Nelson Alfonso's fascination with Atabey cigars centered around the impact of doubling the aging period from 5 to 10 years. In a parallel to Scotch whisky, this transformation can be likened to the difference between Macallan 12-year and Macallan 18-year. The extra six years introduce unique shifts in flavor and complexity, with the latter commanding a notably higher price. Much like Macallan 12 priced at $80 and Macallan 18 at $400, the prolonged aging of Atabey cigars introduces a whole new layer to their character and intrinsic value. Explore the enriched essence of Atabey cigars through this extended aging journey.
