FatPete Posted April 15, 2019 Share Posted April 15, 2019 Ramon Allones Petit Belicoso GUT SEP 12 This was the U.K. Regional Edition for 2012. A small torpedo, measuring 4.9" with a 52 ring gauge, which was just the right size for today's smoke on a cold dry day. Dry boxed for 4 days from 67RH Nice firm construction but the colorado claro wrapper was quite thin and already peeling off the foot. I V cut for a change, the draw was actually quite loose with no more than sweet tobacco coming through. First third Starts off smooth and mild, with toasted tobacco and hay. Stays this way for a while before black coffee mixes in. Second third Hay goes, black coffee stays, mixed with toasted tobacco flavour. Last third The cigar gets sweeter at this point, coffee fades replaced by nutmeg and a little white pepper. The best part of the cigar for me. Unfortunately the weak wrapper split at this point which made it difficult to smoke, so I had to finish it earlier than I would have liked. Conclusion: A quite different profile to my old favourite, the RASS, but nice transitions for the size of the cigar. Never quite reached medium body. It is still available for £60 per cigar in the U.K. but I think I'll pass. Score: 89 points 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
