Nelson Alfonso is recognized worldwide for his packaging artistry and his luxury cigar brands Alfonso, Byron, Bandolero, and Atabey. Atabey is produced every year in limited quantities and laid to rest for a minimum of five years post roll. The Limited Edition Atabey Humidor features four compartments; two side drawers, a front drawer, and traditional humidor lid to accommodate the 60 Atabey’s inside from the 2017 vintage.
As the Goddess of the Taino Indians, Atabey is rich in history. It was the Taino Indians who first smoked a primitive form of what is known today as a cigar while praying to their Goddess Atabey. This spiritual ceremony was known as the Cohiba and the tribe communication to Atabey was communicated through their spiritual guide, the Behike.
“I have worked on many international projects throughout my career,” said Nelson Alfonso, Principal of Selected Tobacco. “This Atabey Humidor is the most special to my family as it celebrates the entire line of Atabey.”
