Sporting a name longer than the cigar, the Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Rothschild Masivo also featured two bands, with one at the foot. A distinct pipe tobacco flavor released on the cold draw. The first third featured earthy notes and tobacco. Chocolate and cedar took over in the second third and continued for the rest of the smoking experience. Retrohales started with subtle spice and moved to cedar around the midpoint. Above-average construction meant no touch-ups and good airflow. With a price just under $10 and a length of 5 inches, I left wanting more.
