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.
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.
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.
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.
