Regius Cigars is a company based in the United Kingdom. A little over two years ago, the company expanded its distribution into the United States. The Regius of London (sometimes referred to as the Regius Black Label) was among one of Regius’ first cigars to come stateside. The company entered into a distribution agreement with S.A.G. Imports (now Quesada Cigars) and slowly began moving its product into select retailers.

This cigar brings together the worlds of smoothness and spice together – which I know sounds strange. It has wonderful notes of cocoa, earth, and nut – and at the same time it has a wonderful pepper flavor that I describe as “black pepper plus”. The cigar is well balanced in terms of strength and body – starting out medium and by the last third progressing to medium to full.

The construction is so good that Paul’s midas touch couldn’t affect this.

This is a potential belle of the ball candidate in the line – and one to fight Chuck Norris for.
