Boris Wintermans of Royal Agio set out to rebuild the company’s premium cigar lines from scratch, guided in part by a deeply rooted spirit of discovery. This “see where it takes us” philosophy transformed the obscure Balmoral brand into a highly acclaimed force in the cigar industry. The Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Gran Toro is one of the top picks in the rebooted Balmoral brand.
At the heart of the Anejo XO Nicaragua Gran Toro is an intricate blend of aged Brazilian, Dominican, and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. A Brazilian Cubra binder and leathery Nicaraguan Habano wrapper complete the tantalizing 6” x 52 cigar, which is handmade in San Pedro de Macoris on the southern coast of the Dominican Republic
The Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Gran Toro is a silky smooth, deeply complex smoke that baths the palate in thick cocoa, coffee, leather, cedar, dried fruit, pepper, sweet earth, and exotic spice notes. The medium-to-full-bodied journey of an hour or longer continues to evolve throughout, delivering a new expression at every turn.
A fantastic pairing partner for either espresso or smoky Islay single malt whisky, the Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Gran Toro is a masterfully blended modern classic. This flavorful smoke is a must for fans of Cuban cigars and other savory puro cigars.
