Ring Gauge: 42
Packaging: Single cigar

The Latin Regius denotes of a ‘King’. We present you a regal smoking experience: to enjoy a hand-made King of Cigars.

Gaius Petronius Arbiter (AD27) was a Roman writer and courtier for Emperor Nero who devoted himself to a life of pleasure. Yet far from being an ordinary, vulgar profligate, he became known as an accomplished voluptuary.

Showing capacity for outrageous indulgence, he was looked upon by Nero to be the absolute authority on questions of taste (arbiter elegantiae), especially with the science of alchemy.

In his memory the superb brand of cigars ‘Regius’ was created. The alchemy of cultivating and blending the finest aged tobacco to achieve the best possible taste, an even burning quality and elegant aromas.

We invite you to be arbiter elegantiae, the judge of elegance, of the beautifully hand crafted and flavoursome creations that are Regius Cigars.

Tasting Notes

This cigar has a light medium body. A charming accompaniment to the taste of coffee, it has a sweet aroma and creamy texture.

Delighted to report that I had a post prandial Regius coronas, after my earlier poor experience of one I bought of three earlier today, and how different it was. I lit it with a little 'blow torch' lighter and it responded in splendid fashion. The cigar lasted for just under an hour of constant smoking, going out only once towards the end. It relit without any difficulty or detriment to its continued pleasure, down to the last inch. As I am not a connoisseur I would not venture taste descriptions but I can say that it was consistent throughout, pleasurably mild and flavoursome, even in both draw and burning. I am so pleased to be able to contradict the previous review and can confirm that, for a £6 cigar it was a snip. I have been looking for a good lunchtime or coffee break stick and this would fill those boots suitably.

I had one of the Regius robustas last evening, which ended far too soon after a most satisfying and enjoyable 30 minutes. I was so impressed I returned to Turmeaus in Liverpool this morning and purchased three of the Regius coronas, in eager anticipation of perhaps a quicker (being a little slimmer) burn, but equal pleasure. I am sorry to say that the first one has been a disaster, cigar wise. Having lit it in patient manner with a wooden taper, adding to the anticipated pleasure of the impending smoke, the cigar never really drew a good mouthful from the outset. Within minutes it had 'tunnelled' and burnt out one side. I gave up less than a third into it, and watched it extinguish itself almost immediately. I am now in some trepidation of trying either of the remaining two. There was no real taste other than a bitter, harsh and flavourless haze. I cut the spent section only to discover that it had burned a tunnel straight through to the smoking end. Little wonder it was hot and very unpleasant. I am sure that these things happen from time to time, and no fault of the helpful staff in this excellent repository. Just a bad one perhaps. To compare these Regius coronas I also bought identical length and girth coronas by Oliva and Makanudo, having higher expectations. I hope I am proven wrong by the remaining Regius' and if so, will happily report back with an adjusted opinion more akin to my first impression.

A really lovely affordable cigar. Well constructed, good even burn, great flavours...a real pleasure to smoke. Medium in strength, lovely aromas. Woody,spicy,leathery...all the things you look for in a good cigar. Well done to the manufacturers on creating this wonderful cigar.

Absolutely lovely creamy/ chocolaty flavour for the first third then progressing into a more vanilla like taste giving off a dark chocolate aroma whilst touching on a woody flavour every now and then. I was more and more impressed with this little beauty towards the end. The start of the final third was a very enjoyable one providing me with a whirlwind of creaminess and sweetness overtime I took a puff and licked my lips. As always, absolute perfect service from the Cgars team.
