Ramon Allones Specially Selected

More reviews here. Box code was TEB ENE 08. Smoked Friday 21 November.


After my enjoyable experience with the Le Hoyo du Depute in the pub earlier I fancied another cigar. This time the RASS got picked. This was a typical RASS. I’d been reading other reviews beforehand as I was trying to pick out what the dominant taste was that I couldn’t quite ascertain previously. Fruit stood out-but it’s not a sweet fruit note. I’d read cherries, but I’d almost describe it more as a rich raspberry.

Draw and construction were good. The wrapper looks oilier in the picture than it actually was. I had burn problems with this. Whether that was down to my current habit of storing the boxes propped open with a matchstick ie. uneven moisture distribution throughout the cigar, or just poor lighting technique I don’t know, but I’m going to close them up for a while and see if it makes a difference.
