Introduced in 1966, the Diplomaticos Cuban cigar brand is often compared to the popular Montecristo vitolas; the brand was originally introduced as a “less expensive” Montecristo. However, the Diplomaticos brand of Cuban cigar soon broke away from this limiting comparison due to it’s special blending of fine tobacco. Cigar connoisseurs worldwide regularly savor it’s unique, rich and flavorsome taste and now covet this fine brand. The Diplomaticos brand is another of the great Cuban brands introduced during the 1960’s. All cigars produced so far by Diplomaticos are hand made with whole leaves.
