Habanos S.A. has announced its annual trio of Edición Limitadas, selecting the Montecristo, Ramón Allones and—for the first time ever—Quai d’Orsay brands.
The announcement was made earlier today at the kick off of the annual Festival del Habano in Havana, Cuba. The Edición Limitada Series was started in 2000 and has been relatively consistent ever since. Each year—since 2005—Habanos S.A. creates three different cigars, all non-production sizes of existing brands. In addition, all the tobacco used for Edición Limitadas is said to be aged for at least two years.
The new 2019 Limited Editions are: Montecristo Supremos (55 x 130 mm), Allones No. 2 by Ramón Allones (52 x 140 mm) and Quai D'Orsay Senadores (48 x 157 mm). #XXIFestivaldelHabano pic.twitter.com/G94k5kWqrA
