Royal Agio Re-Releases Limited Edition Balmoral Añejo XO Lancero FT
Royal Agio Cigars USA announced today that they are re-releasing the Balmoral Añejo XO Lancero FT Edición Limitada. Shipments to retailers begin mid-November.
Originally released during the 2016 IPCPR, the Balmoral Añejo XO Lancero Flag Tail (FT) Edición Limitada became a fast favorite among premium cigar smokers. Based on the positive response to the original release a little over 2 years ago, the Lancero FT will be available once again in limited quantities, with a total of only 500 individually numbered 10-count boxes being produced. This time around, however, availability will be limited to the U.S., with distribution priority given to existing Balmoral retailers.
The Balmoral Añejo XO Lancero FT (7 x 40; MSRP $12.95) is crowned with a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper, and blended with a Dominican Olor binder and Nicaraguan, Dominican and exclusive Brazilian Mata Norte fillers that will embrace your palate with complex notes of cedar, cacao and peppery spices that finish with a smooth, underlying natural sweetness.
When asked about this limited production cigar, Boris Wintermans, 4th Generation CEO for Royal Agio Cigars stated, “We are very excited for this re-release based on the previous success of this sought-after vitola and because the size and shape of this cigar provides a unique way to experience the sophisticated and complex Balmoral Añejo XO blend. I personally invite curious cigar lovers to discover, or rediscover, the limited edition Lancero FT.”
The Balmoral Anejo XO Lancero FT, like the rest of the Balmoral Anejo XO portfolio, is handcrafted at the boutique, Royal Agio cigar factory in San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic.
Balmoral Añejo XO blends are also offered in the following regular production vitolas – Torpedo Mk52 6 1/4 x 52 (MSRP $11.25), Gran Toro 6 x 52 (MSRP $10.50), Rothschild Masivo 5 x 55 (MSRP $9.75), Corona 5 7/8 x 42 (MSRP $9.00) and Petit Robusto FT 4 1/4 x 48 (MSRP $8.50).
BLK WKS Killer Bee Connecticut
Black Works Studio (BLK WKS) is pleased to announce the release of Killer Bee Connecticut: hand crafted in Esteli, Nicaragua at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
KB Connecticut will be available at select BLK WKS retailers for a limited time. This is a small batch release that was offered to retailers who attended IPCPR 2018.
“The Killer Bee Connecticut is a cigar that I blended with the original Killer Bee, so I’m very excited to finally have it released as an addition to the Killer Bee line and the BLK WKS portfolio,” said James Brown, creator of BLK WKS. “With similar profiles to the Killer Bee, it may not be what you expect from a typical Connecticut cigar. The Connecticut wrapper gives an added creaminess and changes up the spice components quite a bit.”
KB Connecticut will be shipping in limited quantities this week.
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Connecticut and Ecuador Maduro swirl cap and closed foot
Binder: Nicaraguan Habano
Petite Corona – 4 1/2 x 46 (20-count) MSRP: $10.00
