IPCPR 2018: Selected Tobacco S.A.

Null

One of the booths that has some of the most gorgeous packaging on display is Selected Tobacco S.A., manufacturer of the more recognizable brands Atabey and Byron.

I was able to get some information on their new releases, however a lot was still in the to-be-determined category.

Atabey Hechizos

The first new cigars is being released under the Atabey brand. There isn’t any production numbers or pricing being released for it, but they will be available at top Atabey retailers. Like the rest of the line, blend details are undisclosed. It will be sold in a 25-count box.

  • Wrapper: n/a

The first of two Byron releases is the Epique Poemas, being released underneath the 19th Century line. It’s a follow up to the other sizes in the 19th Century line – Petit Poemas, Poemas and Grand Poemas. Its blend is also not being disclosed and it will be offered in 25-count boxes.

About the author

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. Besides my cigar hobby and job in the IT industry, my wife and I love traveling, trying new restaurants and relaxing at home with our two dogs.
