In 2014 Balmoral introduced their flagship cigar Añejo 18, which was an impressive success globally. It has been a wonderful year for Balmoral. The rare 18-year old Arapiraca wrapper is very limited and to continue the success of Añejo, which in fact is based on aged tobaccos, Balmoral now introduces its successor Balmoral Añejo XO.
DUIZEL, Netherlands – Royal Agio announced today that they would be releasing the Balmoral Añejo XO Gran Toro, Balmoral Añejo XO Corona and the limited edition Balmoral Añejo XO Lancero FT. The cigars will be displayed in Drew Estate’s booth (Booth #2403) at the IPCPR Convention and Tradeshow held July 24 – 28, 2016 in Las Vegas Nevada.

"I really enjoyed this compact cigar. It had a great construction and build and felt really smooth. The profile was complex and had a nice balance of cedar, hay, and pepper. Not too spicy or bold, just a real smooth rich profile. My only negative is that this cigar didn't last longer. " -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

"Really nice cigar on the milder side. A bit of complexity, red pepper spice and sweet cream makes it really enjoyable. " -David F. (dfafjf)
