A milestone for any business, but when you celebrate 25 years in the cigar business it must be celebrated in style. Cigarz on the Ave in Winter Park, FL broke ground 25 years ago and never looked back. Situated in the heart of upscale boutiques and European fine-dining, Cigarz on the Ave has dealt luxury in the form of cigars since their doors opened. To celebrate this level of class, United Cigars and Cigarz on the Ave have enlisted the artistry of Nelson Alfonso who is internationally recognized and has received numerous awards for his packaging vision.
Proprietor Don Patel, and his good friend and store manager Sean Armstrong (Doc), had frequent discussions on which of the two United offerings was better. After months of tasting each blend it became a win-win with each getting his own way and the request was made to offer both blends for the company’s milestone anniversary. Patel shared, “We fell in love with these cigars the day we tried them. Alfonso’s work and passion in the cigar industry made our decision for us. We wanted luxury; Atabey and Byron are luxury.”
“These personal humidors are sleek and elegant. We were humbled to be a part of this celebration,” said Oliver Nivaud of United Cigars. Limited to a total of 250 numbered 10 count humidors (125 Atabey and 125 Byron), the two toro sized cigars will have additional aging to them. Styled in a glossy white finish, the numbered Atabey humidors (001-125) will feature 10 Extra Aged Atabeys with a custom second band celebrating Cigarz on the Ave’s 25th Anniversary. Also numbered 001-125, the Cobalt Blue Byron humidors will secure 10 unique cigars from the Byron 21st Century line that have been aged post-roll for more than 6 years and feature a beautiful sun grown Ecuadorian wrapper.
With the expected launch of the humidors to Cigarz on the Ave by October 22nd, pre-orders have already begun. “My clientele demands quality”, Patel said, “and once I mentioned we had a tailor-made humidor coming in from Nelson Alfonso, they ordered them before even seeing them.”
125 numbered humidors of both Atabey and Byron respectively will feature an engraved Cigarz on the Ave logo on the top, numbered plaque on the inside with the appropriate regulator and hygrometer to maintain proper humidity.
