Ramón Allones Hexagone Arrives in France


France has its second Edición Regional of the year on its shelves, as the Ramón Allones Hexagone Edición Regional Francia is now available throughout the country.


The new cigar measures 5 1/2 inches (140mm) long with a 54 ring gauge, a robusto extra vitola known as the Duke that made its debut in 2009’s Romeo y Julieta Dukes, one of the Edición Limitada releases that year. It has since been used for the Partagás Serie E No.2 and the La Gloria Cubana Platinum Edition Edición Regional Paises Bajos, which was scheduled for a 2016 release in The Netherlands but didn’t appear until September 2017.

The release is limited to 6,000 individually numbered boxes of 10 cigars, a total run of 60,000 cigars. It is priced at €14.40 per cigar and €144 per box, approximately USD $17 and $170, respectively.

While most countries or regions are able to receive only one Edición Regional in a year, France is a bit of an anomaly as there are two distributors that serve the country. Corpova, S.A.S. handles the majority of Habanos S.A. brands in the country—including the Ramón Allones marca—as well as being a dealer in Algeria and Monacho, while SEITA handles two brands, Jose L. Piedra and Quai d’Orsay, the latter of which added the Secreto Cubano in February.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
