This is the SAME great Cigar, just packaged in the Green Plain Liberal Packaging with the ORIGINAL CIGAR BAND underneath.
Binder: U.S.A./Conn. Broadleaf, U.S.A./Conn. Shade
A huge, fat cigar with a perfect three-seam cap and oily wrapper. Initial cedar notes take on a mineral character and some pine flavor.
The Royale is a medium-to-full-bodied blend rife with flavor and complexity. Cloaked in a gorgeous Sumatra wrapper from Ecuador accompanied by two different binders (shade-grown Connecticut & Connecticut Broadleaf) and fillers from our farms in Nicaragua. This exceptional cigar (in Toro) earned an outstanding 94 rating by Cigar Aficionado, as well as the #5 ranking for the Top 25 Cigars of 2014.
