In English the word translates as Havanas, which are widely considered to be the best cigars in the world.[/tippy] Russian lovers for tasting Ramón Allones “Hermitage”, its second regional edition.
For the first time Habanos Day in Russia was not held in Moscow. However, it was not a reason why more than 200 smokers came from several Russian cities as far away as Siberia and even from the warm Sochi. It was a luxury night, where the guests had opportunity to appreciate not only the beauty of the unmistakable Hermitage Museum from the majestic Kempinsky Hotel, but also tasting a new Habano, of the same time name.
It was a night dedicated to Ramón Allones brand, but in particular to “Hermitage”, the second Regional Edition for the Russian market. It is an excellent Habano (cepo 52 x 140 mm long), which will be an exclusivity for the Russian smoker for 2 years, presented in wooden boxes with 10 “Hermitage”. The blend of these Habanos preserves the strength that characterizes the Ramón Allones Habanos brand. It is a strong Habano, very aromatic and excellent flavour, as demand and appreciated by Russian smokers.
During the event, Topcigars rewarded the best clients of 2016 year in the categories Specialist Habanos, Habanos Point, the best new store and the best wholesale. Was also awarded the winner of the First Habano Expert Contest in Russia, done for the first time in several Russian cities in this year.
