Next month, we are expected to receive the final Edicion Limitada for 2019 in the UK. The cigar in question is the Ramon Allones Allones No. 2 Edicion Limitada 2019, and it is expected to debut in mid-August.
What Are Edicion Limitada Cigars?
As you may have gathered from the name, ‘Edicion Limitada’ cigars are limited edition smokes released by Habanos S.A.
Habanos S.A. is the part of the Cuban state tobacco company that promotes, distributes and exports Cuban cigars around the world.
Each year, they typically make three Edicion Limitada cigars for release. These cigars will be from popular Cuban cigar brands but will be a size or type not currently offered in the brand’s portfolio, making it a one-off smoking experience.
The cigars in this range will typically contain tobacco that is at least two years old.
In 2019, the three Edicion Limitadas were:
- Ramon Allones Allones No. 2
- Quai d’Orsay Senadores
- Montecristo Supremos
What is the Ramon Allones Allones No. 2?
The Ramon Allones Allones No. 2 is a cigar from the brand Ramon Allones, and it will be available in the UK from August.
The cigar measures 5 1/2 inches long with a ring gauge of 52, making it a Belicoso vitola.
This vitola was first seen in a 2005 Regional Edition cigar from Ramon Allones, which was commissioned by Hunters & Frankau for the UK market.
However, the 2019 cigar has several differences to the 2005 version. For one, the Allones No. 2 cigar features a much darker wrapper – a corojo – which offers a rich, medium-full-bodied flavour. As well as this, the Allones No. 2 cigar will be sold worldwide, rather than just in the UK as a regional edition.
When Will It Be Available?
Hunters & Frankau, the UK distributor for Cuban cigars, have a launch party set for the 19th of August 2020 for the Allones No. 2 Edicion Limitada.
Normally, such a launch would happen at a special in-person event, but due to current circumstances, a number of virtual launches will be taking place instead.
The cigar should then be available for retail during the same week as the launch. We will have stock available for the Ramon Allones Allones No. 2 2019 Limited Edition cigar in two formats – as a box of ten and as a single cigar.
