The Balmoral Collection 12’s Year of the Rat wooden box contains 4 Small Panatelas, 4 Panatelas, 2 Coronas and 2 Corona Tubos cigars.

The Balmoral Private Collection 25’s Year of the Rat wooden box contains 5 Short Coronas, 5 Coronas, 3 Corona Tubos, 5 Panatelas, 5 Small Panatelas and 2 Small Panatela Tubos.

Both editions are available in select duty free markets.

Gertrude Stormink, Global Travel Retail Manager, Agio Cigars, says: “Duty free shoppers enjoy finding unique luxury products and interesting gifts when visiting duty free shops. These eye-catching wooden boxes not only celebrate the Chinese New Year, but also serve as great gifts for cigar smokers.”
