Royal Agio launched Balmoral Cigars in the United Kingdom in a collaboration with Tor Imports a few weeks ago.

Tor Imports

Next to premium cigars they also distribute machine made cigars as Clubmaster, Hofnar, Independence, and King Edward.

Royal Agio

Royal Agio cigars is a Dutch company, still family-owned after more than a century. The Wintermans family, who founded Agio in 1904, are still running the show with Boris Wintermans as CEO nowadays. Where they made a name with their machine-made cigars, the last few years the focus is more on the premium lines. The Balmoral Añejo line has received high ratings from all over the world.

We recently reviewed the Balmoral Añejo XO Gran Toro and the Balmoral Dueto Robusto. The Balmoral Dueto is a collaboration with Ernesto Perez Carrillo and not available on the European markets yet.
