San Pedro de Macoris Gran Toro in The Netherlands. Royal Agio Cigars has extended the San Pedro de Macoris lines with a new size for The Netherlands. Besides the Perla and the Robusto, the company is now distributing a 6×52 Gran Toro as well.

The two available San Pedro de Macoris lines in The Netherlands are the Ecuador and Brazil. In the United States, two more lines are available. Those are the San Pedro de Macoris Nicaragua and Sun Grown


San Pedro de Macoris

San Pedro de Macoris is the hometown of the Royal Agio factory in the Dominican Republic. And as a tribute to the rollers, Royal Agio decided to name a cigar line after that town. And now, there are four lines carrying the name.

The San Pedro de Macoris Brazil is made from Brazilian Mata Fina and Dominican Olor and Piloto Ligero tobacco as filler. The binder is a Dominican Olor. The wrapper is Arapiraca from Brazil, as the name of the line suggests. The San Pedro de Macoris Ecuador utilizes the same filler and binder. The wrapper, however, is a Connecticut Shade from Ecuador. Because of the wrapper, this blend is smoother and milder than the Brazil blend. The Brazil blend has more sweetness and strength. And the cigars are budget friendly. The new San Pedro de Macoris Gran Toro has a price tag of €5,20 in The Netherlands. The Robusto is € 4,50. The Perla comes in at € 3,20.
