The XO line by Balmoral was created to give greater luster to products that, until a decade ago, were classified as mass-market cigars. In recent years, given the enormous success, the Connecticut version was also born, which does not only offer another wrapper variant but a completely different blend. For this line, Brazilian, Dominican, and Pennsylvania tobacco are used for the filler, a Sumatra binder grown in Ecuador, and a Connecticut wrapper. All Balmoral Anejo XO Connecticut cigars, offered in five sizes, are sold to the public in boxes of 20 pieces.
The Balmoral Anejo XO Connecticut Petit Robusto FT is presented dressed in a Claro-colored wrapper leaf. The filling is uniform, and the construction is flawless.

Balmoral Anejo XO Connecticut Petit Robusto FT: the cold draw reveals herbal aromas, while once lit, the cigar releases fresh wood notes.
Overall, the Balmoral Anejo XO Connecticut Petit Robusto FT releases a particularly balanced and structured smoke. Despite the small size that aims to satisfy in a short period of time, the cigar is quite complex, making this short smoke anything but boring.
