Cigar News: Royal Agio Expands San Pedro de Macorís Line-Up

Royal Agio Expands San Pedro de Macorís Line-Up




February 6th, 2019 (Bradenton, Fla.) – Royal Agio Cigars USA announced today that they will be expanding the San Pedro de Macorís brand line-up with the release of two lines, the Nicaragua and Sun Grown blends.

San Pedro de Macorís handmade cigars are specially crafted to deliver extraordinary quality at an accessible, everyday price.


The lines will be displayed in the Royal Agio booth (Booth #4034) at the upcoming 2019 TPE (Tobacco Products Expo) Tradeshow in Las Vegas, NV.

A follow up to the well-received San Pedro de Macorís brand releases at the 2018 IPCPR tradeshow in Las Vegas (Ecuador and Brazil blends), the Nicaragua and Sun Grown blends bring additional, complex variety to the San Pedro de Macorís value premium brand.


Named after the hard-working town of San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic, the location of Royal Agio’s handmade cigar factory, these boutique handmade cigars inherently represent a vibrant, local culture actively seeking to elevate all aspects of everyday life.


San Pedro de Macorís premium cigars are the result of a pursuit to craft an extraordinary cigar at a reasonable, everyday price.

Each cigar is proudly blended with a high-grade wrapper and binder, and importantly incorporates original Cuban seed Piloto Ligero tobacco filler, to ensure a complex and distinct premium cigar experience.



From the Royal Agio handmade factory in the Dominican Republic, Francisco Batista, Premium Cigar Master Blender, stated,



“Like the blend releases last year, the San Pedro de Macorís Nicaragua and Sun Grown blends continue to directly reflect the local way of life in this small town, delivering extraordinary enjoyment for the money.

Everything here is about creating the best everyday experiences possible, no matter what the occasion, and I proudly speak for the entire factory family when I tell you that these new blends will surprise you!”



The San Pedro de Macorís Nicaragua blend is crowned with a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper and provides a creamy and medium-bodied experience with complex notes of rich cedar, dark chocolate and espresso beans, with subtle nuances of baking spices.





San Pedro de Macorís Sun Grown is finished with a sun-grown Ecuador Habano wrapper and offers a medium-bodied smoke with complex notes of caramel, vanilla beans, black pepper and nutmeg spice.





Each San Pedro de Macorís blend is offered in 20-count boxes in the following three vitolas –

  • Perla:  4 1/8 x 40 (MSRP $4.75)
  • Corona: 5 7/8 x 42 (MSRP $5.00)
  • Robusto: 5 1/8 x 52 (MSRP $5.50)


These blends will ship to U.S. retailers in early April, 2019.
