Balmoral Cigars is the premium handmade branch of Royal Agio cigars, one of the world's largest cigar makers. Balmoral focuses on premium and rare cigars, especially in their Añejo portfolio, featuring the Añejo XO, the Añejo XO Oscuro, and the Añejo XO Connecticut.
The Balmoral Añejo XO Connecticut has a Connecticut shade-grown wrapper that covers an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and filler tobaccos from Brazil, the Dominican Republic, and Pennsylvania. These tobaccos blend together to creates a luxurious smoking experience that has notes of vanilla, toasted caramel, and white pepper. Balmoral Añejo XO Connecticut is a complex and creamy smoking experience with a smooth, natural sweetness on the finish; this represents the more mild side of the Balmoral Añejo portfolio, while still capturing the refined nature of the XO and XO Oscuro.
