Mombacho Cigars 2019 IPCPR




Mombacho cigars debuted it’s latest release at the 2019 IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas NV.

The Diplomático was on display at the Mombacho booth, however we got to see it a day before the show opened at the Mombacho press party at the Nomad Hotel near the Vegas City Center.

I spoke with master blender Claudio Sgroi and we chatted briely about the project “When I started to blend the Diplomático cigar the only thing I had on my mind was the character and flavor profile of Diplomático Rum.

I made a blend extremely deep in flavor as Diplomático is not meant to be a cigar that goes well with a rum, it is a cigar that was born to be paired with Diplomático”. 




Diplomático Blend and Size Specs:

  • Robusto: 5 x 50
  • Petit Corona: 4 1/2 x 44
  • Toro: 6 x 52
  • Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
  • Binder: Nicaragua
  • Filler: Nicaragua




Cosecha 2014 was also on display at the booth.

“True vintage is almost impossible to find in the cigar industry and we have created a cigar that showcases the best of Nicaraguan tobaccos with Cosecha.

Cosecha 2012 was great and Cosecha 2013 was even better, Cosecha 2014 will surprise the aficionados once again.”

said Claudio Sgroi, President and Master Blender of Mombacho Cigars.

The cigars have been in the aging room at Casa Favilli, Mombacho’s state-of-the-art factory in Granada, since early 2016.

Currently, Cosecha 2015 cigars have already been rolled and are resting in the aging room at Casa Favilli and Cosecha 2017 will be soon in production until ready for distribution in 2022.

Cosecha 2014 is a 6 x 52 toro with a pigtail cap and is available in 10-count boxes with an MSRP of $21.95 per cigar.

A total of 750 boxes were produced
