2024 Release of Atabey Black Ritos Ships

Hudson, NH – Selected Tobacco, led by Nelson Alfonso, announces the shipment of the 2019 vintage Atabey Black Ritos to United Cigar Branded lounges and NFT Box holders. Marking a pioneering step in the cigar industry, the Atabey Black Ritos became the world’s first cigar NFT when it was released in 2021. Enthusiasts had the opportunity to purchase NFT boxes at a set price of $1,200, with the intent of contributing to charitable causes rather than holding an auction. This innovative approach allowed an additional five US-based retailers to secure an allocation of this limited production.

After undergoing a meticulous five-year aging process in Selected Tobacco’s specialized rooms, the 2024 release is now en route to a select group of ten retailers nationwide.

Blend Profile and Presentation:
The Atabey Black Ritos offers a medium-bodied smoking experience, featuring a rich, dark Ecuadorian wrapper encasing a blend of Dominican and Peruvian tobaccos. Available in a single vitola of 6 1/8 x 55, the cigars are packaged in sophisticated black lacquered boxes of 25, epitomizing luxury and attention to detail. The unique aging process involves rooms lined with five types of cedar and French Oak, adding unparalleled depth and complexity to the cigars. Priced at an MSRP of $50 per cigar, the Atabey Black Ritos are available exclusively to a discerning clientele that supports the vision of United Cigars and Selected Tobacco, and those adventurous enough to delve into the realm of cigar NFTs.
