Habanos launches the last 2019 Edicion Limitada. Next month, on August 19 to be precise. In the United Kingdom with a mixed virtual and on-location event across the country. Any British La Casa del Habano as well as all tobacconists with a Habanos Specialist status are invited to join the event. As well as selected hotels, restaurants, bars, and private clubs. But only if they can meet the social distancing restrictions that are in place due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The event packages include one of the new Ramon Allones No.2 Edicion Limitada 2019. Plus a cognac glass, a sampler of Hine Cognac, custom chocolates, and two surprise items. A booklet with tasting notes on the cigar, chocolate, and cognac is also included.

The size

Even though the shape and the name are identical to the Montecristo No.2, the size isn’t. Both cigars have the No.2 number and both are torpedos. But with 5½x52, the Ramon Allones No.2 is smaller than the most sold Habanos cigar in the world. The Montecristo No.2 measures 6 ⅛ x52 and therefore is bigger than the Ramon Allones Edicion Limitada 2019.

The cigars are available for sale at appointed tobacconists from August 19th in the United Kingdom. The rest of the world will see the cigars appear on the shelves of retailers in the weeks after. Due to the 58-year-old Cuban embargo from the United States, the USA is excluded.

Other 2019 Edicion Limitada

Since it’s conception, twenty years ago, Habanos released a minimum of three limited edition cigars a year. In the early years four or five cigars annually. Since 2005, three limited edition cigars are released each year. The Montecristo Supremos Edicion Limitada 2019 launched last July in Italy. But only reached retailers early this year. The Quai d’Orsay Senadores launched in Paris last September.

Only one limited edition for 2020 is revealed by Habanos so far. THat’s the Partagas Legado. That’s a 6 ⅛ x48 Gran Corona. When those cigars hit the market is yet to be seen. The other two cigars in the Edicion Limitada program for 2020 are unknown at the moment of publication.
