A new Nicaraguan, aged to perfection.
Balmoral is a name you might not be too familiar with (yet), but the world certainly knows about their parent company Royal Agio. Agio has been making cigars in Europe since 1904 in their factories located in Sri Lanka, the Dominican Republic, Belgium, and the Netherlands, but only recently have premium, long-filler cigars come out of the Dominican factory bearing the name Balmoral. So far every one of their releases has been right on the money, and no holds were barred in the production of their first cigar ever to wear a Nicaraguan wrapper.
Underneath the rich Nicaraguan Habano wrapper lies a Cuban-seed Brazilian binder and one of the most unique filler blends we’ve ever seen. The finest, aged Dominican Olor and Nicaraguan Esteli leaves are mixed with Balmoral’s stalk-cut Brazilian Mata Norte, the special leaf responsible for most of the amazing flavors you get from Agio’s premium brand. It took Royal Agio quite some time to perfect this medium-full bodied blend, but when the rich earth and espresso flavors hit your palate, their refusal to compromise becomes immediately evident. Grab a box of Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua, and taste the top 5% of tobacco quality.
