Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Massivo (Gran Robusto)

Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua, Balmoral Cigars, Dominican Republic, Gran Robusto, Massivo, Nicaragua Habano Today I got to enjoy one of my best finds of the relaunch of my Cigar Hobby in the Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Massivo (Gran Robusto) that I smoked in an undisclosed parking lot…

Through a very open draw that produced volumes of smoke, I had nothing but smiles for this smoking experience.

It is too bad that Balmoral is on its way out at least to the U.S. market and will no longer be available… so I purchased a few boxes of Balmoral Cigars that included this Anejo XO Nicaragua

Stay Smoky
Stay Chill


The Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Massivo (Gran Robusto) is a beautifully constructed and gorgeous looking cigar

Once lit, volumes of smoke come through a perfect draw from this firmly packed cigar. Earthy tobacco flavors come forward with something sweet that I can’t quite put my finger on… and, the retrohale has a respectable bit of spice.

Today, the flavors from this Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua are complex for the first time with this Vitola… meaning I just want to sit back and sip on this luxurious tobacco and I may just do that as some company just arrived at my table; so I’ll have to wander through the conversations that mean I’ll have to revisit this cigar again soon.

I have another one in the TupperDor that I will definitely stay focused on…

In the meantime,
Stay Smoky
Stay Chill
