Alfonso Gran Seleccion Shipped to Retail

The Alfonso Gran Selección from Selected Tobacco, showcased at PCA 2023 in Las Vegas, has shipped to authorized retailers. The Alfonso Gran Selección is the sequel to the highly rated Alfonso Añejo that debuted in 2022. Encased in 25 count decorative, cedar lined boxes, the Alfonso Gran Selección will be available in five sizes; Exclusivos (6 x 54 Torpedo), Preciosos (7 1/2 x 40), Estelares (5 1/2 x 54), Enormes (6 1/2 x 60), and Grandiosos (8 x 50).

Selected Tobacco products are known for their meticulous post-roll aging process, using cedars from all over the world. All of Selected Tobaccos productions are placed into cedar-lined rooms, using five different cedars, while raising and lowering humidity to allow the cigars to cleanse themselves over time. For Alfonso Gran Selección this process takes five years post roll, and their final aging is done in rooms lined with French Oak. The use of French Oak in the aging process was also used for the Alfonso Añejo and Byron 1850 lines.

“Our experimentation with French Oak aging has lead to amazing cigars ” said Nelson Alfonso, Owner of Selected Tobacco. “The Alfonso Gran Selección is the next great example of our dedication to patience and exploration.”

The Alfonso Gran Selección will be available in hand-crafted dark lacquered 25 count dress boxes, limited to 5000 cigars per size.
