Diplomático By Mombacho Cigars S.A, the cigar project done with Mombacho Cigars at Diplomático Rum, has commenced distribution.
“It is a tremendous honor for Mombacho Cigars to be the cigar maker for this very special project. A world-class rum like Diplomático is the perfect spirit to pair with a memorable cigar, and today we make history by making this possible!” said Claudio Sgroi, President and Master Blender of Mombacho Cigars in a press release. “Inspired by the profile and character of Diplomático Rum’s aromas and balance, I made a unique cigar blend. The cigars are not only meant to go well with the rum, they are made because of the rum,” added Sgroi.
“We are excited to partner with Mombacho Cigars, a cigar company whose ideals for making high-quality products with passion reflects our own philosophy for creating award-winning rums,” added Nino Curbelo, Diplomático Export Director in North America. “Together, our brands seek to not only elevate the pairing of a fine cigar and rum, but to create a new, one-of-a-kind experience. Additionally, we are very proud to donate a percentage of proceeds to the “I Love Venezuela Foundation,” a non-profit organization making a huge difference for the people of Venezuela.”
Diplomático By Mombacho Cigars S.A. is also the first cigar in the Mombacho portfolio to feature an Ecuadorian Habanos wrapper. The remainder of the blend is Nicaraguan and features binder and filler from the regions of Jalapa, Condega and Estelí. The cigars are available in three sizes: Toro ($14.95), Robusto ($12.95), and Petit Corona ($9.95) – with each packaged in 10-count boxes.
Mombacho says the cigars will be available in the U.S. at cigar shops, cigar lounges, and selected liquor stores.
In addition, Mombacho will donate a percentage of sales to the Nicaraguan no-profit organization Carita Felíz Kinder based in Granada to help children in need. Concurrently, Diplomático Rum will be donating to I Love Venezuela Foundation, a non-profit organization raising awareness about social issues in Venezuela.
