I never tried this cigar before but I decided to order a box as belicosos is my favourite vitola at the moment. And (for a change) I was right! New Cuban quality control enables production of very complex cigars with all traditional characteristics of pre 1997 madness. One of them is this RA Belicoso, unfortunately available only in few countries (EMS). Well matured tobacco, good (but not perfect) construction and smooth draw are characteristic of this cigar. Some of my friends describe this cigar as strong and powerful but in my opinion strength is on medium side and is more complex and well balanced than for example RA Specially Selected. Only at the very end became more powerful and rough but this was never prevailing. I decided to drink Australian wine from Tasmania but cigar was so nicely rounded that I changed it with well matured Bordeaux and at the end I mellow it down with a glass of cognac. I canít remember when I had such a nice Ramon Allones in my hands. For sure I will try to get few more boxes because I donít know if there are any plans to include it to regular production.
