Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua Petit Robusto FT

Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua Petit Robusto FT

Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua Petit Robusto FT 1600 900 Michel Arlia

The Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua is the newest line added to the Añejo family, which now consists of four different lines. The Añejo XO Nicaragua got its name thanks to a sun-grown Nicaraguan wrapper.

The line is made in the Dominican Republic and comes in five sizes, and they are all sold in twenty-count boxes. The FT in the Petit Robusto size stands for Flag-Tail.

Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Petit Robusto FT

Balmoral Añejo XO Nicaragua Petit Robusto FT: the cold draw reveals aromas of hay, wood, and spices. Once lit, the cigar opens with ample notes of wood, earth, and leather.

Further into the first half, the wood and leather notes are the primary flavors, followed by walnut and white pepper. There is also a light sweetness perceptible. Strength is slightly over medium-bodied (3.5/5).

The second half sees a coffee note being added to the profile of wood, leather, walnut, and white pepper. Strength increases and becomes medium-full (4/5).

Overall, the Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Petit Robusto FT is a solid smoke with a well outlined and balanced profile. While the evolution is minimal, the profile is broad enough to keep you engaged. Despite the cigar being underfilled in the first couple of inches, there were no burn issues present.
