Gauntleys Mixed Cigar Sampler Packs
Hidden Cuba - Pack of 4

Sorry, this item is no longer available

This sampler pack offers up something a little different to the usual brands from Cuba, in the fact that these are the relatively unknown Cuban brands. Featuring 4 cigars from four different producers this pack is designed to broaden your horizons when it comes to Cuban cigars.

Dating from 1837, Ramon Allones, although not one of the best known Havana brands, is a favourite with many cigar connoisseurs. The arms on the box are of the Spanish royal house. Ramon Allones himself emigrated from Galicia in Spain to Cuba and was the first man to put full-colour labels on his cigar boxes. The cigars themselves are well made, relatively full-bodied, with a strong aroma (similar to Partagas, but certainly less than Bolivar).

Trinidad is named after the beautiful 16th Century city of La Santísima Trinidad (The Holy Trinity), listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, which is situated on the south coast of Cuba. Trinidad, as a Habano brand, dates back to 1969 but for many years, like Cohiba, it was made only for gifts to foreign diplomats. Not until 1998 was it released for general sale and even then only in small quantities. At the start, there was only one size of Trinidad: Fundadores. In 2003 three more sizes, the Reyes, the Coloniales and the Robusto Extra, were added to the range.

Sancho Panza is named for the rustic squire to Don Quixote in Miguel de Cervantes' 1605 novel of the same name, the name "Sancho Panza" was first used for a Havana cigar in 1848, when the Marca of "Sancho Panza" was registered by Don Emilio Ohmsted. The original factory was located at 48 Angeles St. in Havana. Sometime during the 1880s, the brand was acquired by Ramon Allones and in 1940 was purchased by the Rey Del Mundo Cigar Co. The Sancho Panza factory and its assets were nationalized by the Cuban government on September 15, 1960.

Rafael Gonzalez was created in the 1930s. It was in this brand that the 6 1/2inch (165mm) by 42 gauge cigar, which has the factory name of Cervantes, was first called a Lonsdale after Lord Lonsdale, the famous English sporting Earl and cigar aficionado of that period. Now many other brands use the name as well.
On its lid label, each box carries a curious inscription written in English to the effect that the cigars should be smoked within one month of the date of shipment from Havana or otherwise they should be carefully matured for about one year.

The four featured cigars are:

Por Larranaga Montecarlo
Sancho Panza Non-Plus
Rafael Gonzalez Perla
Ramon Allones Small Club Corona
