"This is a fairly short-lived cigar, easy smoking in under an hour, and probably just over a half hour smoke for most people. Each third had a distinct change of flavors that could easily be detected without looking. I found myself enjoying this one, a lot. But, it could use some glue. The tendency for the wrapper to unravel kept me distracted and, ultimately forced me to score the cigar lower than I would have liked based on flavor alone. That said, I'd give it another go in hopes that it'd stay together." -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

"I was a little concerned on the cold draw before lighting, but this cigar was really pretty good. Good flavor combinations, and lots of smoke output. It did burn a bit on the fast side, but the flavors that came throughout the smoking experience were tasty and made sense together. I would smoke this again." -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

"Overall I would say that it is an ordinary cigar that is a pleasant and easy smoke with no real wow factor. I personally like the nubs so I was slightly disappointed in this. I will try this again but may not go looking for one." -Sandeep (Djangos)

"This a wonderful cigar with just the right amount of strength. I was enticed by traditional Maduro and an overall earthiness. This is box worthy to say the least and it will not be the last time I smoke this slow burning beauty." -Jack (Jack_H)
A.J. Fernandez’s has taken over another Cuban brand, this time it's from General Cigar. He’s now producing new versions of Ramon Allones in Nicaragua.
Giannini had been with General for 17 years. In March, 2012, he was promoted to his role as creative director, which also carried the title of director of innovations. He was responsible for coming up with non-traditional cigar releases, and started the Foundry Cigar Co., a subsidiary of General dedicated to unorthodox cigars, including the signature Foundry brand. It featured cigars made from blends of tobacco he wouldn't reveal, packed in odd-shaped boxes, one of which came together in a shape reminiscent of a bundle of TNT.
