The Ramón Allones Allones No.2 is the third time the brand has been selected to make a Limited Edition for Habanos and is a classic Campana size – 5½” (140mm) x 52 ring gauge. They are housed in Special Presentation Boxes (SPB) of ten cigars.
This is the second of the 2019 Limited Editions to arrive, following the Montecristo Supremos, with the Quai d’Orsay Senadores expected to arrive later in the year.
The cigar may look somewhat familiar, if a little darker in wrapper shade, to some UK Havana smokers and that is because this is the same size and brand decided on by Hunters & Frankau in 2005 for our first ever Habanos Regional Edition, the Ramón Allones Belicoso.
Combine this with the fact that John Hunter, Morris & Elkan Ltd, an antecedent of Hunters & Frankau, owned the Ramon Allones brand for sixteen years, from 1911 to 1927, and it is understandable why H&F is so delighted to be hosting this launch in the UK.
Those fortunate enough to have sampled these cigars, in the UK and Havana, tend to agree that although they smoke well now, they have the potential to develop and mature for many years to come.
The dark wrapper of these Limited Editions adds a satisfying dimension of sweetness as a top taste and the extra age (minimum two years) has smoothed off some of the edges to the blend, leaving a cigar of rare power and balance
