Agio introduces Balmoral Aged 3 Years Cigarillo in The Netherlands. The cigars were already available in Corona, Short Corona, and Coronita. But now a cigarillo is added to the line-up.
Balmoral Aged 3 years line
In 2014, Royal Agio Cigars introduced the Balmoral Aged 3 years line. This is a short filler made with premium Caribbean tobaccos. So it is, in fact, a Longfiller in shortfiller shape. The wrapper is a Sun Grown Brazilian tobacco. The cigars are a hit since day one on Agio’s home market. And the retailers and end consumers kept asking for a cigarillo with the Balmoral Aged 3 Years blend. Agio Cigars listened and developed this vitola with the right flavors.
The cigars are blended by Royal Agio’s master blender Willem van Overveld. He’s the second generation Van Overveld when it comes to blending Agio’s shortfiller cigars. He used Dominican and Brazilian tobaccos to create a blend that is suitable for all smokers. Both fans of shortfiller cigars and fans of Longfiller cigars will enjoy the blend.
In a press release, Boris Wintermans, Royal Agio’s CEO said “The Balmoral Aged 3 Years has become our flagship in the shortfiller division. We are introducing the cigarillo for the short smoke breaks. The Balmoral Aged 3 Years is the perfect cross-over between longfillers and short fillers.”
The Balmoral Aged 3 Years cigarillo will come in packages of 10 sticks. The Netherlands has a fixed cigar price. A ten pack of Balmoral Aged 3 years cigarillos is priced at €6,80.
Royal Agio did not mention if the Balmoral Aged 3 years cigarillos would be released anywhere else. The other vitolas are available in other countries worldwide. It is our expectations that those markets will get the cigarillos in the near future too.
