Diesel Crucible Limited Edition Toro
The Diesel Crucible cigar is the third installment in the "Elixir" trilogy, which started with Hair of the Dog, progressed into Delirium as a second offering, and is now culminating with this powerful tobacco mix.
This blend was made in collaboration with A.J. Fernandez and was produced at his factory in Esteli, where so many fantastic cigars have been conceived and rolled up for our enjoyment. This time around, we're not getting a Nicaraguan puro, as A.J. reached into Honduras for some of the long-filler tobacco and ordered up the wrapper from Ecuador. It's a classic Habano seed leaf grown in Ecuador's perfect partial cloudy shade, and it brings flavors that we've all been loving for decades.
The limited-edition Diesel Crucible cigar is offered in a pretty snappy box, too. That is, the box has a snap strap on it. Pop it open and you'll see ten tasty toros (6 x 50) lined up in rows. If you've been smoking the other blends in the series, this is definitely a strong finish to a potent line of cigars.
Our lighters are itching just thinking of it (and smelling that lush wrapper aroma).
Light up the foot and you'll see just how full-bodied the Diesel Crucible cigar really is. It's got red pepper, spice, and leather that bring together some of the best notes you can get using sophisticated blending methods. As we said above, we're out of A.J.'s usual Nicaraguan puro style and into some very rich and complex tobaccos. Taken together, you're getting a flavor profile that is satisfying and that has layers of intriguing notes. You really won't want to put this one down once you get it going, and it could well be the best of the whole Elixir series for some folks.
The tobacco is well-aged, but we don't expect this one to rest on our shelves for a single minute, really. If you're interested in Diesel Crucible cigars, get yours ASAP. Limited edition blends like this just get grabbed up way too fast to wait. We know because our grubby mitts were the first ones into the crate!
