In today's cigar market "boutique" is king. Maurice Antonius Koks's newest creation Antonius is the very definition of boutique. This up and coming cigar-maker/blender owns and operates a small factory in the Dominican Republic. His focus has been small, carefully controlled production, where quality over quantity is the philosophy. Coming from a Dutch tobacco background, Antonius honors Maurice's grandfather Antonius Toontje Koks, a former boutique cigar manufacturer in Holland.

Antonius is a medium to full-bodied cigar handcrafted using oily Cuban-seed Ecuadorian wrappers and a peppery blend of aged Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers.
The flavors are rich and complex with notes of spice and hints of earth and leather, followed by hints of sweetness. Available in three sizes, these cigars come packaged in cedar boxes of 20. If you are a full-bodied smoker Antonius is very affordable cigar that will provide you with wonderful enjoyment.
