Received a very nice package from Ravi of cigarsofhabanos.com today, a box of Diplomaticos No. 5s. The brand was discontinued last year to the dismay of many, including myself, who has found many a great cigar over the years from this under-appreciated brand. But, business is business, and when a brand only accounts for less than 0.5% of your total exports, then you know that keeping its production going is not a very good business decision. Might as well dedicate the rollers and the raw tobacco resources to other better selling brands.

So get your hands on any of the remaining boxes as soon as you can. They will not be around for very much longer.
