For this cigar, the craftsmen begin with the finest Nicaraguan broadleaf wrapper. It’s rich, oily, and pure perfection. Next, the Nicaraguan wrapper is meticulously blended with full-bodied and sophisticated Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Honduran tobaccos. Finally, it’s all brought together by the binder, an exquisite Piloto Cubano tobacco that culminates in the most finely-tuned smoking experience Cohiba has ever created.
Hearty and smooth. The Royale is such an impressive cigar that every time I go to pick one up, I make sure I carve out the time to smoke this one slowly.
