Ramón Allones Cigars
Ramón Allones Cigars
Ramón Allones is the first Habanos manufacturer to have placed cigar bundles in boxes that he took care to decorate with the brand’s emblem. This label is called the vista. A bundle must include 3 levels: the lower level is made of 8 vitolas, the second level contains 9 and the upper level is made up of 8 vitolas. In all, a box contains 25 cigars. You should know that it was also at this time that Gustavo Bock created the ring, a strip of paper that surrounds the vitola just before his head. The rendering of the bundle of 25 cigars, each with a ring, all resting in a wooden box decorated with the vista, is impressive. The process will be taken up by other brands and will then become more widespread.
Influence and heritage
If Ramón Allones has implemented this cigar box system, it is mainly for the sake of practicality. He wanted to send his puros to distant destinations without damaging them. But Ramón Allones’ contribution to the development of the cigar industry is not limited to boxes. Smokers have made several characteristics of Ramón Allones cigars the quality criteria of an excellent Habano.
The 20th century
The brand changed owners in 1927. From this year, the manufacture of Ramón Allones cigars was carried out in the factory where Partagas cigars are also produced. The brand has never moved. The sustainability of the brand was then undermined with the advent of the Cuban revolution around the middle of the 20th century. Finally, the threat is only temporary and the production of high-end cigars is resuming. At the end of the 20th century, Ramón Allones became the property of the state-owned company Habanos SA.
All the cigars that come out of the Ramón Allones factory contain a mixture of tobacco from the Vuelta Abajo region. They release intense and complex flavors. The brand’s creations are long tripe cigars made entirely by hand. The catalog has 4 modules: Allones Superiores (caliber 46), Ramón Allones Gigantes (double corona – caliber 49), Ramón Allones Small Club Corona (petit corona – caliber 40), Ramon Allones Special Selection (Robusto – caliber 50).
Ramón Allones cigars are the result of almost 2 centuries of expertise. They are proof that the traditional methods give results which are close to perfection. So it’s no wonder that experienced smokers rank them among the best Habanos.
