Quai d’Orsay Robusto Diplomatico Expected in France By Year’s End


There’s a good chance that the 2015 Edición Regional for France may actually make it to retail by the end of the year, something that has become increasingly hard to say for cigars in Habanos S.A.’s regional program.

The Quai d’Orsay Robusto Diplomatico is already into production according to a representative from SEITA, Habanos S.A.’s distributor for France, so much so that they are expecting both French retailers and French duty free operators to have the cigar in December.

As for the cigar, it’s a Hermosos No.4 vitola, measuring 5 x 48, and will be sold for 12.90 euro per cigar, or 129 euro per box of 10. There are 70,000 cigars being made, split into 7,000 individually numbered boxes of 10 cigars. Approximately 15,000 of those cigars have already been produced and are currently aging.

The cigar has been on the radar since at least Aug. 2014, when a list of Habanos’ new release list for 2015 began to surface. The Cuban cigar monopoly has already released a number of those announced releases, including the Partagás Maduro No.1, H. Upmann Magnum 56 Edición Limitada 2015, Ramón Allones Club Allones EL 2015 and Montecristo Media Corona.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
