Regius cigars have only been available in the United States since 2012, but they've amassed a following. Born in the U.K., brand owner Akhil Kapacee blended his first Regius cigars for the European palate, which is to say, for enthusiasts who mainly smoke Cuban cigars. But over time, he created new blends, and eventually came up with the Regius Exclusivo U.S.A. series, a trilogy of brands (Red Label, White Label and Blue Label). As the name suggests, Exclusivo U.S.A. is only available stateside. Made in Nicaragua by Plasencia Cigars, the Red Label Pressed Perfecto is a box-pressed figurado full of earthy cocoa notes balanced by a pistachio nuttiness. Both ends of this figurado are closed, so just be sure to cut off the right tip before you light it.
