Press Release – Selected Tobacco Releases Two New Sizes In Byron | Cigar Reviews by the Katman


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.

Available in 3 other sizes:
Petit Poemas (4 x 50), Poemas (4.875 x 52) and Londineses (5.5 x 54)

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.
