As for all Diplomaticos cigars, the construction of the Excelencia is amazing. The wrapper is shiny and has a nice brown color. The whole cigar is dense and firm.
Before lighting up
Some nice aromas of fruits and soil are emerging from the cigar, mostly around the foot of the cigar. The pre-light draw is firm.
Since the beginning the draw is firm but the burn is nice and clean. The ash has a nice grey color and holds on to the cigar for a good inch before falling off.
In the first third, the cigar starts off with plenty of woody aromas. After the few first puffs, the oak flavor is joined by many other flavors. The cigar now releases flavors of spices, with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, and nice charcoaled wood aromas. The cigar’s body is medium and the first third finishes on a nice and long wood note. A first third very typical of Diplomaticos smoking profile.
The second third continues on a fairly similar flavor profile than the first one. The flavors of sweet spices still dominate, with wood, nuts and forest closely following, in a balanced array. The flavor is unmistakably Diplomaticos.
The cigar finishes in the same way as it started, with the same flavors and a medium body. The flavors do not change while smoking in the last third, but why would you want them to? This cigar is delicious!
In summary, an easy draw and even burn. A great example of a 1st class piramide.
