Ramon Allones No. 3: The Cuban Cigar That Has Been Overlooked Until Now
The Ramon Allones brand has recently released a new regular-production cigar, the Allones No. 3, which seems to have flown under the radar for many cigar enthusiasts. Although it is set to be released in Switzerland this month, the cigar has already been spotted in some stores in the UK.
Measuring at 5 1/2 inches by 52 ring gauge, the Allones No. 3 is a thick format cigar that is referred to as Noblezas in Cuban cigar factories. It shares the same dimensions as the Partagás Series No. 1, which was an Edición Limitada released in 2017. The cigar comes in dress boxes of 10 and has not yet been priced for its global release.
The Ramon Allones brand has been shrinking over the last two decades, with Habanos S.A. reducing the line to only three sizes: Gigantes, Small Club Coronas, and Specially Selected. The Allones Superiores, which was released more than 10 years ago, is a La Casa del Habano exclusive and is still in production, but is not part of the standard line. Any new Ramon Allones cigars released today are typically limited editions such as Edición Limitadas, Regional Editions, or special anniversary humidors.
The Allones No. 3 has an interesting vitola that many cigar aficionados will likely enjoy. While Germany has already received the cigar, other regions such as the United Kingdom have yet to officially launch it. There is no word yet as to exactly when the Allones No. 3 will start appearing in other countries, but it is expected to trickle into the global markets throughout the year.
