Quai D’Orsay about to unveil a Belicoso Royal regional edition to celebrate its 40th anniversary

Quai D’Orsay started in 1974, when the Minister of Finance at that time wanted to create a cigar with the French refinement and lifestyle.

A Protected Denomination of Origin.[/tippy] the brand was designed according to the true Habano tradition, thanks to the good terms between France and the Cuban state monopoly.

Quai D’Orsay based its signature on its very distinctive Blend –Ligada – smooth and subtle, developing pastry notes.

Four decades ago, the new brand was launched and named Quai D’Orsay after the Parisian wharf along the river Seine, where the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the SEITA happened to be located.

Habanos s.a. has developed in collaboration with SEITA on this special 40th Anniversary occasion this Belicoso Royal Regional Edition.

Factory name Petit Pirámides
measures Ring Gauge 52 (20,64 mm) x 125 mm (5″) in length
Presentation 2000 numbered boxes, with 25 Habanos each.

Regional editions are unique productions dedicated to one brand and one nation, where aficionados are offered a single production for its territory.

This Belicoso Royal is produced in numbered boxes and is available only in the country they were designed for. In this case each Belicoso Royal cigar shows a second band with “Exclusivo Francia” -made exclusively for France- legend.
