The Atabey Complete Selection Limited Edition Humidor, first previewed at the 2022 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, will be available at the 2023 PCA Trade Show.
Designed by Nelson Alfonso, the unit contains 60 cigars with five cigars of each of the 12 Atabey vitolas. It features four compartments; two side drawers, a front drawer, and a traditional humidor lid The compartments have sub-compartments labeled with each vitola size. The unit itself features a black gloss finish and gold trim.
Atabey is a flagship brand produced by Selected Tobacco. The brand is derived from the Taino Indians who are said to be the first to smoke a primitive form of what is known today as a cigar while praying to their Goddess Atabey in a spiritual ceremony. This spiritual ceremony was known as the Cohiba and the tribe communicated to Atabey through their spiritual guide, the Behike.
Atabey Cigars are a limited production line. The cigars rolled are aged for a minimum of five years. The 60 Atabey cigars contained in the unit are from a 2017 vintage. Pricing for the Humidor is set at $3,999.00 and it includes the 60 Atabey cigars and the humidor.
A total of 250 humidors have been produced with 60 humidors being released for the 2023 PCA Trade Show. The first humidor will be put on display at Industrial Cigar’s Atabey Lounge this month.
“I have worked on many international projects throughout my career,” said Nelson Alfonso, Principal of Selected Tobacco in a press release. “This Atabey Humidor is the most special to my family as it celebrates the entire line of Atabey.”
Selected Tobacco is distributed by United Cigars in the U.S. market.
