If one wishes to enjoy true quality and a worthy smoke, there is no doubt that Cuban brands such as Cohiba and Cuaba are among a few of the best that the country has to offer. For those who wish to enjoy premium cigars may wish to choose Montecristo, but they are usually pretty heavy on the pocket and so the best alternative to that would be Diplomaticos cigars.

These cigars have a rich, smooth, and mild, medium, to full flavour. The sizes of these cigars range from 4 inches to 7.6 inches with varying thicknesses, serving the need of various cigar smokers, from quick smokers who wish to just take in the flavours and slight aroma to slow smokers who wish to have a leisurely smoke along with enjoying heady aromas and flavours.

The Diplomaticos is a Cuban brand which was introduced in 1966. It is the same year in which the brand Cohiba was set up by Fidel Castro but not introduced and released to the public until 1982. Cohiba was a very exclusive brand which was only available to the man behind these cigars, Fidel Castro, very high ranked officials, the cigar rollers who made the cigars, and the very lucky ambassadors, diplomats, and dignitaries who were given these cigars as a present on their visits. This restricted access to high quality cigars for ordinary people and cigar lovers who wished to smoke these cigars. The proper brand which came out after the revolution in Cuba was the Diplomaticos. It was introduced, as mentioned before, in 1966 and there is no surprise that it originated in the Pinar del Rio province of Cuba. This province is known for its lush tobacco fields and high quality tobacco production. The tobacco leaves are picked from the top of the plant so that the ripest and best tobacco is used in the manufacturing of these cigars. The factory in which these cigars were produced is the Jose Marti Factory and these cigars dont have a very massive share in the local market. The future doesnt seem too bright for Diplomaticos since only one line of the original brand is still being produced. This was the first brand that was available to the public after the revolution. It produced very high quality cigars. Montecristo cigars have a very smooth and rich flavour and these cigars were introduced as an alternative to them since they were very expensive. These cigars had the same quality but were available at much cheaper prices. These werent very strong cigars because they were meant to be exports to the French cigar market. The Diplomaticos are also similar to Montecristo in that they introduced the five sizes that corresponded to the sizes of Montecristo cigars. All these cigars were hand-made. When the brand was introduced, it brought forward five different sizes which were similar to the sizes of Montecristo cigars. Apart from the normal collection of cigars, Montecristo had a line with cigars Especial No.1 and Especial No. 2. In order to adopt those sizes and qualities, Diplomaticos introduced Diplomaticos No. 6 and No. 7 in 1976, but these cigars were discontinued in the 1980s. Currently, Diplomaticos No.2 is the only line of cigars that is still available. These cigars are available in a range of sizes, and thicknesses. Diplomaticos No.1 and No.3 are similar in thickness with a ring size of 42 and are 6.5 and 5.6 inches long respectively. No.2 is a longer and thicker cigar, being 6.1 inches in length and having a ring size of 52, with a thick gauge. These cigars are probably for those who enjoy a heavy and long leisurely smoke. No.4 and No.5 are both medium in thickness and have a ring gauge of 42 and 40 respectively.
