The Selección Superba is the second vitola to represent the Juan Lopez brand as a UK Habanos Regional Edition. The first was in 2009 with the Selección Suprema which became a firm favourite with Habanos enthusiasts and cigar collectors. Like its predecessor, the Selección Superba once again doffs its cap to its past with an old style Juan Lopez band which has been recreated especially for this cigar. The original band that was discovered revealed that it was customary for Juan Lopez cigars to include size names on the band and there was evidence of additional embossing. Both of these features have been faithfully recreated, including the design of the Tapaclavo (label covering the nail that secures the lid) which has also been revived as a tribute to this old Habanos brand.
Measuring 57⁄8” (150mm) x 54 ring gauge, the Selección Superba are presented in dressed boxes of 10 cigars. Each box is numbered and only 6,000 boxes have been produced for exclusive sale in the UK .

Ramón Allones Grandes is just half-an-inch shorter than the regular production Gigantes, also a Corona Doble but one that measures 7 3/5 inches by a 49 ring gauge. In this particular case, the size was borrowed from the San Cristóbal El Morro, a cigar that debuted in 1999 and comes from the youngest marca in Habanos S.A.’s portfolio.
The cigar came packed in varnished 10-count boxes packed in the 8-9-8 format, though in this case it was 3-4-3.
Mr. Allones was born in Spain, in the northwestern town of Galicia, before emigrating to Cuba and setting up a factory in Havana.
The tobacco all comes from Vuelta Abajo region of Pínar del Río, the westernmost province in Cuba and home to the country’s premium tobacco farms.
