Many Cuban Regional Edition cigars are released each year, and at varying levels of quality, but the Diplomaticos made just for the Caribbean islands and Central America is the finest Regional Edition we’ve smoked all year. It’s also the highest score found in this issue of Cigar Insider, which includes complete vertical brand tastings of two Dominican brands: Casa Magna Liga F and Casa Cuevas Patrimonio. We also look at the new Miami-made La Palina Goldie sizes as well as two smokes made exclusively for retail members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America—one from E.P. Carrillo and the other from Villiger. Both are made in the Dominican Republic. See how these TAA exclusives performed.
