Buy Diplomaticos Bushido Cigar Online
Buy Diplomaticos Bushido Cigar Online is a regional edition cigar from the Asia Pacific region. This Cuban cigar was produced to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the first Japanese Samurai visiting Cuba.
It features a No.109 vitola – which is famous for its tapered head. It’s rare to find a recent cigar with this vitola nowadays! This Diplomaticos Cigar comes packaged in a decorative outer box which demonstrates its Pacific routes. The ornate black shell with gold foil really enhances the Samurai-based history.
Much in keeping with the rest of the brand’s portfolio, you can expect exquisite flavours and premium quality from the Bushido.
Like many other Habanos brands, Diplomáticos has recently benefited from an update of its band. The latter, introduced in 2018, is however exclusive to regional editions. The Diplomáticos No.2 remains dressed in the original band! This new band has exactly the same logo as the old one, but the red coach is embossed and benefits from a gold filling, as do the lines around the edge. The result is a beautiful effect!
The Diplomáticos blend is similar to Montecristo, but tends to be milder. The latter seems perfectly adapted to the French market. Indeed, the French cigar culture traditionally prefers milder cigars, like the Quai d’Orsay brand, which is known for producing lighter-bodied cigars with a taste profile designed to match French products such as champagne and foie gras.
Although Diplomáticos cigars are produced on a much smaller scale than Montecristo cigars, the brand is now enjoying worldwide popularity, not least thanks to its introduction into the Edición Regional programme in 2012.
Ironically, Diplomáticos cigars are now more coveted than Montecristo cigars by discerning aficionados, due to this more confidential distribution of the brand.
The first region of the world to enjoy an exclusive cigar from the brand was Spain with the 2012 release of the Colección Privada in Edición Regional España, a Petit Robustos (50 × 102 mm) produced in only 5,000 boxes of 10 cigars. Then came one of the most coveted regional editions, the 2014 Bushido, a 109 (50 × 184 mm) in Edición Regional Asia Pacifico, produced in only 2,000 boxes of 25 cigars.
In 2015, the Netherlands welcomed an Edmundo (52 × 135 mm): El Ambajador. The same year, the brand gave birth to the Excelencia, a Robustos (50 × 124 mm) produced exclusively for Cuba.
