Royal Agio Cigars U.S.A. will expand its Balmoral Añejo XO lineup with the release of Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua. The new release will be displayed in the Royal Agio booth (Booth #3638) at the 2019 IPCPR Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, from June 29 to July 2.
Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua extends the lineup for Balmoral Añejo XO line that currently includes Añejo XO, with a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper; Añejo XO Connecticut and Añejo XO Oscuro with a Mexican San Andrés wrapper. The Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua blend uses a sun-grown Nicaraguan Habano wrapper and provides a luxuriously bold experience with complex notes of rich oak, espresso, hazelnut and peppery spices that finish with a smooth, underlying natural sweetness.
Like the other offerings in the Balmoral Añejo line, Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua consistently delivers the optimal balance of sophisticated complexity and smoothness. The meticulously crafted, extensively aged cigar blend is the result of a relentless curiosity and global search for the top 5 percent of select premium tobaccos available, including the exclusive, signature Brazilian Mata Norte tobacco, that accentuates flavor notes with an underlying natural sweetness.
“The new Añejo XO Nicaragua is a special blend that has been in development for quite some time because, as usual, we wanted to ensure that we had the perfect combination of unique and exclusive, aged premium tobaccos that would make this Nicaragua blend truly stand out,” says Boris Wintermans, the fourth generation of his family to serve as CEO of Royal Agio Cigars, in a press release announcing Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua’s introduction. “Our curious approach to blending has once again led us to an exceptional, one-of-a-kind discovery sure to delight cigar lovers everywhere.”
Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua will be handcrafted at Royal Agio’s boutique cigar factory in San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic. It will be available the same five sizes as all other Balmoral Añejo XO blends: Torpedo Mk52 (6 1/4 x 52), Gran Toro (6 x 52), Rothschild Masivo (5 x 55), Corona (5 7/8 x 42) and Petit Robusto FT (Flagtail) (4 1/4 x 48). The new Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua will begin shipping to retailers in the United States in August 2019.
