Hans Rijfkogel: Agio Cigars reports on Balmoral Anejo XO success

Royal Agio Cigars reports being successful with Balmoral Anejo XO and cigar aficionados worldwide are excited by the range of exclusive travel retail products. Since Agio Cigars believes Travel Retail & Duty Free is a distribution channel of growing importance for premium cigars, Agio Cigars decided to introduce an eye-catching wooden gift box that features five cigars; 2 Petit Robusto FT, 2 Rothschild Masivo and 1 Gran Toro. Also part of the Travel Retail range are convenient 4-count cigar packs that feature three vitolas. Great if you want to enjoy a specific cigar shape.

The Añejo XO line continues to receive high ratings. Boris Wintermans (CEO of Royal Agio Cigars and 4th generation in the family business): “Cigar Journal recently rewarded the Gran Toro with an exceptional 92 rating. And the Rothschild Masivo was rewarded by Cigars & Spirits with a phenomenal 93 rating! We are very proud of these high scores. The cigars are available in the new exclusive Travel Retail Gift Box and 4-count cigar packs.”

Balmoral wants to surprise cigar lovers with the Anejo XO range. The cigars feature a sun-grown Arapiraca wrapper from Brazil, a Dominican Olor binder, and Nicaraguan, Brazilian and Dominican fillers. In order to marry all flavors, this cigars spend at least six months in an aging room. As a result, the typical flavors of the Anejo XO such as cacao, vanilla and underlying sweetness can be found in all vitolas.

At the factory in San Pedro de Macoris, in the south of the Dominican Republic only a limited number of pairs are certified to work on the Balmoral Anejo XO. The team of ‘roleros’ and ‘boncheros’, headed by Francisco Batista work day in, day out to create the best cigars possible. If you’re a lover of Brazilian tobacco, you’ll definitely enjoy the Balmoral Anejo XO.
