Royal Danish Cigar Regal Blend Belicoso

Royal Danish Cigars is a brand by a Danish aficionado that celebrates the old connection that Danish royalty has with tobacco and cigars by having his own blends produced in Nicaragua and Costa Rica. I do not know where this particular cigar has been made, I got it in a sampler with a few other Royal Danish cigars, of which I reviewed one before.

The cigar looks beautiful, with the red ribbon and the rhinestone on the band. The wrapper is nice dark brown without any color differences but has one big vein. There is a mild barnyard aroma. The construction feels good but the predraw is somewhat right with a mild raisin flavor.

This cigar has plenty of flavor, wood, pepper and some citrus combined with some spices. The citrus slowly disappears while spices and the peppers grow stronger. After a third the cigar gets a pleasant bitterness, like in a really dark chocolate.

The woody flavors are pushed to the aftertaste and this cigar pairs nice with my sweet ice tea.  Still taste the spices and pepper. After two thirds I taste more spices combined with the bitterness of dark chocolate.

This was a pleasant full flavored medium bodied cigar that lasted me for 75 minutes. The ash is reasonably firm and has the color of salt & pepper. The draw and burn are fine, just like the smoke.

Would I buy this cigar again? No! I liked it but the price that Royal Danish wants for this cigar is crazy.
