The Ramón Allones Perfecto, a new Edición Regional for Mexico, has made its way to retail shelves after getting a launch party on Thursday evening.

It is a perfecto that measures 6 1/4 inches (158mm) long with a 47 ring gauge, a vitola called Tacos that is used for the Partagás Presidentes and the Hoyo de Monterrey Elegantes, the latter of which is an exclusive to La Casa del Habano retailers.

It is also the second Ramón Allones Edición Regional to be called Perfecto(s), joining a 2014 release for Switzerland. That cigar was a different size, however: a 5 2/5 x 48 vitola called the Britanicas Extra.

The Ramón Allones Perfecto Edición Regional Mexico is priced at 450 pesos ($22.60) per cigar and offered in 10-count boxes, which have arrived at La Casa del Habano and Habanos Specialist retailers in the country. A total of 6,000 individually numbered boxes have been commissioned by Importadora y Exportadora Puros y Tabacos S.A. de C.V. (IEPT), the importer of Habanos S.A. products for Mexico.

This is the fifth Edición Regional for Mexico, three of which use the Edmundo Dantes brand, which is only available in Mexico: the El Conde 109 from 2007, the Conde 54 from 2011, and the Conde Belicoso from 2016. In March 2019, the distributor released its fourth Edición Regional, the Punch Duke.

Update — The original version of this story indicated the cigar’s name was Perfectos, it is Perfecto.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
