Information last updated on Monday, 12th June 2017.

Ramon Allónes is one of the oldest Cuban brands in current production. Registered in 1845 by the brothers Antonio and Ramon Allónes. The brand is accreddited with introducing colour lithographs for box art, the bands that adorn Cigars, and the 8-9-8 packaging style.

Ramon Allónes is known for it's deep stewed fruit flavours, that I find to be unique within the brand. Both the Specially Selected and Small Club Coronas are highly regarded within the Cigar community.

Limited Edition

Ramon Allónes Allones Extra

The first time that a Limited Edition Cigar has been ordained by the Ramon Allones brand, the Allones Extras was released in 2011 and immediately became a big hit amongst Cigar aficionado's who were impressed by it's flavour profile and ageing potential.

A recreation of an old vitola within the Ramon Allones brand that was discontinued long ago in the 1960's, the Allones Extra has been faithfully recreated, right down to the band. The band that the Allones Extras sports is in fact an old style that ordained all Ramon Allones Cigars before the revolution until around 1972 where it was replaced with a band very similar to what we have today. Although two toned white and ivy, the band is quite striking and in fact unique against other Limited Editions.

The flavour profile of the Allones Extra is typical Ramon Allones, in a supercharged form. Medium to full in flavour, there’s plenty of fruit cake like flavours, with a hit of espresso. In terms of ageing, the Allones Extras will no-doubt slowly start to calm in flavour profile, into a smooth, complex smoke, if you can manage to lay the Cigar down.

Ramon Allónes Eshmoun 30 - Lebanon flag Lebanon Regional Edition

The Ramon Allones Eshmoun 30 is the largest of all 2012 Regional Editions, measuring in at 164mm and 54 ring gauge.

Like many previous regional editions intended for the middle eastern markets, the Eshmoun 30 continues the tradition of large, hefty Cigars. This bucks the trends of regional editions for other countries, particularly European markets, where the Regional Edition Releases are usually smaller in size.

The Eshmoun 30 started to appear on the market around April 2013.

An interesting side note, there have been 6000 boxes produced of the Ramon Allones Eshmoun 30, with each containing twenty five cigars. That's a lot of Sublimes. Will be interesting if the Eshmoun 30 sell out very quickly or will be around for a few years.

2015 Habanos Festival

During the 2015 Habanos Festival, that was held in February of that year, a few lucky people were able to smoke a sample of the Hunters & Frankau Aniversario 225. Pictures have been posted via social media sites as Instagram and Twitter, with the general consensus that the cigar is going to live up to hype.

Long term aficionado and cigar forum contributor Ryan posted an image of the Ramon Allónes Hunters & Frankau Aniversario 225 that he received whilst at the Habanos Festival in Cuba:

Ramon Allones Hunters and Frankau Aniversario 225 - 2015 Great Britain Regional Edition

Ryan's verdict on the cigar: they're very nice. His tasting notes:

A very nice wrapper, colorado, smooth with no veins and a silky feel rare in modern Habanos cigars. Nice volatiles of sweet spice in the pre-light aroma. On cutting, about halfway down the shoulder, the draw is perfect. The cigar feels good in the hand with a nice weight for its size. Not underfilled. 1st third. Main impressions are of sweet caramel with a spice on the nose. Not the ammonia spice of a young cigar. Christmas spices. From the rounded finish and lack of harshness I would guess that this was not a freshly rolled cigar. The flavour progresses into something like creamy, toasted marshmallow. Very nice. 2nd third Less sweet now, spice on the nose with caramel back again, this time with more depth, a longer finish. Last third Quite strong now and the spiciness increases. Not harsh but strong. Overall Impression This is a very good cigar. Good to smoke now but has the strength, sweetness and finish already to age very well. This combination of sweetness and spice can age extraordinarily well. This could be a great cigar in 2-5 years. Patience could be rewarded, the longer you can wait.
