Great Britain Receives New Regional Edition Smoke
Posted: October 9, 2012
Less than five months after receiving the 2011 Regional Edition Punch Medalla d’Oro, cigar shops in the United Kingdom have received their 2012 Regional Edition cigar from Cuba: The Ramon Allones Petit Belicoso.
Described by some as the “little brother” to the U.K.’s original Regional Edition, the 2005 Ramon Allones Belicoso, the Petit Belicosos measure a tidy 5 inches long by 52 ring gauge. The smokes are priced at about £17.40 ($28) per cigar, or £145 ($234) for a box of ten.
They carry the silver and red secondary bands that say Exclusivo Gran Bretaña. Production has been limited to 5,000 boxes, each of them numbered.
Whereas the 2011 Regional Edition smokes were very late, the 2012s were early by “a few weeks,” said British cigar retailer Ajay Patel, who runs the United Kingdom’s sole La Casa del Habano.
