During the Intertabac exhibition, Agio Cigars highlighted the Balmoral Anejo XO and San Pedro de Macoris handmade cigars.
The Balmoral Anejo XO is now available in six sizes. All tobaccos used for Anejo XO have been thoroughly aged and create a sophisticated and complex aroma that is said to be beyond compare. Medium to full bodied, Royal Agio Cigars describes the Anejo XO’s taste as an explosion of aroma’s and complexity, with notes of cedar wood, spices, cacao and an underlying sweetness.
San Pedro de Macoris cigars add a value-priced brand to the company’s line-up of handmade cigars. The new addition, named after the Dominican town that’s home to Agio’s factory has two blends, one called “Ecuador” and the other “Brazil”.
