A Cuban Edición Limitada hasn’t appeared on our Top 25 since 2012, but the Ramon Allones Allones No. 2 proved to be one of the finest ELs we’ve had in years. Like all cigars in Cuba’s limited-edition program, the Ramon Allones is covered in a darker, higher-priming wrapper than usual and rolled in a unique size normally not found within the brand.
The cigar was a year behind schedule and didn’t start reaching retail outlets until October 2020. Habanos was never clear as to what the hold-up was, but with the cigar’s big meaty character and sweeter notes of cocoa powder, almond and cinnamon, it was worth the wait.
