    Great cigar indeed, bought some RE CANADA RA Gorditos too from 2010 and they are doing mighty fine. Keep up the good work!

    Well, there must be two different RASS on the market :(
    But lets start with the positive aspects: the cigar was well filled and gave me 65mins, pretty good for a robusto. Burn was decent, no need to refire. No harshness during the entire smoke, very pleasent all the way. The only problem with the cigar: it tasted sooo boring, there were hints of this and that, cedar, sweetness and so on but it was so weak…not gonna buy it again anytime soon

    My Review of the Ramon Allones Specially Selected

    This was really a fantastic cigar. It is a beautiful cigar with a very smooth wrapper that was a nice light brown. The wrapper was a little lighter than most RASS I’ve seen, but I have seen a lot a variance in color with this particular cigar. It is a very full bodied and flavorful. It came on strong in the beginning with a bold peppery flavor very similar to a Camacho Corojo, but it evened out quickly. The pepper gave way to very full and decadent earth and nutty tones with a chocolate like finish. The flavors had a very creamy feel to them. Of course underneath it all was that unmistakable Cuban flavor and aroma. The bouquet of this cigar is amazing.

    Very well balanced medium strength cigar, my number 1 preference of the Cuban Robustos.

    ‘Exhume’ doesn’t mean what you think it means.

    The RASS never fails to deliver pure pleasure. A wonderful cigar with beautiful, sweet Tobacco flavors. It’s at its zenith when smoked after a big meal with some high end rum. You can’t go wrong with this stick.

    … had one (1st of these!) yesterday & – sadly – was nowhere near as happy as with HOYOs (be it Epicure 2 or Petit RObusto) nor Trinidads nor Bolivars / hardly descriable tastes in the 1st & last third, only the 2nd 1/3 was truly enjoyable, sweet, nice, … but still: a reason might be in my semi-inexperience :-)) with cigars (5 to 6 years …).

    Will give it a try again in the futre BUT for now, nowhere near my TOP 6, let alone TOP 3 or very TOP. Hope it goes better next time, regards!

    Decent Cuban robusto. Have had 2-off from a CT sampler recently. There was a nice blend of flavours in this stick, without being outstanding. I’d be inclined to pick up a few singles for the humidor(s).

    Excellent presentation – my sentiments on all points. Received my latest box from CT, sampled one after a few days of R&R and the rest in their specially designated position in my humidor. And yeah – the amount of smoke IS surreal.
