Ramon Allones

Ramon Allones
Gigante Havana,
Cuba

Ramon Allones is one of the most respected Cuban cigars, with a loyal following. Considered to be the finest double corona around, the Gigante is an obvious choice for the fifty best list. Created by Ramon and Antonio Allones in the early 1800's, thought to be the first brand to use lithographed boxes and to package cigars in the 8-9-8 style. The Gigante measures a whopping 7-5/8" x 49, and demands the smoker dedicate some well spent time to experience it. This meaty-tasting cigar is quite complex, with floral and nut-like undertones, and herbs throughout. The flavor is an earthy quality, with leather on the palette. Handsome, with silky feel and smooth texture. These cigars will age beautifully. Perfect for after a great meal.

Rocky Patel
Vintage 1992 Toro
Filler: Dominican Republic & Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Ecuador

Rooted in the Indian Tabac name (from the Indian motorcycle company), this is the brainchild and progeny of the tireless Rocky Patel. A true statesman and entrepreneur, Rocky has tirelessly promoted this brand and the Vintage is his arrival. Behold the chocolate beauty before you. A true boutique brand and blend with mature vintage tobacco, just begging for a light. The 10 year-old Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper hugs the well-constructed filler and binder, lending a slightly spicy sensation. Rich, complex and balanced, this cigar delivers cocoa notes with distinct smoothness. All the rave when paired with coffee or your personal favorite beverage-- Cognac comes to mind. An elegant and refined smoke created in the tradition of Cuban excellence.

Romeo y Julieta Churchill

Romeo y Julieta
Churchill
Havana, Cuba

There are many reasons why the historied Romeo y Julieta brand has appointed the Churchill as its foremost representative. This is a smoke with pedigree. The cigar is magnificent with all the complexity one would desire in a world-class smoke, worthy of its namesake Winston Churchill himself. Harking to its name, the look is more than attractive, with beautiful coloring and impeccable construction. Upon lighting, the toasty flavors and easy draw will soothe. As the burn develops, so do the flavors of creaminess ensue. Many fond memories will be created and enjoyed while smoking this legendary cigar. One must linger with each puff, as this is not a short term relationship. It is true romance in a cigar lover's quest.

Romeo y Julieta
Vintage

Without a doubt, the Romeo y Julieta is one of the world’s most luxurious cigars. Aging can work wonders, and this beauty lends itself quite well to the process. The result is a vintage Dominican Olor tobacco aged for three years. The delicate wrapper, a flawless Ecuadorian Connecticut, is oh, so handsome to behold. Silky to the touch and without blemish, the ever-popular Lonsdale size imparts a regal flavor. A perfect draw, with coffee-like flavors and a smidgeon of spice. This is a smooth, mild beauty, not one to knock you over. But those who swear by it, will smoke nothing else. The box containing this prize is actually a humidor, a nice added touch.

Sancho Panza

Sancho Panza
Extra Fuerte Madrid
Filler: Honduras / Dominican Republic / Nicaragua
Wrapper: Connecticut Shade-Grown

Celebrating the brand's 160th year, this Cuban only just arrived in 2005. The same size as the Montecristo #2, but different in flavor and in its heritage. Subtly spicy, this cigar embodies the classic Partagas character all the way. The wrapper is oily and brown with a musky scent that greets the lucky smoker. The cigar looks creamy and tastes that way upon lighting, with the famous hint of Partagas spice. It is a known fact that some cigars improve measurably with age. This is one cigar that will age and refine the longer it rests in your humidor. Some say this is the best cigar coming out of Cuba at present. Absolutely deserving to be among the fifty best.

Victor Sinclair Serie 55 Red Grand Reserve

Victor Sinclair
Serie 55
Grand Reserve Red Label
Robusto

Balancing the art of blending and aging, this exquisite smoke utilizes a five-country blend, and an extensive five year aging process. Hence the "55" name. A flavorful blend of Cameroon, Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Brazilian long filler, wrapped in a gorgeous red Corojo leaf. When smoking this medium to full-bodied cigar, think of black cherry notes and spice mixed with flavors of earth and leather-- All springing forth from the beautiful reddish-brown wrapper. This is not a smoke to rush through, but one to savor and enjoy slowly. Some say the Series 55 from Victor Sinclair is simply marvelous. If you are fortunate enough to try one, most likely you will agree. Lay this one down in your humidor for additional aging, to really develop the full potential of its greatness.
