For the second straight year, Boris Wintermans, fourth-generation CEO for Royal Agio Cigars, has collaborated with one of the cigar industry's most respected manufacturers on a unique and limited cigar offering.
The project is dubbed Balmoral Serie Signaturas Paso Doble, combining the talents of Royal Agio and famed cigar artisan Litto Gomez, of La Flor Dominicana fame. The cigar follows in the footsteps of the the first cigar in the Serie Signaturas collection, where Boris Wintermans partnered with Ernesto Perez-Carrillo on the Balmoral Serie Signaturas Dueto.
Paso Doble is a true collaboration, utilizing tobaccos from Royal Agio's extensive vaults, as well as Litto Gomez's highly awarded Dominican leaves. This includes an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and fillers of Brazil and the DR. In addition, Paso Doble has been handcrafted at Gomez's boutique-minded Tabacalera La Flor factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic. This highly anticipated project smokes as good as it looks, offering a medium-plus body and balanced complexities of toasted oak, nutmeg, blackened steak, clove, and heavy molasses.
