Diplomaticos No.2 - 25 cigars [6.1 x 52]
When connoisseurs look for Piramides, the Diplomaticos No.2 always shows up in the top of the list.
- • One of the reasons is that no matter which batch or year of production, the smoking experience is the same. The flavors are always consistent.
- • The flavors are strong and clear when smoked right out of the box. But the flavors get more profound and rich when aged.
Delicate aroma coupled with the flavors of wood and spice.

As for all Diplomaticos cigars, the construction of the No.2 is amazing. The wrapper is shiny and has a nice brown color. The whole cigar is dense and firm.
Before lighting up
Some nice aromas of fruits and soil are emerging from the cigar, mostly around the foot of the cigar. The pre-light draw is firm.
Since the beginning the draw is firm but the burn is nice and clean. The ash has a nice grey color and holds on to the cigar for a good inch before falling off.
In the first third, the cigar starts off with plenty of woody aromas. After the few first puffs, the oak flavor is joined by many other flavors. The cigar now releases flavors of spices, with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, and nice charcoaled wood aromas. The cigar’s body is medium and the first third finishes on a nice and long wood note. A first third very typical of Diplomaticos smoking profile.
The second third continues on a fairly similar flavor profile than the first one. The flavors of sweet spices still dominate, with wood, nuts and forest closely following, in a balanced array. The flavor is unmistakably Diplomaticos.
The cigar finishes in the same way as it started, with the same flavors and a medium body. The flavors do not change while smoking in the last third, but why would you want them to? This cigar is delicious!
In summary, an easy draw and even burn. A great example of a 1st class piramide.

- They call him the Montecristo 2's brother because they're made in the same factory. Lots of cocoa, dry fruits, leather and wood. A very good one and not that easy to find!
- Well they finally arrived with the great help of Ken these beauties were well worth waiting for nice dark oily wrapper this cigar has plenty of thick smoke and right up there with the Montecristo #2 and I must say they were worth the wait thanks again Ken you were wonderful and the service from you was impeccable.
- one of my favorites, arrived in 1 week, wrapper were dark and oily
- Simply an incredible cigar with consistent depth of flavour from start to finish. Almost unbeatable value for money. Rich luscious smoke rolls over your tongue each draw, but never becomes too much - and I smoke quite aggressively. I would be content if my humidor only contained these as my daily smoke!
A great Torpedo!
These cigars are, unfortunately, very hard to come by. It is with a great pleasure to report that I managed to get my hands on a box stamped July 2013 last month. The stogies were immaculate and with a wonderful sheen of oil.
The evolution was up to par and nicely paced from wood and spices in the first third to cinnamon, cocoa and sweet tobacco to the final third.
IMHO, with 3-5 years of age, they will come to their own and be truly masterpieces to enjoy after long Sunday brunches or heavy dinners.
An excellent smoke now and to improve greatly with correct aging.
