On August 15, 2015 the US has reopened it’s embassy in Cuba more than 54 years after it was closed. It is a historic step in signaling the warming of diplomatic ties between both countries. While this is a big step forward, the Cuban Embargo is still active and we are keeping a hopeful eye on what the future holds. With one eye on the past and another on the future, Cuban Diplomat is here to officially celebrate the “Cuban Thaw”.
The Cuban Diplomat is AJ Fernandez's baby. It is a cigar that took over four years of painstaking development. Top grade Nicaraguan tobaccos from Esteli and Jalapa were chosen and aged three years for the filler core. A 5-year old Ecuadorian Habano binder was chosen to keep these core filler tobaccos together and balance the flavor. Finally, a naturally-cured Ecuadorian Habano wrapper is skillfully laid on top to complete the blend. This beautiful, oily looking cigar grabs your attention from the first glance.
Tasting notes are rich and diverse. Flavors include earth, nutmeg, cedar, and pepper with lovely undertones of coffee, caramel, and the slightest hints of cocoa. Construction is superb and flavors are very well balanced. All in all, the Cuban Diplomat is a tremendous full favored cigar that brings hope to a bright future in US-Cuba relations.
