Ramon Allones Specially Selected
As one of the smaller brands coming out of the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba, Ramon Allones isn’t a household name. But it should be.
With an incredibly complex character, the Ramon Allones Specially Selected cigars are surprisingly elegant, belying the Allones’ reputation for producing finely crafted, robust cigars.
Ramon Allones Specially Selected Overview
The Specially Selected from Ramon Allones is a Robusto that’s almost 5” long with a ring gauge of 50, so it’s quite stout. It comes in a cab of 25, is wrapped in a gorgeous milk-chocolatey brown wrapper with few veins, a slightly oily sheen, and a little springy give when you squeeze it.
Smoking a Ramon Allones Specially Selected
The pre-draw is redolent of sweet hay and cedar. The first third is surprisingly lively, with a medium body strength right off the bat and pepper in the nose and tongue.
The second third opens briskly, strengthening the complex flavors with deeper notes of leather and earth, which builds to tangs of sophisticated marzipan and mouth-watering black cherry.
The final third finishes strong, remaining peppery and spicy until the end.
Ramon Allones Specially Selected Cigar Value
Time in a humidor only increases the Specially Selected cigars’ excellent depth and complexity.
Paired with complicated repasts and equally complex liquors, these cigars are perfect for memorable moments. The longer you age them, the better they’ll be.
Ramon Allones Specially Selected Experience
Despite its stunning complexity, the Specially Selected is a well-balanced stick with a smoking time of around an hour. The Robusto offers an excellent burn that is never overheated or bitter.
As rich in history as it is in flavor, the Ramon Allones Specially Selected does not disappoint.
A wonderfully constructed and burning cigar. Don’t let it’s small size fool you; it is nicely balanced starting out med-full and progressing to full strength into the last 3rd. It is a nicely complex smoke as well with a dominant earthy flavor with underlying sweet notes and baker’s spices and a touch of that Cuban twang (zest) we all know and love! Great everyday smoke for those seeking a flavor bomb!
Ordered a box of 25 – fast delivery and arrived in perfect condition. Beautiful cigars smoked a couple so far – planning on storing the rest until next year. Already planning my next order from luxurycubans.com ! Thanks again!!
Very smooth cigars, very good condition. Was a pleasure to smoke true cuban Ramon Allones.
Great cigars with classic Ramon Allones flavours. Nuts, cocoa and espresso with a finish of cream. Highly recommended. Best cigars in this Vitola.
Received this box within 10 days and can’t wait to try them out. They look and smell great but will keep them in the wineador for a few months while I go through my current stash of demi coronas. I also got a box of Bolivar Corona Juniors and same goes for that box. I love luxury cubans: great pricing, great service and easy to use website
Arrived a little moist so will put them into storage for a little before trying. Quick shipping. They look and smell great so I can hardly resist digging in.
This little cigar packed a lot of power and taste…..waiting for the RASS to get in stock…..great cigars arrived perfect condition and right on time….
They are an absolute treat, and came in great condition.
A tasty short smoke. Alot of flavor.
A stunning petite corona filled with cocoa and cream. Mild coffee flavours and a little woody. Great burn and draw. It’s Cuban tobacco at its finest. Thanks to luxury cubans, spectacular service and product!
I was super impressed by these minutos. Medium brown wrappers with a bit of a box press, they feel nice in the hand. I thought they started out medium before progressing to medium-full. I got cocoa, cream, maybe little coffee. Nice hints of pepper during the second half. I think I prefer the SCC to its larger, Specially Selected brother.
The rasc box was dated Feb 16. So they are good but young. Slightly sweet and faintly reminiscent of the Rass. My San Cristobal El principe are dated Apr 15 and have more flavor. Will report back on these in a year.
This was my first experience using luxuxry cubans, and I couldn’t have been any more delighted
An other excellent service from luxury cubans. The delivery was on time and without any problem.
Cigars arrived in good time and looked and smelled great with no damage. Box is dated feb16 and they were just about the right humidity; the last order or romeos seemed a little moist. Cigars smoke great and have a good full taste as advertised. They kind of remind of a stronger montecristo with less of a creamy taste. A couple were tight( one almost so tight I could not smoke it) so that is why the 4 stars but I am well aware that cubans are not always very consistent in draw
Cigars came in a reasonable amount of time, about 2 weeks. They’re the real deal. Only smoked one so far, the draw was very tight however, after some time to rest in the humidor they’ll get better. Flavor was spectacular by the way,
Cigars arrived quite quickly and in good shape. These cigars are flavorful and not as spicy as other brands. Worth sharing with friends.
I finally received my Ramon Allones Small Club Coronas today! The package was stopped by the customs and due the combination of the lousy work they are doing and the introduction of a new system of treating international packages stopped by customs by the local post office it took almost 2 months from the moment of purchase!!! Everything that might get wrong went wrong! I must say that luxury cubans helped all the way with absolutely everything I needed through the process! Thank you very much! Another very important thing is that the cigars came in perfect condition after 2 months of being stored who knows where and how. So, thank you again luxury cubans for taking your job seriously, for doing things the right way! I’m a very happy customer, again
Cigars arrived in excellent condition, perfectly packaged! Very happy with the quality!
Does not make a difference what I purchased. Always top notch service and cigars. Why would anyone want to go elsewhere. Best regards
Great little one nice chocolate taste
Perfect for afternoon coffee break
Fast delivery. Sticks right into humidor. Can’t wait to puff away. Friends recommended Ramon Allones. Next up, will try the Specially Selected.

Arrived very fast and in great shape. Real nice flavor
Ordered a box of 25. Box came sealed, cigars were fresh, as advertised, and tasty. Will be ordering again.
This is a great smoke with a pepper and nutty coffee bean taste
A little slow on the delivery but good quality
Great smoke with notes of coffee, cocoa, and all spice. Overall, an exceptionally smooth smoke with a long oily finish. Mild to medium body and strength.
Tasty little cigar and for a great price too
The cigars were exactly as advertised. They arrive in great sealed box condition. Shipping took a little longer than anticipated but was spot on. I will be buying more of these.
This is my second time ordering the RA small club corona. They are a good short smoke I like to bring them on cruises. I have had no issues ordering from luxury cubans and will use them in the future for my cuban cigar needs.
Great cigars, Love the way they always come packaged.
Wanted these for those moments one needs a quick smoke. And they are delicious sticks: a mild and easy smoke. Delivery took a bit longer than expected, but very happy overall…
Great taste great service.
Service great! Cigars better.
Have ordered many times from this trusted site and always am pleased. The cigars arrive in perfect shape! They are very enjoyable.
GOOD TASTE COULD HAVE A BETTER WRAP.
As a newer member of the Cigar community, these had a great taste, and are the perfect size. Would recommend building in a cushion for delivery, but the support staff responds quickly and provides great service. I will likely try more styles and flavors moving forward, but would recommend this cigar to anyone.
Great flavor in a short smoke
The “RASS” is consistently always a good smoke. It’s notes of leather, spice, coffee, and cedar remain a constant box after box. They are my go to cigar when I remain undecided on my next smoke because of this.
Just got these singles to try and couldn’t let them sit in my humidor for more than a week. I would agree with previous comments about this cigar as far as flavor very creamy lots of smoke and good amount of spice and medium flavor. My first one had an irregular burn which was bothersome but was a very nice smoke. Don’t think they are as strong asthe Partagas which are my favs but this is a great addition. Going to try to let the others age a while in the humidor
This is a great robusto! Very smooth and creamy flavors and lots of flavorful smoke. Medium to full in body with some spiciness. I would say this robusto lies between the Partagas D-4 and Bolivar Royal Corona as far as strength. This will become one of my favorites I’m sure! Just hope I can let some age in my humidor!
Got a box of these today and one word, perfect!
They got to me in less then 10 days. Been ordering from here for about a year and I will only order from here.
Received my box of 25 of RASS on time and in perfect condition thanks to luxury cubans. The cigars were beautiful and silky smooth. The light was easy and the draw was divine. I notice in other reviews a taste of pepper was detected but none was detected in mine. I did have a bit of irregular burn like Joe but I left it alone and it worked itself out. Silkycreamy flavor all the way to the last third and then a stronger finish. This will not be my last box of RASS.
Just received my first order from luxury cubans. Very happy with the transaction. Cigars arrived 14 days from my order date. I ordered a sample of different cigars. This is a great option with luxury cubans and allows you to try some different cigars without buying a whole box. Cigars were well packed in Humi-Pouches. The pouches were places in a plastic envelope and the envelope in a cardboard box. Very secure packing. The best part was I paid no extra charges on delivery. Of course with samples the price per stick is slightly higher compared to buying a box and I do not know the age of the cigars but they were all in very good condition. I will be ordering boxes and more samples for sure.
The cigars that I get from you are always great and fresh
Cocoa … Sweet bread.. Little earth… Smoothness for days.
A nice little smoke! Creamy and sweet. A light taste of mild brewed coffee and cocoa. I found this stick to be medium bodied.
Shipment arrived on time and the cigars look and smell wonderful. Rated 96 points by CA and they are spot on with that rating. Rich and deep flavor of earth and almonds. Full bodied but not overly strong. A must have for any serious Cuban cigar smoker.
This Is a classic that will leave you wanting more and more! luxury Cuban always delivers fresh perfect cigars every time!
Excellent website and delivered when promised. Will shop there again.
Fine draw, thick smoke and excellent flavor.
Finally smoked one after 6 months or so in the humidor. Rich earthy core with dark chocolate and that Cuban creaminess everyone talks about. This cigar is what non Cuban cigars want to be when they grow up, it lived up to it’s stellar reputation…I’ll be ordering a box when they are in stock. Cheers.
Box date on these RASS is over a year old and will let them rest awhile and try one. These are truly beautiful sticks and the wrappers look so impressive with that box press and beautiful sheen!
luxury cubans got this batch to me within a week! I love it! Thanks!
One of the best Cuban cigars on the market and a bargain to boot. Ramon Allones has been setting the GOLD standard for Cuban smokes these days and the Specially Selected is “must have” in everyone’s humidor.
Toasty, grahamy, sweet, smooth, balanced, earthy and some salt and god knows what else. Bought some singles and got them last week, this week I’m ordering a box. Highly highly recommend
This cigar is a must try. Excellent quality, smooth, smoked it down to the end. Superb customer service from luxury cub as always. Fast shipping too.
The cigars are box date Feb 16. Which is very young. Even for a young cigar the smoke very well and should improve with time. They arrived is exactly 9 days in great condition. As always finest cuban cigars shows why they are the best site to order genuine habanos from.
These are simply delicious. Slightly sweet and spicy. Even though my shipment is young they have great flavors. My favorite Cuban cigar right now. luxury cubans, I thank you for the good service.
Just about un-smokeable obviously because I know what they “could/should” be. With Cuban trying its best to keep up I guess we will have to get use to this. The filler was very unusual in that no variation in color what so every. I’m use to seeing some differences in leaf…lets hope thats not the reason for the dastardly flavor. Holding my breathtill then
Everything was excellent except for the the box was a bit young, less than a year from the stamp date. The seller should have chosen a different box to ship instead.
Just grabbed a box of Rass. Landed super fast, great price ,fantastic customer service. It would be stupid to shop anywhere else.
Very nice flavor. Lots of potential with age.
If I were marooned alone on an island, I can’t imagine a nicer companion than a box of 50 of the Ramon Allones Special Select (in case I got marooned for a long time). It is a complex and flavorful smoke, a perfect length for a smoke over a drink or after dinner. luxury cubans delivered, as usual, a perfect box of these puros. The delivery was speedie as well.
Very good cigars, full of flavor have more resting in the humidor should be even better with some more age. Thanks luxury cubans the best service the only spot I do business with.
Beautiful cigar. Smooth, mellow and very enjoyable smoke. Especiiallly with a large G&T!!
These are really fine cigars. Great for 9 holes of golf or after a nice dinner.
Receive the cigars in perfect condition as usual. Excellent smoke even for a young cigar.
This cigar has a very unique flavor unlike any Cubans I’ve smoked and is very quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Very reasonably priced. If you have a sour tooth and love honey and cocoa then this is the cigar for you. As usual the order I placed with Finest is the reason I continue ordering. Phenomenal service and fantastic cigars.
This was my second order from luxury cubans. Both took 14 days. Not an issue. They arrived in very good condition. Smoked one right after I received them and the rest went straight to the humidor. Good smoke. Will order again from luxury cubans
There a little light of a smoke from the start but keep getting better as they burn
Great service great smoke great price ,,,,,what else is there
Receive the cigars timely and in great condition. Highly recommend luxury cubans for all your needs!
Excellent cigar; smooth, buttery, with a hint of pepper
My favorite is the Partagas SD#4, but I have to put the RASS right up there with it. Great service too!
These cigars are very good, on a whole different level when it comes to strength compared to other robusto’s if you are going to smoke these make sure you have a very good meal or you’ll be overwhelmed by the power that these cigars deliver
Still among the best!!
Great condition and great taste. I love it.
Delivery was perfect as usual
This cuban is a friend to me, as well as I know I can get relax and confort as reaching a safe harbor after a busy day. A kind of sweetness spreading from the intense and tipically cuban flavor. It burns regularly and, inspite of the land where it comes from, doesn’t show a lot of increasing strength from the first to the third third (from beginning to end) of the smoking. Opens firm and tightly continues. Due to the mildness of the feeling, It’s better to pay attention not to take the risk to come to the end without an aware appreciation of this delight
