Hudson, NH – Vintage is a term that is at times misunderstood and overused. However when Nelson Alfonso of Selected Tobacco releases blends with 5 years of post-roll age decorated by a uniquely designed humidor, the term is fitting. Byron using a unique distinction for their lines. Each line is named after a century, because Nelson tried to capture the true essence of what a great cigar was, or is, in that century.

The numbered humidors are limited to 300 of each Byron 19th Century Grand Poemas, 20th
Century Habaneros and 21st Century Elegantes. These 3 vitolas are only available once a year in
The Byron line adopted its name in 1850 by honoring the famous British poet Lord Byron. Today the line has become an elegant journey in smoke for any cigar lover.
