Ramon Allones Lusitano RE Portugal 2010

In 2008 the Vegas Robaina petit robusto became the first edicion regional for Portugal and two years later, in 2010, Habanos released the next Portugese edicion regional, the Ramon Allones lusitano. Again it is a short, relatively thick cigar. The Vegas Robaina was a 4×50, and this Ramon Allones is a 4.3×52 stogie, so I guess the Portugese aficionados like their cigars short and thick.
The wrapper is quite dark for a Cuban cigar and has some even darker stripes running over it. It makes the wrapper stand out. When punching the cigar I notice that the wrapper is quite thick too. The cigar has a mild barnyard aroma. The construction feels soft. The predraw is a bit on the loose side too and I taste spicy raisin.
I taste a mild spicy coffee flavor with earthy notes and some pepper in the aftertaste. The coffee disappears almost immediately. Far on the background I can also taste some chocolate and nuts. After half an inch I taste leather with the earty flavor and the chocolate and nuts.
After a third I taste more nuts and the cigar gets a bit spicy. Halfway the chocolate gains power. The nut, leather and earth flavors are background flavors now.
This small stick provided me pleasure for an hour and five minutes. I got a lot of smoke which was reasonably thick. The ash is dark and frayed but firm. I had to correct the burn a few times. The draw was good. This cigar is medium to full flavored and medium bodied.
Would I buy this cigar again? I really should
