Another new Edición Regional from Habanos S.A. is due in stores this month; this time it’s the Ramón Allones Hermitage, which is being made for the Russian market.
The cigar measures 5 1/2 inches (140mm) with a 52 ring gauge, a well-known robusto extra vitola that has the factory name Genios. It is a size shared with the Cohiba Genios, which is part of the brand’s Linea Maduro, as well as the H. Upmann Connossieur A, a Habanos Specialist Exclusive release from 2013.
It has also been used in a pair of Edición Regional releases, the La Gloria Cubana Belux No.1 for Belgium and Luxembourg in 2011, and the Ramón Allones Sur, which was created for Lebanon in 2014.

Each box contains 10 cigars and is priced at 21,000 rubles, or roughly US $360.71. Production numbers have not yet been confirmed, as emails to Top Cigars Corporation, the exclusive distributor of Habanos S.A. products in the country, have gone unanswered.
According to a Facebook post by the La Casa del Habano in St. Petersburg, the cigar is due to arrive in November, though no specific date was announced. The cigar got its first unveiling at a Sept. 14 event in St. Petersburg.
This will be the second Edición Regional for Russia, joining the Bolívar Emperador, a 6 1/5 x 48 grand corona released in 2011. For that production, 2,500 individually numbered boxes of 10 cigars were produced.
