The cigar is looking great, a nice brown color, perfectly hand rolled, the triple cap looks amazing. It is pretty heavy in hands. The wrapper is smooth and quite oily, with few veins on the surface.
Before lighting up
The wrapper smells of hay and nuts.
Once cut, the draw is easy and effortless all the way. It tastes of wood, leather and toast. There are also earthy and spicy notes on the lips. The burn line is neat and the cigar produces a generous velvety and creamy white smoke that tastes of vanilla.
In the first third the dominant flavors are of toast, nuts, dry fruit, mocha, and coffee, wood but also of earth and leather. Through the nose, some spice, licorice and hay. There are also sweet notes of honey, caramel and bitterness of berries. Overall, the first third is typical Ramon Allones, very creamy but very complex and the smoke is at the medium mark.
In the middle third, the dominant flavors are still of dry fruits, toast bread, coffee, vanilla but a new floral character appears, joined with some tea and some light spices in the finish. Overall, the cigar is now medium to full body. This is a great third, with a bit more bitterness.
In the final third, nutty flavors come back, and the dominant ones are of wood, toast, leather, and char. There are also notes of cacao, licorice and some sweet notes of cream, butter, almost like pastry. Few hints of black pepper, bitterness of berries make this third even more complex, with a long and great finish. Overall, this third is on the medium to full mark.
In summary, the Ramon Allones Gigantes is great complex cigar, ideal for a long yet moderately priced Cuban treat.

- It needs a few years to marry the flavors, but this is my favorite Double Corona. Take your time and you have 2.5 hours of world-class tobacco.
