One brand that has somewhat of a resurgence due to being selected as a Regional Edition is Diplomaticos. Spain was the first country to introduce a Diplomaticos as a Regional release in 2012 with the Colleccion Privada. Since then we have seen the Excelencias, Bushido, and now the El Ambajador.
I've read a few reviews of this 2015 release for the Dutch market and they have all been extremely favourable. So when availability for a box of these cigars came available I jumped at the chance.
The vitola, Edmundo a is an excellent size and feels good in the hand. The wrappers in this box, with the box code SGA ABO 15 are silky smooth with very little veins and tooth. I haven't decided when to smoke my first from this box, I may give them a few weeks to accumulate in the Humidor before I break out the box.
If the first I smoke from the box is in my opinion around the 93/94 point Mark then a second or third box may be a possibility. Looking forward to sampling already...
Pictures of my purchase are found in the Box Purchase - February 2017 below.
