Mombacho Cigars S.A. announces the distribution of a new line of cigars. It is born from the collaboration with the well-known Venezuelan distillery Destilería Unidas S.A, better known as “Diplomático”, thus giving life to the Diplomático By Mombacho cigars.
Claudio Sgroi, president and master blender of Mombacho, declares that “Diplomático By Mombacho cigars draw their inspiration from the balance, the aromas and the character of the homonymous rum. The cigars are not only meant to be paired with it, but made thanks to the rum”.
Nino Curbelo, Director of Exports in North America states “the partnership with Mombacho allows us to create a unique experience in the association of a good cigar and a rum”.
The new cigars are made up of an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, while binder and filler come from the regions of Jalapa, Condega and Estelí.
