Balmoral Paso Doble comes in three sizes: Robusto, Gran Toro and Brindis.

Balmoral Paso Doble, the second cigar created under the collaborative Balmoral Serie Signatura by Europe-based Royal Agio Cigars, is now heading to cigar shops nationwide.

The new smoke was rolled at Litto Gomez’s La Flor Dominicana factory in the Dominican Republic. Gomez seldom makes cigars under contract for others, but for Royal Agio, which distributes La Flor Dominicana cigars in Germany and the Netherlands, he made an exception.

Balmoral Paso Doble actually combines tobaccos from the stocks of both La Flor Dominicana and Royal Agio. It’s made with an Ecuador Habano wrapper, Ecuador Sumatra binder and filler from the Dominican Republic and Brazil.

The new cigar comes in three sizes, each packed in 10-count boxes: Robusto, measuring 5 3/4 inches by 50 ring gauge ($11.25); Gran Toro, 6 1/4 by 54 ($12); and Brindis, a 7 by 55 figurado ($16.50).

Last year, Royal Agio partnered with Ernesto Perez-Carrillo for the Dueto, the first cigar for Balmoral’s collaboration series.
