Back in April of 2015 we had the pleasure of meeting Jan von Vistisen the man behind Royal Danish Cigars out of Denmark at Xavier’s Cigar Lounge in Hallandale Beach FL. Jan was kind enough to present me with a sample of his line and we returned the favor by doing a review on it. As we spoke that evening he noted he was working on getting the Royal Danish line into the US.
Well since then, I had the pleasure of visiting Sweden and enjoyed more of his blends at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco in Gothenburg and have been waiting patiently for them to arrive here in the states.
The other day on Jan’s Facebook page he announced the arrival of Royal Danish in the US and I promptly contacted him to discuss the achievement.
In our conversation Jan noted;
It took a year to seal the contract with Cigar International and related companies and they are now in process of rolling out the brand.
While some blends will be only for Cigars International like the Double Ligero most of the line is on cigar.com.
The importer MeierDutch.com is now preparing the next catalog that will include Royal Danish Cigars and it’s going out to 6000 tobacco retailers in the USA in April.
So keep an eye out for these delightful cigars and ask your local retailer about them. If you are a retailer you may want to consider adding this line to your inventory.
Congratulations to Jan and the Royal Danish family. I will certainly be looking forward to adding them to my personal stash.
