Ramon Allones 8-9-8 to be 2014 German Regional Edition
Over the weekend there has been word that the Germany Regional Edition for 2014 will be the Ramon Allones 8-9-8. I've been told that 5th Avenue have decided on the 8-9-8 from two sources. The Ramon Allones 8-9-8 was originally discontinued in 2002, leaving the Partagás 8-9-8 as the only regular production Cigar to be presented in the three layers of eight, nine and eight.
The Ramon Allones 8-9-8 was originally a Lonsdale sized Cigar. I would assume that 5th Avenue, the German Distributor for Cuban Cigars will stay true to the original 8-9-8 and release the Cigar in varnished boxes of twenty five.
Germany has seen the re-introduction of a discontinued Cigar before. German Cigar Merchant Christoph Wolters commissioned a limited edition run of the Bolivar Gold Medal back in 2004, that became a La Casa del Habanos release in 2007.
