Excerpts from the Drew Estate press release-July 2015
In 2014 Balmoral introduced their flagship cigar Añejo 18, which was an impressive success globally. The cigar was rated with 93 points by Cigar Journal, collected 5 cigar rings in the French magazine L’Amateur de Cigare (Cigarscope) and claimed a 12th position in the Cigar Journal top 25 of best cigars from the Dominican Republic. It has been a wonderful year for Balmoral and now they introduce Balmoral Añejo XO.
All tobaccos used 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 Añejo XO’s taste as an explosion of aroma’s and complexity, with notes of cedar wood, spices, cacao and an underlying sweetness. The XO rivals the Añejo 18’s taste for complexity and subtlety and even ads a bit of extra sweetness and creaminess.
Balmoral’s partner Drew Estate has again selected a very limited number of premium retailers to introduce the Balmoral Añejo XO and will only be available at Drew Estate Diplomat stores.
