The brand’s vitolas are known for their similarities to those of Montecristo, especially in the aromatic panel marked by a nutty taste. These similarities are logical: from their launch, the Diplomaticos are presented as the declination in cheaper, affordable in terms of price, of Montecristo puros. In particular, each Montecristo cigar corresponds to a Diplomaticos cigar. It is therefore not surprising that we find the same calibers (modules) in both brands, but with the difference that those of Diplomaticos are offered at slightly lower prices.
Diplomaticos cigars are rolled entirely by hand in the Jose Marti factory, as are some Montecristos. In addition, all the cigars in its catalog are long-tripe. The tobacco leaves come exclusively from the Vuelta Abajo plantations, whether those used in the composition of the tripe, or those used for the sub-cape and the cape. The draw is pleasant and each puff gives rise to thick smoke. Generally speaking, these vitolas display a force ranging from a medium to a high degree. However the mixture of tobaccos used is specially studied so that the Diplomaticos cigars are sweeter than those of Montecristo. The objective of this decision is to adapt the brand’s cigars to the taste of French smokers. They are suitable for first-time smokers even if at the same time connoisseurs appreciate it.
