Tobacco Novelties 2011
Cigar lovers from all over the world are quite pleased with the upcoming release of the new Ediciones Limitadas from famed Habanos brands Cohíba, Ramón Allones and Hoyo de Monterrey.
Considered the fl agship brand of Habanos, Cohiba will release, by the year’s end, its Edición Limitada, named Cohiba 1966, which commemorates the 45th anniversary of Cohiba.
With a unique format specially selected for this occasion, the Cohiba 1966 has been made totally by hand using a selection of tobacco leaves, aged for a minimum of two years, from the plantations of San Juan y Martínez and San Luis in the Vuelta Abajo area, in western Pinar del Rio province. On the other hand, Ramón Allones has for the fi rst time an Edición Limitada, named Allones Extra, characterized by its intense fl avor that makes of this brand one of smokers’ favorites.
Allones Extra was produced up until the 1970’s and is now newly released, as Edición Limitada, with the rings having the original design historically used by the brand.
Hoyo de Monterrey also presents this year its Edición Limitada with the Short Hoyo Pirámide vitola. Its dimensions are considered ideal for those who prefer Habanos of lighter fl avors, but also for those newcomers in the extraordinary world of Habanos.
The La Casa del Habano franchise stores of the world have some surprises prepared, this time for lovers of the H.Upmann brand, with the release of the new Royal Robusto vitola.
Characterized by the aroma and light to medium fl avour of this brand, founded in 1844, the boxes of the new vitola are decorated with the gold medals that certify the awards obtained in no less than eleven international exhibitions during the 20th Century.
With the new vitolas, the afi cionados will have another reason to celebrate with new habanos made in the land of the best cigars of the world.
