United Cigar Group made an announcement that they are extending two of their most popular ultra-premium cigar blends. Receiving these extensions are the Atabey and Byron brands, both made in Costa Rica and featuring upscale blends of high-end tobacco designed to appeal to smokers who enjoy and appreciate the finest tobaccos. The brands represent the most exclusive offerings in the extensive United Cigar Group portfolio and this announcement is expected to cause significant excitement among fans of both brands.

The Atabey line currently features four sizes, and that quantity will more than double with this introduction of five new shapes. The new shapes are Duendes (Torpedo 6 x 54), Spiritus (7 1/2 x 40), Misticos (6 3/4 x 56), Dioses (8 x 50) & Benditos (7 1⁄4 x 58). The new sizes will be on display at the 2017 IPCPR Show and will be ready to ship in 2018 after five years of carefully planned aging is complete.

This is a complicated time in the cigar industry to introduce a line extension but we are overly excited to showcase these Atabey vitolas that will be ready for the shelves soon. Retailers and cigar enthusiasts have been overly receptive and we are completely humbled by their support.Oliver Nivaud, Director of Sales at United Cigars

The extensions to the Byron brand are based around new packaging that places these exclusive cigars in packaging that lives up to their reputation. Nelson Alfonso of Selected Tobacco has artfully packed the Byron 19th Century Grand Poemas (6 x 56) and Byron 20th Century Habaneros (6 x 56) in beautiful 25 count Limited Edition Humidors. Each humidor is filled with cigars that have been aging since 2012, and only 200 humidors filled with each vitola will be produced this year. The cigars represent a unique smoking experience for true cigar enthusiasts and the humidors are expected to become sought-after collector’s items among the brand’s followers due to their limited production. Along with the Byron 21st Century Elegantes (6 1/8 x 55), the Byron Grand Poemas and Habaneros will be available at the 2017 IPCPR Show in Las Vegas, NV.
