Tasting Notes

This cigar was originally created for our importers in the UK Hunters and Frankau. A spicy and earthy Robusto rich and deeply complex.Possibly the best robusto for an after dinner smoke with a good cool easy draw and characteristic dark wrappers, the Ramon Specially is a firm favourite.

Fantastic Cigar! Thick voluptuous creamy smoke which coats the entirety of your mouth and is an absolute pleasure is placed alongside tastes of coffee and nuts. The formation of the stick is almost perfect with only a slight hitch in the burn but as the stick progresses this evens out. Around an hours smoke (if you can keep it out of your mouth long enough). If you are thinking of buying this cigar then do...but not them all as it's one which i will be purchasing again! 9.5/10

I'm a newcomer when it comes to cigars but even I could not help but notice the exquisiteness of this cigar. It burned really well and is a much slower cigar compared to others I've tried; you can easily go a few minutes between draws. Being an amateur I didn't light the cigar well but despite that by rotating whilst drawing the burn evened out! Definitely spicy taste and would recommend it for beginners. Don't forget it's also Cigar Aficionado's No.2 rated smoke of 2015!

Having tried R&J Montecristo and Cohiba (and thoroughly enjoying) I decided to try another Cuban brand. Having read the excellent reviews, I selected the Ramon Allones. What a disappointment. The burn was the worst I have ever known, and I've smoked some really cheap cigars too. Right from the off only one side seemingly wanted to burn. All of the initial experience was ruined by trying to make the adjustments to get a better burn. The flavour was none existent, just a bitter thick smoke more akin to being involved with a serious fire! After around 20 mins I decided to just give up. Maybe I just got unlucky this time, who knows, but I think I'll be giving this brand a miss in future.

Reviewed by Joe Gellman For those of you who like to read the last page of a book, first, this is a very special cigar which, in my opinion, rates as close to a perfect 100 as possible. Forget whatever you might have read about this cigar, you must experience it for yourself. Having smoked many RASS' in the past, I can say, without embarrassment, that the ones C.GARS Ltd sent were the best. I seriously consider it a great error not to order this cigar, if available, from C.GARS Ltd (the ones from other sources pale in comparison). The cigars were all an exacting 50 x 5, and all weighed 11g. This is the first time an entire box of cigars were dopplegangers of each other. Each cigar looked as if it had been lightly brushed with oil! The sheen was impressive and there was bloom forming on most of the cigars. They were all maduro (not to be confused with what passed as "maduro" from other countries); a deep, rich, brown, almost as dark as any Cuban cigar I have seen. I am sure the resplendence of oils helped to give this appearance. Each cigar was silky smooth and firm. All caps were typical of the hand of a top torcedor, and I would love to have his chaveta to mount on my wall, in a prominent place. Take a look on page 89 of "Havana Cigars" by Gerard Pere et Fils - my selection of RASS' make his picture look bland by comparison (I also disagree with his tasting notes, as you will see). The aroma of the cigar, out of the box, is one of cedar notes. The wrapper, likewise, tastes of cedar and musky wood. The cap cut without a problem (my companion smoker, Jenny Green cut hers while I used a punch). From the very first the cigar's flavor was of cedar; this did not diminish at all, throughout the smoke, but was melded with other flavors and aromas. The cigar started out subtly spicy and developed a stronger spicy flavor, but never was it overpowering. Within the first few minutes one could taste a blithely sweetness and an almost imperceptible fragile vanilla taste. There was a hint of fruit in the smoke, one which I was unable to identify, but there, nonetheless. The cigar was fresh, full, medium bodied, and held on to its very enticing flavors and aromas to the end. One marvel of the cigar was how well balanced it was. It was firm to the very last draw, which draw was always easy and cool. I mention the ash, last, though the lucky smoker of this cigar will notice it at all times. The ash was a very deep gray, almost verging on black. It was firm and had to be removed with some little force. It was solid and crunchy to the touch and showed a perfectly even burn. The ash did not give off any "ashlettes" which generally find a resting place on my shirt, tie, or slacks. I would be remiss if I did not urge the reader to buy a box. The price is right.

Reviewed by Josh Humphreys (October 2000) The first order I placed consisted of a group of various cigars, one of those being the Ramon Allones Specially Selected. Needless to say I was pleased to find 3 of them in my mailbox a few weeks ago. I decided to utilize the knowledge of a great friend in the taste testing process. We had an excellent time enjoying these fine cigars and the comments are somewhat a combination of our tastes. The construction of these cigars is flawless. They are a medium-dark brown and just slightly box pressed. Very few veins are present. The Specially Selected were in superb shape in terms of firmness. The colorful Ramon Allones band completes the cigar perfectly. From the initial cut and light, the complexness of this robusto began. The draw was smooth and easy. There seemed to be a hint of spice in the beginning, not too harsh with a very pleasant taste. As this enjoyable cigar was coming to an end, the taste became spicier with hints of coffee and cream. The finale of this beautiful vitola was pleasing to the palate with the continuing and heartier spice taste. The burn was consistently even and produced a nice pewter ash. With the ease of the draw, one would think that the amount of smoke produced would be high. It seemed with these smokes that the output was low but included a nice aroma. I would recommend these somewhat complex cigars to anyone that might be looking for a short yet powerful smoke. Accompanied by a glass of aged Puerto Rican rum, these smokes were are some of the best and most consistent Cuban's I have smoked. Thanks to C.GARS Ltd for allowing me to partake of these wonderful Ramon Allones Specially Selected.
