Montecristo No. 4 Reserva were released in 2007 in very limited quantities (only 5.000 boxes were made) in tribute to the best-selling Cuban cigar ever, Montecristo No. 4. I got mine courtesy of TopCubans.com and I was very eager to try it out. Needless to say, they have become very hard to find since 2007.

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.

Let me start off by saying that I am a huge Bolivar fan. I’m not always sure how to describe the distinct flavor I get from this brand, but I certainly enjoy it. That said, here we have a regional edition exclusive to Canada. Let’s see how it compares.

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.

We would like to express our gratitude to Richard Cordero who took amazing photographs for this review. Thank you!

Habanos Edicion Limitada 2007. To read the advertising on this cigar one would think it would provide something of a religious experience. Where it was an amazing experience, it took some work to get there. There are still, unfortunately, some hit and miss issues from the Island South of Miami.

Romeo y Julieta Escudos are only available in the 2007 limited edition. In Spanish, escudo means shield or arms and there is not much information about this cigar. We only know that the tobacco leaves for the wrapper, binder and filler have been aged for at least 2 years. The factory name, gordito, is simply a longer robusto.

Bolivar Petit Libertador is the first regional edition to be reviewed on this site. To be honest, I am quite sceptical about the regional editions concept - 2 years of marketing courses make me think that we pay extra dough for a feeling of uniqueness. Let's see whether this is true.

This Montecristo belongs to the Seleccion Piramides Series, a limited edition of 5 Cuban piramides released in 2003. You can get yours here.

An incredibly beautiful smoke, the Montecristo Seleccion Piramide was completely different from the previously reviewed Cohiba which I also found excellent. If you have already tried a Montecristo No. 2 you probably know what to expect out of this one - creamy and smooth flavors, soothing yet entertaining. All of this with impeccable look and construction.
