Hailing from Tabacalera Fernandez, Diesel Unlimited is the second member of the Diesel family and brings a full-bodied powerhouse to this popular line.
Unlimited sports a Cuban-seed ligero wrapper grown in the nutrient rich valleys of Ecuador. Several blenders have used this leaf in the past, but this is the first cigar ever created utilizing this thick, meaty leaf as a wrapper. As a result, a great deal of fermentation is required in order to achieve its balance of flavor as well as proper appearance and combustion.
The wrapper's robust and spicy nature is further enhanced by thick and hearty filler tobaccos from Nicaragua's Condega and Esteli regions along with some long leaf from Mexico's San Andres Valley, which adds a hint of sweetness to the blend. Diesel Unlimited offers a deep character with spicy tobacco notes of earth, leather and oak. On a side note, AJ Fernandez believes this is one of the best blends he has created to date.
With so many limited edition releases clogging up the sales chute these days, it’s refreshing to have a reliable, everyday cigar that is always available. Dressed in a stunning Ecuadorian habano wrapper, this gem from AJ Fernandez is my ‘go-to’ blend when I need a stogie break and might be the best damn cigar you can get.
d.5 (5.5"x54) This size stands out the most due to its amazing balance. The 54 gauge provides an effortless draw, creating thick clouds of hearty, chewy smoke while the length allows for a stead burn and a ton of complexity. Expect a punch of pepper upon first light and then a bold rush of competing earthy flavors throughout the finish. Strong, hearty and smooth. Excellent.
d.7 (7.0"x58) If you're looking for a full-bodied power bomb that'll keep you puffing for more than an hour, then go with d.7. This size is incredibly powerful as it begins full-bodied while relentlessly building in strength from head to foot. Be sure to have a full stomach before lighting up this firecracker.
d.X (5.7"x56) The most elegant of the all sizes. Light pepper graces your palate upon first light before becoming increasingly complex as the blend burns. Black pepper and earth are present throughout while the aroma gives off notes of cedar and toasted wood. Cut this torpedo's head down a bit more than usual to prevent a tight draw.
d.6 (6.0"x60) A size for those who can't get enough power. This stick releases massive amounts of smoke and with nothing else but fiery, robust characters throughout. You'll feel the strength in your gut and your head while enjoying a plethora of complex nuances ranging from toast, anise and earth to dark spices, black pepper and cedar. Burned slightly uneven.
