Additional Information

Flavour Profile

The Diplomaticos No. 2 is arguably the mildest torpedo shaped Cigar in regular production. I find that due to the mild blend of the No. 2, I find there's plenty of spiced wood, nutmeg, cinnamon like flavours. Whilst the Montecristo No. 2 has a more stronger, robust element to it's blend that consists of that bean profile, the Diplomaticos No. 2 is a much more delicate smoke.

Price Point & General Availability

The Diplomaticos No. 2 is priced as a cheaper alternative to the more premium brands of Montecristo and Partagás. A single Diplomaticos No. 2 can be found as much as $5 cheaper than it's Montecristo counterpart.

Since Diplomaticos is a niche brand with only one vitola currently in regular production, sourcing the No. 2 can be difficult if you're restricted to the traditional brick and mortar tobacconists. However, the major online retailers should have the No. 2 in stock.

Stephen Griffiths' Reviews

Date of Review Rating
One of the more lesser well known Torpedos under general release, the Diplomaticos #2 is a light to medium bodied smoke with a delightful creaminess. A sunny yet unpredictable Saturday afternoon is the backdrop to this hour and fifteen minute smoke. Diplomáticos No. 2 Final Score:
3 out of 5
3 out of 5
