There aren’t any new blends out of Selected Tobacco S.A. this year, however there are new sizes in both the Atabey and Byron lines.

With their well lit display cases and the exquisite humidor boxes and jars being shown off, it almost feels as if you’re stepping into a museum instead of a manufacturer’s booth.

Five new sizes are coming to the Atabey line, though the Misticos size will be quite limited,  only 100 boxes will be produced.

  • Wrapper: n/a
  • Binder: n/a
  • Filler: n/a
  • Atabey Dioses (8 x 50) — $34 (Boxes of 25, $850)
  • Atabey Spiritus (7 x 40) — $30 (Boxes of 25, $750)
  • Atabey Benditos (7 x 58) — $36 (Boxes of 25, $900)
  • Atabey Misticos (6 x 56) — $34 (Boxes of 25, $850)
  • Atabey Duendes (6 x 54) — $30 (Boxes of 25, $750)

Launch Date: December 2017

There are two new sizes for this existing line, both coming in the company’s unique humidor-style boxes that include a hygrometer and room for a humidification device.

  • Wrapper: Ecuador

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially, I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010, I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion.
