Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua debuts as the fourth cigar in Royal Agio Cigars' Añejo XO series, where extensively aged tobaccos are sourced from the top 5% of select, premium tobaccos available.
As hinted in the cigar's title, Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua turns the focus toward the rich and fiery characteristics of Nicaraguan tobacco. This is evidenced by the cigar's Nicaraguan Sun-Grown Habano wrapper, which has been draped over an undisclosed binder/filler recipe. However, Balmoral has revealed that the filler contains exclusive Brazilian Mata Norte tobacco, which serves to accentuate flavor notes with an underlying natural sweetness.
Smokers can expect a bold flavor profile upfront, offering an overall medium to medium-plus body, with flavors of rich oak, espresso, hazelnut, and peppery spices—all finishing with a smooth, underlying natural sweetness.
