Juan Lopez is a discreet Cuban cigar brand which was much more famous in the 1970s. It was created in 1876 by Juan Lopez Diaz and was first called La Flor de Juan Lopez. The two vitolas widely known, Seleccion No. 1 and Seleccion No. 2 were created in 1990s and they are having considerable success these days, judging by some of the reviews. I recently found a 1-year old picture and tasting notes of a Seleccion No. 2 that I didn't publish back then (they got lost on my computer) and after Jason's review of the Seleccion No. 1 I decided to revisit this cigar.

Thanks to a friend, I managed to get my hands on those beautiful regional editions for France. Juan Lopez Obus was released in 2007 and the Ramon Allones Especial a year later, in 2008. I decided to do a comparative review of these rare smokes because I clearly found that one is superior to the other.

I had read some great reviews on the Juan Lopez brand lately and have anxiously anticipated trying one. Its counterpart the JL Seleccion No. 2 robusto was named one of Cigar Aficionados Top 25 Cigars of the Year. This cigar had a month and a half of humidor time on it, but I do not know the exact box code. I estimate that it is from 2008 production. My drink accompaniment for this cigar was Dr. Pepper (I have been enjoying drinking this while smoking cigars lately... weird I know).
