When Hurricane Gilbert tore through the Caribbean

quintessential Jamaican brand, Macanudo, looked like it would never recover.
Luckily for us, operations were shifted to the Dominican Republic and the rest
is history. Smooth, mellow and better than ever, the Macanudo Café Diplomat is
The Macanudo Café Diplomat is a uniquely formed 4
½” x 60 Figurado built around a core of luxurious Dominican Piloto Cubano and
Mexican filler tobaccos which are expertly placed inside a Mexican binder leaf
from San Andreas. Draped over it all is a shimmering Connecticut Shade wrapper
leaf which puts the finishing touches on a purely gratifying smoke of 45
minutes or so.
As the Macanudo Café Diplomat settles into its
mellow character, tantalizing wood and earth notes float onto the palate and
are joined by tasty dashes of nut, toast and spice. An herbal nuance mingles
with hints of sweet cream, as the mild-mannered smoke effortlessly cruises
towards a silky smooth finish.
The Macanudo Café Diplomat is the ideal candidate
for afternoon relaxations or Happy Hour gatherings, garnering votes for just
about any time or place. At once mild and flavorful, the Macanudo Café Diplomat
is a cigar that you can put your faith in each and every time you spark up.
