A lot of people have compared, if not judged this cigar to the Montecristo No.2. I felt as though this should not be the case.

 

The Diplomáticos is quite a new cuban cigar compared to all the other brands out there, Cohiba, Monty etc.. so because of this it is quite rare to see. There is only 3 vitolas in the range. The no 2. no 4 & no 5.

Length: 6.1″

Shape: Pyramid

Ring gauge:52

The Appearance –

The initial look of the cigar drew my attention first. The wrapper isn’t the best i have ever seen, lots of large veins and a rough wrapper. But mainly the worst thing was the way the cap was finished, Like they didnt care about presentation. Wish i had taken a photo to show you guys. It was all loose and was just like they threw it on.

 

Flavour –

The initial pre draw of the cigar was cold, if that makes sense and a taste of dust and mud (slightly earthy also) Once Lit, there were some hints of sweetness and chocolate but that kept coming and going throughout the smoke.

 

Value –

Recommend a Montecristo No.2 for your money to be honest. I am not saying this is a bad smoke but just would prefer to pay a little extra for a better cigar.

  1. sounds like you had a very diff smoking experience to me on this one! altho i agree if i had to choose i would go with a monte 2

  2. Honestly… I´ve a few boxes of Diplomaticos No. 2s from 1997 (and smoked 2 boxes of those) which were among the best Piramides I had… comparable to the Montecristo No. 2s Dunhill Selection from the 70s… but much better than any Montecristo No. 2 with the same age… Diplomaticos definitely need time, don´t smoke them too fresh! Which year was the cigar you smoked for the review?
