This cigar was assessed in depth on Cigar Coop.
The Regius of London Claro Especial Exclusivo U.S.A. is the second line by Regius Cigars that will be available exclusively in the American market. Last week it was announced that the Regius Exclusivo U.S.A. red label line would have a national release. Later that week, we were told by owner Akhil Kapacee the details around this second Exclusivo U.S.A. Kapacee told us that the goal of this cigar was to put less emphasis on the wrapper and more emphasis on the binder and filler. To accomplish this, he used a double binder.
There is a reason why Regius Cigars has a chance to be my brand of the year. This company is delivering some excellent cigars. The Claro Especial Pressed Perfecto is no exception. This delivered notes of cream, mixed fruit, natural tobacco, and pepper. The flavors started out medium bodied, but progressed to medium to full in the early stages. By the end of the cigar, the flavors were operating at full-bodied. The strength also increased started out in the medium range before progressing to medium to full in the last third. No signs of Paul Syndrome with this Pressed Perfecto.
Overall a home run by Kapacee and Regius Cigars. Easily a box worthy purchase.
