My view on the Ramon Allónes Specially Selected

One of my favourite Robustos, the Specially Selected has so many things going for it. Firstly, the Cigar oozes all the dark , stewed fruit, tobacco notes for what the Ramon Allónes brand is all about. Secondly, the Specially Selected is very reasonably priced compared to other Robustos and Hermosos No. 4 sized cigars. For the price, the cigar punches above it's weight. Third and finally, there is plenty of scope for ageing. After three to five years, the rough edges drift to the wayside, with the dark stewed fruit notes settling down into a more softer, creamier composition.
