Balmoral is a well known brand for most cigar smokers. The yellow boxes with the image of the holiday residence of the British Queen; Balmoral Castel. This serie is called the Sumatra serie. Balmoral is the only "large" manufacturer which uses Sumatra sand leaf tobacco wrapper for their cigars.

Sumatra is the region which gives the best circumstances for the growth of the cigar wrapper. The offer of this rare tobacco gets lower, because the local farmers switch to other crops for their lands. A lot of other manufacturers use the seed of the Sumatra tobacco, but grown in different regions. This gives a different taste. You can recognize cigars with a wrapper of Sumatra grown tobacco by it's very light pink glow. Balmoral Sumatra cigars are in available in all models.

Besides the Sumatra serie, Balmoral has al serie of cigars which matured for 3 years. Master Blender Willem van Overveld, has used the best Mata Fina tobaccos for these cigars. Because of this ageing process, these cigars have a rich, aromatic taste with a little sweetness. Togehter with some Caribbean tobaccos which are normally used for longfillers, he created this shortfiller. 

Back in 2015, Balmoral existed 12 years. Willem van Overveld searched for nice, extraordinary tobaccos for a special vintage serie which is produced in limited numbers. The wrapper was found on the Bulu Tjina NR 77 plantage on Sumatra, a island which belongs to Indonesia where the best tobaccos grow. The harvestyear was 2010. Tobaccos from the Caribbean were selected for the core of the cigars.

A different serie of Balmoral is the Dominican Selection. Connecticut tobacco is used for the wrapper which has grown in Ecuador and matured for 2 to 3 years. For the inside of these cigars a combination of Dominican Olor, Piloto Cuban and Bahia Brasil is used. Normally these tobaccos are used for longfillers, but Willem van Overveld used them to create a mediumfiller. The result is a wonderfull cigar with a full , creamy taste which reminds you of a Caribbean island. 

Longfillers of Balmoral are handmade with uttermost precision in their own factory in San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic. Each cigar has it's own story and is made by the most skilled people in the tobacco industry. The little hint of sweetness which is present is all longfillers is typical Balmoral.

In the mid nineties Balmoral started to produce longfillers with the introduction of the Royal Selection in 3 variants  with different models. The Claro variants have a filler with tobaccos from Brazil and the Dominican Republic and a Connecticut Ecuador Shade wrapper. This ensures a light/medium body cigar with cedarwood, nuts, flower and cacao taste. The Maduro variants have a filler with tobaccos from Brazil and the Dominican Republic and a Brasil Arapiraca wrapper. This ensures a medium body cigar with cedarwood, coffee and dark chocolate taste. The Reserva variants have a filler with tobaccos from Nicaragua, Brazil and the Dominican Republic and a special Nicaragua Criollo '98 wrapper. This ensures a medium body cigar with leather, dried fruit and light cinnamon taste.

In 2014 Balmoral introduced the Añejo 18 which impressed worldwide. The unique 18 year old Arapiraca wrapper was really rare. To continue the success of Añejo 18 they introduced the Añejo XO serie in 2015. XO stands for eXceptionally Old. The result was a medium/full body cigar with only old tobaccos and a Arapiraca wrapper. To harmonise all the flavours these cigars had a resting period of 6 months, which resulted in a fine and complex taste from cedarwood, spices, cacao and little sweetness.

The suprising complexity and development of the Balmoral Añejo XO Connecticut series are a combination of a aged Ecuador Sumatra binder and a filler which consists of exclusive Brazilian Mata Norte and a American classic: Pennsylvania 41. This Pennsylvania 41 tobacco is cultivated (just like in the 18tj century) by the Amish community in Lancaster County, but more and more difficult to obtain. This tobacco is a real cigar tobacco, gummy, a firm body and dark colour. All these elements make a mild Connecticut cigar with a complex bite, which never gives a dull moment.
"By adding the Añejo XO Connecticut serie, which combines a creamy taste with natural sweetness of complex hints of vanille, roasted caramel and a slight touch of white pepper, eavch moment of the day can be filled with an Añejo XO cigar."

As a sequel to Añejo XO Balmoral launched Añejo XO Oscuro. They only used the top 5% of the best premium tobaccos in the world. The filler is made among other things from the very exclusive Brasil Mata Norte. For the wrapper the used Mexican Stalk-Cut San Andrés Negro which resulted in a taste of espresso, dark chocolate, black pepper and a little sweetness.
