The Diplomaticos Bushido Cigar is a Regional Edition Cuban Cigar from the Asia Pacific area of the world. The Diplomaticos Bushido measures 7 1/4 inches by 50 Ring gauge. Its vitola is known as the ’109’, famous for its tapered head similar to that of a piramide but more rounded at the top. An almost totally forgotten Vitola amongst modern Cuban cigars.
The Bushido really is extra special because it was produced to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the first Japanese citizen visiting Cuba! The citizen was of course a Samurai (Bushido could translate to “the way of the Samurai”) and this message can be seen through the carefully crafted Cigar stick but also its outer packaging.
The Cigar itself comes packaged in a decorative outer box which demonstrates its Pacific routes. The ornate black shell with gold foil really enhances the Samurai based history.
