herfin’ in sunny Majorca…not!

My latest travels took me to sunny Majorca for 10 days fun in the sun….except that it rained for 8 days)-:! …and the sun was in London!

Ahhh well such is life ,at least Majorca seems to be cigar friendly just about everywhere I went,hotels,restaurants,even the airport had a smoking area.

Armed with my humipouch filled with Ramon belicosos,Bolivar belicosos,Partagas shorts and Monte 2’s as well as my ceramic cigar cutter ( no way can security detect that in my hand baggage!) and a few disposable lighters,I was ready to kick back :-)

I think I’m falling in love………… with the Ramon Allones belicosos

I thought the RA Belis were awfully young and a bit rough at the edges when they first came out.The freshness drowned out the flavours.

I revisited them last November and they were a different beast altogether far more soft,rounded and balanced.Very smooth and complex as well as full flavoured.They have now joined my daily rotation:-)

They appear more expensive to our overseas friends all the time with the awful exchange rate sadly ( sorry can’t help that )-: )…

I have not heard about these being sold anywhere but the UK yet and was under the impression that we had exclusive on them for 2007 but I could be wrong.

Of course it may well be worth the wait but bear in mind they are not likely to taste the same as the original release as the cigars will be from a different vintage ….they may be better!…and cheaper …or not!

If price is sensitive,stay away..there are so many great Havanas available these days,the choice is quite amazing.

These days I almost exclusively smoke piramides and campanas.I don’t know why it took me 27 years to discover that the only size I truly enjoy are these but hey ho…it’s been a trip:-)

Hotel Gran Playa in Majorca (and Ramon belicosos!)..highly recommended,splendid pool ( as long as the sun shines!) and superb service.

My kinda herfin’ location…as long as the sun shines!
