uniquely effective humidified cigar tube chambered system that lets the cigar receive slow humidification through the wall of the tube that makes for a balanced humidity level throughout the cigar at any length.
The new Byron will retail for $33 per cigar, and are available in three packs with an MSRP of $98.99. The cigar is set to get a full release at IPCPR in New Orleans July 17-21, 2015.
