Originally a Cuban brand from the mid 19th century, the Lord Byron cigars were created by two cousins who owned a humble cigar factory near Havana. The original Lord Byron cigars were a hit, and the brand enjoyed success for generations, eventually the grandson of one of the cousins, Ricardo Alfonzo, experienced severe financial hardships with the brand and was forced to sell. Roughly ninety years later, Ricardo Alfonzo’s great-grandson, Nelson Alfonso, resurrected the brand through his Selected Tobacco Company. The Byron 21st Century features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Dominican binder and filler tobacco from the Dominican Republic and an undisclosed location. Notes of bread, cedar, pepper and aged tobacco notes.
