Diesel 10th Anniversary
To celebrate a decade of Diesel, A.J. Fernandez wanted to do something different. Doing things differently is kind of A.J.’s modus operandi, and that’s one of the reasons we love him. For the Diesel 10th Anniversary cigars, A.J. tossed out a portion of the blender’s playbook to present enthusiasts with something off the beaten path. He did this by incorporating the seldom-used Ecuador Habano Oscuro wrapper. The reason this leaf is so rarely put to use is the time it takes to ferment.
Diesel 10th Anniversary cigars start with that dark oil-ridden Ecuador Habano Oscuro wrapper. Beneath this leaf is a Nicaraguan binder surrounding rich, thick Nicaraguan Ligero. The complex flavor profile is lush and refined, bold and well-balanced. Get one burning and treat yourself to flavors of dark chocolate, earthiness, and cappuccino.
When Diesel first rolled out as a boutique brand, most smokers didn’t know the name, A.J. Fernandez. Today, it’s a struggle to keep a steady stream of sticks connected to his name on shelves. And, of course, everyone in the cigar game now knows the name A.J. It’s been a pleasure watching it all play out. Thank you for all the years of premium smoke, Mr. Fernandez!
