Diplomaticos No. 2. 2009
A 2009 box of 25. Beautiful classic rustic Cuban aroma, oily with blooms on the wrapper. Construction is less than ideal comparing to a Monte 2, but still an amazing smoke if I could hold it at least 2 more years to develop?
Smoked it cold, around 39F. Amazing floral notes, aloeswood, creamy buttery and chocolate on the palate, still vigor and stubborn. For some reason, the 2009 are much stronger and fuller than the previous years.... Could be a good sign of a come back? Finally.
