Cuba’s newest Regional Edition cigar is going on sale today in Mexico, and it’s a double-tapered Ramon Allones figurado. Known as the Tacos format in Cuban cigar factories, the Ramon Allones Perfecto Exclusivo México measures 6 1/4 inches by 47 ring gauge, the same size as the regular-production Partagás Presidente.
The Regional cigar comes in 10-count boxes and sells for 4,500 Mexican pesos (about $225) per box, which comes down to around $22.50 per smoke. It will officially debut at a launch party this evening held at Cigar Point, a whiskey bar and cigar lounge in Mexico City. Only 6,000 boxes are being produced.
This is Mexico’s first Regional Edition Cuban since the Punch Duke was released in early 2019. Previous Mexican Regionals include cigars from the highly regarded Edmundo Dantes line, a unique Cuban brand that was created especially for Mexico.
Like all Cuban cigars in Mexico, the Ramon Allones Perfectos are imported by regional Habanos distributor Importadora y Exportadora de Puros y Tabacos S.A. de C.V. (IEPT).
