Royal Agio Cigars’ Balmoral Añejo XO Oscuro Lancero Flag Tail (FT) Edición Limitada is now available. This is the second limited production Lancero vitola released from Balmoral, which follows previous releases of the original Balmoral Añejo XO Lancero FT Edición Limitada. A total of 2,650 boxes have been produced for global distribution, with only 500 individually-numbered boxes available for the United States. Current Balmoral retailers are being given ordering priority for the special limited production release, which is shipping this month.
The original Balmoral Añejo XO Lancero FT Edición Limitada was the first Lancero vitola released under the Balmoral brand umbrella, and it quickly became a favorite among premium cigar smokers who prefer Lanceros. The second Balmoral Balmoral Añejo XO Oscuro Lancero FT Edición Limitada is a fuller-bodied blend than the original.
The Balmoral Añejo XO Oscuro Lancero FT Edición Limitada (7 x 40) is crowned with a sun-grown, stalk-cut Mexican San Andrés wrapper and blended with a Dominican Olor binder and Nicaraguan, Dominican and exclusive Brazilian Mata Norte filler tobaccos. The blend offers complex notes of dark chocolate, espresso and black pepper that finishes with a smooth, underlying natural sweetness.
According to Boris Wintermans, the 4th Generation CEO of Royal Agio Cigars, “This is a special release for Balmoral that will also certainly excite the senses, and I am personally very excited to share it with cigar lovers everywhere. While the introduction of the Añejo XO Oscuro blend was itself a noteworthy discovery, the length and ring gauge of the Lancero brings with it an intensification that is closer to the core of this exceptional blend.”
