Mombacho Cigars S.A. announced today that they have commenced the distribution of a new line of cigars, “Diplomático By Mombacho Cigars S.A,” this marks the first time in the industry that a cigar maker has collaborated with a rum company to create a one-of-a- kind cigar experience.
The Powstanie Wojtek had a pretty simple flavor profile with not much transition, but even so, it did it well. While the price is a bit high for a cigar of this size, it provided a longer than expected smoking time, so it does provide value with the flavor delivery and smoking length. I'd be happy to smoke more of these and would have no problem recommending that others give this a try.
This may sound crazy, but I truly believe the infused releases to honor 20 years of ACID are some of the best new cigars released this year. The ACID 20 smoked great in terms of draw and burn, and when I was done smoking I was happy with the experience. There was no level of disappointment, but pure enjoyment. Consistent, well made, flavorful and fun.
The Headley Grange Chamuco incorporates the original Headley Grange blend, and is finished with a Mexican (San Andres) maduro wrapper. The stout 5 1/2" x 54 cigar is box-pressed, and like the Black Lab 2018, features a closed foot which spotlights the natural sweet nature of the Mexican wrapper upon initial ignition.
The My Father La Promesa Toro has some interesting complexity in the first third of cream, baking spices, cocoa, cedar and the trademark My Father pepper. That complexity fades moving into the second third and the experience is fairly average for the remainder of the cigar.
The Esclusivo Connecticut uses an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaragua binder and Nicaragua and Dominican filler. Esclusivo Connecticut will debut in a 6 x 52 parejo and the initial production is set to 300 Boxes of 20 cigars.
