Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask
This time casks originally filled with 30-year Pedro Ximénez sherry, which Rabbit Hole used to create their PX Sherry Finish Bourbon shipped to A.J. Fernandez’s factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
Next, experts place the Arapiraca binder leaves from Central Brazil’s Alagoas region in the sherry casks, also used as bourbon barrels, and the aging process begins. They control the air within these casks to ensure the sherry flavors distribute evenly among the binders. Diesel stated that the project's goal is to provide cigar and spirits lovers a deeper sensory experience.
The blend used in Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask cigars showcases Nicaraguan-aged tobaccos from three continents and a dark Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. But it’s the Brazilian Arapiraca binder aged in thirty-year-old Rabbit Hole Sherry Cask bourbon barrels, which is the real show stopper. The flavor notes are indeed a result, in part, of the sherry casks, though their impact is never overwhelming. Once you light up, you’ll be in another world of flavor, including chocolate, dark fruit, and pepper.
Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask cigars received a well-deserved 91 rating from Cigar Aficionado. Brands that push traditional cigar-making boundaries without crossing the gimmick line should always be rewarded for their courage to go against the grain.
