The draw was perfect from beginning to end.
The Diplomáticos Norteños Edición Regional Canadá 2018 was a great release under the brand and a terrific regional for Canada. I am typically not one to go crazy over regional releases, but I will never pass on smoking one. Sometimes they are bad, but a majority of them are solid. With that being said, sometimes they are incredible and worth buying a box or two to smoke and age. They don’t always smoke like the brand they are attached to, but that is okay. I believe that is the purpose of the regionals. Introduce something that is new and requested with a brand that is low key. I would definitely buy a box of these, smoking some now and aging the rest. I loved the flavor profile, it was always balanced and the flavors played off of one another perfectly. With that, the body and strength were on par with the cigar. The construction was stellar and I believe these will age really well. I can’t remember the last time I smoked a Diplomáticos, but with this cigar I am eager to get some more and also smoke some regular production No. 2’s.
