Royal Agio Cigars announced that they would be releasing the Balmoral Añejo XO Gran Toro, Balmoral Añejo XO Corona and the limited edition Balmoral Añejo XO Lancero FT at the IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas.
While Gran Toro and Corona will be introduced as regular production-cigars, Añejo XO Lancero FT will be a limited release with 1,250 boxes of 10 cigars produced.
We were responsible for all packaging designs, labels and cigar rings. Special attention was given to the XO Lancero FT Limited edition. We created a completely new cigar box, in which 10 Lanceros are displayed in a special way. Furthermore there was lots of room for enrichments like hot foil stamping and embossing, really setting this ‘jewel’ apart.
All cigars use a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper, a Dominican Olor binder, and Nicaraguan, Brazilian and Dominican fillers. When asked about the production of the limited Lancero, Boris Wintermans, CEO of Royal Agio Cigars noted, “We have currently 4 pairs at our factory in San Pedro de Macoris, in the south of the Dominican Republic. Our roleros and buncheros are extremely versatile working within the Balmoral line at our boutique factory, however to fit the amount of leaves into a 7 x 40 Lancero FT presents a unique challenge to our artisans. If you collect Lancero releases, and love Brazilian tobacco as much as we do you will surely enjoy this limited edition.”
