First Third – Cocoa, coffee, spice and salted nuts start this off with a berry like tangy finish. The burn is sharp and ash fell at the 1.25 in mark. The body of the cigar is medium at this point.
Second Third – Cocoa and coffee continue into this third followed by that berry like zing. A light earthy leather note lingers on the palate on the finish. The body gets fuller here. The burn remains sharp.
Final Third – Coffee and spice pick up in this third walking you straight through to the finish. Body moves back to medium.

The Ramon Allones Heritage is a nice overall smoke. Whenever you mix cocoa, coffee and berry notes then add earth and leather you have a nice complexity and fantastic combination on the palate. Really enjoyed this one as it reminded me of a fine glass of aged American Cabernet.
