Ramon Allones Gigantes
Cuba’s double coronas are a regal lot, long and stately cigars that are substantial but never go overboard on thickness. The Ramon Allones Gigantes is probably the least known of the bunch, but it’s a cigar that delivers big flavor again and again, seldom dipping below 90 points in Cigar Aficionado blind tastings. The latest versions we have smoked are delicious, nutty and floral cigars that build on a backbone of toastiness along with an array of spices, including white pepper, vanilla and cinnamon. These are long cigars meant for leisurely smoking, cigars that cannot—and should not—be rushed.
