Cuban Diplomat by Cubanacan Toro (6x52 / Box 20)

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

    This is a great cigar and would have received 5 stars but it’s a bit dry on the finish. Don’t know how long these have been aging but the cellophane is a beautiful dark brown Good smoke

    Received one of these as a surprise freebie with my order. and the cello was very yellow, yum! I ordered a box the day after I smoked it. Great price point. Well constructed, lots of smoke. Medium strength and very smooth through the second third. What's not to love?!

    Yes, A Very Nice Smoke

    Posted by K-Bez on 16th Mar 2017

    Having had good luck with Cigar King house brands in the past, I took a chance on a box of these cold -- not having tried one first, which I almost never do. I am glad I did. So far, I have had six from the box. They are very well made and smoke well with no draw issues and a nice white ash. Total smoke time is about ninety minutes. They are very well-balanced, and since I experience cigar flavors in terms of other cigars, I would say that these have a hint of what makes the Herrera Esteli Nortenos so tasty. But they have their own pleasant flavor profile. They are a great value at the box sale price. I'll put it this way: I will be ordering another box very soon. I have noticed one small issue; however, two of the last three I have smoked cracked just a bit when I clip the cap, and it's not my cutters. So I have taken to using a hole punch on them, and that works great.

    Very Good Cigar

    Posted by CWS on 3rd Feb 2017

    To open with I am a big fan of most Cubanacan cigars. I find these tasty alternatives in my rotation. At one point I purchased a few boxes and the fine folks at Cigar King threw in a taster pack including a cuban diplomat. I must admit it sat for a while in my cupboard humidor with the loose sticks as I did not recognize the label and rarely try a blind cigar without some sort of back up information. One day I pulled this stick out out of the singles with a silver label to smoke while watching football wit the guys. Very nice looking cigar with an oily exterior. Dark brow sheen but not quite maduro looking. Triple cap and a closed or semi-closed foot. It smelled wonderful deep tobacco barnyard wonderful. I clipped it and first noticed the semi closed foot when trying a pre-light draw. Pre-light was deep tobacco and a bit of sweetness. I lit up and the draw was very good medium not to tight and not loose. I hate a loose draw. The cigar opened with a burst of flavor that truly is reminiscent of some of the cuban cigars I have smoked. I tasted a light blast of white pepper, earth, some almond, and a slight cedar all with a little sweetness. The cigar built in flavor and strength as I smoked but I did not detect much change other than the pepper backed off. The burn was excellent with no touch ups and I smoked this puppy to the nub. When done I had to chase down what the heck I just smoked so I could buy more. It took a magnifying glass for these old eyes to find the cuban diplomat words on the wrapper. Now I remember. Wasn't there a cigar made for Cigar King by Pepin Garcia in early 2000 by the same name? Is this new up start as good? I dug through my boxes looking in vain for one of the originals so I could do a comparison. I found some original Havana Soul and Habana Leon buy alas no Cuban Diplomats. I guess I will just have to stock up on these new ones as I am sure they will age well ( if I can only let them). Highly recommended
