Alfonso Extra Anejo Cigars (Selected Tobacco) by Nelson Alfonso
The Alfonso Extra Anejo #1 Cigars are a premium cigar brand released by Selected Tobacco, which was founded by Nelson Alfonso. Prior to starting his own cigar company, Alfonso was a graphic designer in Cuba who is recognized for developing the Cuban Behike brand. The Alfonso Añejos joins Selected Tobacco’s luxury lines: Atabey, Byron and Bandolero. Selected Tobacco was started by Nelson Alfonso to offer the market a cigar that is aged with a purpose. All the Selected Tobacco lines are placed into cedar lined rooms after they are rolled, then humidity is raised and lowered to allow the cigars to clean themselves with the cedar notes from two to five years. They come out of Costa Rica and feature an Ecuadorian binder, a mix of Nicaraguan and Peruvian fillers, and an Ecuadorian wrapper.
