Ramon Allones Private Stock 230 UK Regional Edition - Singles
This UK Regional Edition was originally intended to mark Hunters & Frankau’s 230th Anniversary in 2020 but has been unavoidably delayed, until now.
It is a rare size, known as a Partagás 16 in the factories of Cuba, and measures 6 3⁄4” (170mm) x 50. All 90,000 cigars have been rolled at the Partagas factory in Havana and are presented in 3,600 numbered Cabinet Nature boxes of 25.
Private Stock was the name of a cigar which previously existed in the Ramon Allones portfolio. Although production was discontinued in the 1970’s, H&F archives show that this cigar continued to be available in the UK until 1981. The black and white band of the Private Stock 230 is a recreation of those used by Ramon Allones during the height of the Private Stock’s popularity. However, this celebratory cigar also bears the size name on it, making it unique.
The Private Stock 230 was seen for the first time, before general release, as part of the Hunters & Frankau House Reserve Series 1790 Collection No.2.
This is where the story began. The first of a thousand pages of pleasure for cigar aficionados across the world and across the decades. In 1969, as Apollo 11 blasted off for the moon, Davidoff launched its Classic Number One. Christened a Classic and destined to be a classic. This was the iconic format, the panetela larga which defined the Davidoff difference. Smoothness had reached new heights and new lengths. Here was a cigar which was luxuriously long, slender but mild and aromatic. Indeed, its aromas were instantly recognisable. This was a statement of how Davidoff would do things differently. Not different to be different. Different to be better.
The Davidoff signature had been written on the world of cigars. Fittingly then that the Classic No. 1 should be reborn as the Signature No. 1 Limited Edition. The format and blend have been lovingly re-crafted by our rollers half a century later. The construction is, as it always was, immaculate from start to finish. Consistency is how we have always rolled.
The flavours are as subtle and enchanting as ever. The intermingling of barley, cream and cedar wood cannot be put into words but somehow has been put into a cigar. Once again everyone has the opportunity to enjoy one of the best loved cigars in the cigar world. Each one is a tale with twists and turns, sensations developing like the most compelling of plots.
Like any classic novel, you will not want to put it down.
The Fillers are all Dominican paired with an Ecuadorian Hybrid 151 Seco Binder and a Ecuadorian Connecticut Wrapper.
Format: Panatela Larga RG: 39 Length – 7 ½" Strength – 2/5 Pairing suggestion: The Signature line is best enjoyed with an aromatic milky coffee. The cigars’ smooth, creamy aromas of barley, cream and cedar wood make them perfect to fill every occasion, and every moment, beautifully.
To celebrate the Chinese New Year, Davidoff draws inspiration from the Chinese zodiac and presents an exclusive collection of limited edition products dedicated to the Year of the Rabbit.
Due to the cigar's elegant perfecto format, the character of the blend reveals itself layer by layer. Filler tobaccos with an average maturity of 4 1/2 years and an Ecuadorian wrapper create a refined taste experience which pleases with notes of pepper, leather and cacao.
Like the Rabbit's personality, the box's lacquered exterior is elegantly calm and does not yet reveal the depth it holds inside. The interior of the box is reminiscent of a rabbit warren with interlinked sections for the ten perfecto cigars.

The H. Upmann Magnum 52 has been launched by Habanos SA in celebration of the Chinese lunar year of the tiger.
The cigars are presented in special lacquered boxes each containing 18 cigars and represent the third year in a row that a cigar has been made for this auspicious event.
Technically the Magnum 52 is a unique size within the Habanos SA portfolio, measures 5 7/8” (148mm) x 52 ring gauge. However, if it appears familiar it may be due to its similarity with the Cohiba Siglo VI, being just 2mm shorter and sharing a 52 ring gauge.
Although created for the Chinese market these cigars are available worldwide and seem sure to prove popular with cigar smokers and collectors across the globe.
Mr. Leopoldo Cintra González, Commercial Vice President, and Mr. José María López Inchaurbe, Vice President of Development at Habanos, S.A. said “We are pleased to commemorate the Chinese New Year for the third consecutive year with a vitola such as “Magnum 52′′ under the H. Upmann brand. We are convinced that Habanos aficionados will enthusiastically welcome this worldwide launch, which will be available in all markets, albeit in limited quantities as it is an exclusive production,”
For those who can’t read ancient Greek, “ΟΜΗΡΟΣ” translates to Homer, a nod to the epic poet who penned TheIliad and The Odyssey, two canonic works of ancient Greek literature. It’s perhaps a bit of poetic justice that this cigar is named for a literary figure, as the Sancho Panza brand has literary roots as well. Sancho Panza is a character from the epic Spanish Cervantes novel Don Quixote. - Cigar Aficionado
This Sancho Panza was intended for 2020, but like so many Cuban cigars, the release date was delayed. The Regional Edition was unveiled in typical celebratory fashion late last month at a lavish launch party at Nammos, a seaside venue in Limassol on the coast of Cyprus.
The term “Angel’s Share” is used in the wine-making process. Winemakers often use oak barrels to store their wine during the aging process. When the wine ages for long periods of time, some of it will evaporate from the barrel. The evaporated wine is called the Angel’s Share, alluding to the belief that the guardian angels that watch over the wine, sample it and give their blessings.
Since Fuente lost so much priceless aged tobacco during the fire in 2012, the inspiration for this cigar came from that exact term.
The burned-down warehouses contained tobacco that had been aging since the late 40s and 50s. The Fuente family was saving it for the special 100-year anniversary. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be, as the fire consumed much of the precious tobacco. It made the family extremely sad and depressed, but out of that came the Angel’s Share cigar.
From this, it is implied that the Angels enjoyed the enticing aroma from the tobacco that burned in the barns but in turn, gave their blessings to the Fuente family for future successful endeavors.
The Fuente Fuente OpusX Angel’s Share uses a wrapper from the middle priming of the tobacco plant as opposed to the top priming from which Fuente Fuente OpusX are typically made. Carlos Fuente Jr. focused more on this part of the plant, which he believes is where most of the heart and flavour is.
