Smoked for you: Diplomaticos Coleccion Privada ER Espana 2012

Diplomaticos... a brand with a long tradition and now close to the point to disappear completely from the portfolio of Cuban cigars. Just the No. 2 is left but rumors say that it'll be (or even is) discontinued too. This makes it even more surprising that a Regional Edition has been released for Spain in the last year. It's a stick which goes with the trend... a Short Robusto. Normally it's not the size I prefer but I gave it a try because I really love the whole Diplomaticos range.

The taste is a great combination of decent sweetness on one hand and some salty notes on the other hand... Caramel, chocolate and wood... definitely all which a touch of salt... reminding a bit of a dark chocolate with Fleur de Sel... Some bitter notes during the second half but I'm not surprised about it because the sticks have been boxed about 6 months ago.
