One of these cigars was initially sent to me by a generous BOTL as a result of a forum contest I had won. Coming with a specific request to review the smoke, I happily agreed to do so after it received some rest. Long story short, the flavor of the smoke was fantastic but it was unfortunately plugged to the point that, less than halfway in, it had to be abandoned or face the inescapable likelihood that my head would implode had I tried to continue. After informing the contest holder of the unfortunate occurrence he indicated that it was generally known about their construction flaws and despite my protests, he would send another. After receiving the second cigar and putting it down for several months to rest at 65% Rh I decided to fashion a follow-up attempt at the Ramon Allones 8-9-8.

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.

The Ramon Allones Specially Selected (RASS) is a popular Cuban robusto that has a pretty loyal following and you can count me among them. This is a cigar I've enjoyed for a while now and thought it was time for a formal review. This cigar is available in dress boxes of 25 and cabinets of 50.

This is probably the cigar that I wanted the most from the Limited Editions sampler. Ramon Allones Eminencias was released in 2005 to the Swiss market to celebrate the 160th anniversary of the brand. It is called Eminencia in honor of the factory where Ramon Allones were initially rolled. The vitola's name is Francisco and it's close to a corona gorda. There was a re-release in 2007 but the one I smoked is from the original release, considered as more successful. I was ready for a royal treat.

RASS a.k.a Ramon Allones Specially Selected being one of my all-time favorite Cuban cigars, my expectations concerning its little brother were high. Perhaps I was unlucky, but unfortunately the Ramon Allones Small Club Coronas was far behind it. Please note that I didn't smoke a whole box of these and this review is based on 4 cigars.

This was the very first Ramon Allones that I tried and it was a very pleasurable experience. Being a fan of Robustos, I was browsing some cigar ratings and noticed that Specially Selected was rated high. Since I managed to find some in my cigar shop, I decided to give it a proper review.
