Byron Limited Edition Humidor Set Scheduled

February 7, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



Vintage is a term that is at times misunderstood and overused. However when Nelson Alfonso of Selected Tobacco releases blends with five years of post-roll age decorated by a uniquely designed humidor, the term is fitting. Byron using a unique distinction for their lines. Each line is named after a century, because Nelson tried to capture the true essence of what a great cigar was, or is, in that century. This year’s edition of Byron Humidors are limited to one size in each blend, with only 7,500 cigars rolled for each “century”; the Byron cigar line has a “century” interpretation for any cigar enthusiast.

The numbered humidors are limited to 300 of each Byron 19th Century Grand Poemas, 20th Century Habaneros and 21st Century Elegantes. These three vitolas are only available once a year in numbered humidors.

The Byron line adopted its name in 1850 by honoring the famous British poet Lord Byron. Today the line has become an elegant journey in smoke for any cigar lover. Nelson Alfonso is recognized worldwide for his packaging artistry. His creative eye never blinks when it comes to creating beauty for his own lines of Atabey, Byron and Bandolero. This year’s Byron Humidors are lacquered African Oak lined humidors with embossed hinges, temperature gauge, hygrometer, and push button closure.
