Diplomatico #2

From 25 dress box
Box Code: OEB MAY07
Enjoyed with unsweetened iced tea, outdoor patio, warm sunny day.

Wrapper: light tan, thin veins, nice cap, great silky looking cigar. 5/5

Construction: Dense, firm feel, no soft spots, nice box press. Good draw allows for dense smoke to fill the palate. Nice firm dark gray ash structure, even burn, just a joy to smoke. 5/5

Flavor: Spicy and earthy, rich tobacco flavors with a hint of sweet spiciness on the finish. The complexity of this cigar is amazing for its young age. It is medium to strong and will appeal to experienced palates who enjoy strong flavors. A bit of twang and some bitterness but with some age, this twang should disappear. 8/10

Final Thoughts: With some good age, this cigar should turn into a great classic. It's fantastic out of the box, and will be hard to put away for proper aging.

Final Score: 18/20
