April 28th, 2015 – Founded in 1850, the brand Bryron is without a doubt one of the oldest brands in the world. Selected Tobacco is pleased to announce 2 new sizes and updated packaging.
The Serie Siglo XIX which is carefully blended by Nelson Alfonso to best represent 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 represents Cuban Cigars of the 20th Century is also available in a 6 x 56, knowns as Habaneros. Since the beginning Byron was destined to unite smokers with exquisite taste and today Byron continues to deliver a superior cigar that is the epitome of luxury.
Both cigars are the largest Byrons to date and as a result each blend is tweaked a bit with a higher priming to maintain the strength and flavor despite the larger ring gauge format.
Each cigar is protected inside a Humitube®, a unique real and effective humidifier cigar tube chamber system that lets the cigar receive a slow humidity through the wall of the tube that makes a balanced humidified cigar at all its lengths.
The Byron has a retail of $33 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.
