Last year Royal Agio introduced the Balmoral Series Signaturas. That’s a series of collaboration with other cigar manufacturers. The 2018 collaboration was the Balmoral Series Signaturas Dueto where they teamed up with Ernesto Perez Carrillo. Those cigars are finally being released in Europe. The 2019 edition is the Balmoral Series Signaturas Paso Doble in a collaboration with La Flor Dominicana. That line is expected to be released worldwide in late 2020. We reviewed the Dueto and the Paso Doble.
