Ramon Allones by AJ Fernandez Special Selection by General Cigar Company

COVID-19 Day 551
 A.J. Fernandez, AJ Fernandez, Ecuador, Habano Oscuro, Nicaragua, Oscuro, Ramon Allones, Robusto I think I under-appreciate attempts to mimic the Cuban Cigar Smoking experience… at least I’m beginning to think that these efforts are wasted on me.

I was looking forward to sparking this Ramon Allones by AJ Fernandez Special Selection (General Cigar Company) today, but maybe it was my mood, something I ate earlier, but this specimen just didn’t quite hit the spot… Once lit, a dry, slightly sweet cedar tobacco flavor with a spicy retrohale that goes all the way to my sinuses was had thru a perfect draw with the correct amount of resistance.

As I moved along, I didn’t experience any changes or transitions with this already “meh” cigar…

Well, with a third left (what you see in this photo to the right), I’m going to lay this down and get on to my next cigar adventure. Maybe I need to let this rest in the TupperDor a little longer and see how she develops

Until next time

Smoke time 90 minutes before I gave up.
