Box of Partagás Selección Privada

It's interesting to note that the wrappers aren't as dark as what you'd expect of an Edicion Limitada. Both the Bolívar Super Coronas and Cohiba Robustos Supremos, the other 2014 Limited Editions, have notably darker wrappers than the Selección Privada.

Regular Production

Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo de San Juan

Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo de San Juan.

As of 2014, the Le Hoyo de San Juan will be biggest ring gauged Hoyo de Monterrey in current production. What's interesting about this release however, is that the Cigar would be part of the Le Hoyo series, that is dominated by thinner ring gauged Cigars.

The San Juan will follow the trend of recent years of large bands with the name of the Cigar embossed underneath the logo. Examples of this band styling include the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure de Luxe and H. Upmann Connoisseur A.

The San Juan is available in slide lid cabinets of both 10 & 25 cigars.

Partagás Serie D No. 6

Partagás Serie D No. 6

The Partagás Serie D No. 6 is the newest addition to the recent trend from Habanos of introducing small, stubby Cigars. Hopefully the Serie D No. 6 will build on the success of the H. Upmann Half Corona. Released in 2011, the H. Upmann Half Corona proved a hit with aficionados as it delivered in flavour regardless of it's size.

Surly's first tasting of the Petit Quintero

Friends of Habanos member Surly posted his thoughts on the Quintero Petit Quintero that he recently smoked (22nd July 2014):

Just picked a couple of these up today from the local cigar shop. Pretty cheap - about $7.00 Canadian. I was expecting a smaller version of a Quintero Favoritos, but it was quite different. The Petit Quintero had a light, smooth wrapper with some oily marks. Not dark and rough looking like a Favorito. The first third was spicy/acrid. It evened out into a grassy flavour, but that's about it. No big flavours and none of the grubby 'twang' I like in a Favorito. Good burn and construction though. It's probably too green to give it a fair review. I'll save the other one and see if some age improves it.

Trinidad Vigia

Trinidad Vigia.

The final Habanos S.A. release of 2014, the Trinidad Vigia found it's way to the Canadian La Casa Del Habanos in the 3rd week of December starting the 15th.

Of all the 2014 releases, I find the Trinidad Vigia one of the most interesting. Mainly because only a few years ago the Trinidad line was dealt a blow with both the Robusto Extra and Robusto T being discontinued. There were also at the time of the discontinuations rumours that the whole Trinidad brand were to be axed. With the introduction of the Vigia, does this indicate that there is still hope for a Trinidad resurgance and Habanos S.A. takes this premium brand seriously?

Switzerland - Ramon Allónes Perfectos - Swiss flag Swiss Regional Edition

Information

Released in the second week of November 2014, the Ramon Allónes Perfectos utilises the same white band design as 2011 Limited Edition, the Ramon Allónes Allones Extra. The cigar is reminicent of the United Kingdom Regional Edition, the Bolívar Británicas (although does not quite share the same size)

The Ramon Allónes Perfectos is an attempt in resurrecting the style that is the 'Cigars of old'. The perfectos shape, along with the retro Ramon Allónes band tries to highlight that fact.

Word is that there will be a strictly limited release of one hundred humidors, each one containing ten Perfectos.

Announced during the week of the 2014 Habanos Festival, the Por Larrañaga Sobresalientes will be the largest ring gauged Regional Edition made specific for the British market. An interesting vitola in the fact that it has an odd numbered fifty three ring gauge that is difficult to pronounce.
