Diplomaticos No.2 25p
A veiny torpedo with a firm draw, slightly box-pressed whose first puffs impart warm, toasty flavours that become sweet with vanilla and almond notes. A touch of coffee emerges on the finish.
When most people think of Cuba’s great torpedo, or piramide, they think of the Montecristo No. 2. It is Cuba’s best-selling figurado, with about 2 million produced each year. Most are made in the key factories in Havana such as H. Upmann, La Corona and Partagas, and only the best cigarmakers on the island are qualified to roll these 6 1/8 inch by 52 ring torpedos. However, a small production of the same cigar with a slightly lighter blend has long been produced almost exclusively at H. Upmann under the name Diplomaticos.

Diplomáticos is a comparatively recent brand dating from the 1960’s. It bears a marked resemblance to Montecristo, using numbers not names to describe its sizes.
All sizes are Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano – long filler, totally hand made – using a blend of filler and binder tobaccos from the Vuelta Abajo zone.
