At the 2022 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Selected Tobacco unveiled a fourth line under its Byron brand known as the Byron 1850.
On Prime Time Episode 234, Selected Tobacco owner Nelson Alfonso described the Byron 1850 as a bolder representation of the Byron blend. While the details of the blend were not completely disclosed, the cigar does use an Ecuadorian wrapper and incorporates more Nicaraguan and Peruvian ligero. Oak is used in the aging room for these cigars.
