Spotlight Brand: Diesel Unholy Cocktail

October 21, 2012 |

One of AJ's finests blends.

One of A.J. Fernandez's most popular blends, Diesel exudes a ton of full flavors in a medium to full-bodied format, allowing for a stout, complex experience with perfect balance. Abdel "AJ" Fernandez is a Cuban-born cigar maker continuing three generations of tobacco mastery. Diesel exudes a unique leathery and spicy flavor with a toasty core of espresso beans. The package has a classic, rustic look while the blend is perfectly balanced and will appeal to any aficionado who appreciates premium tobacco. Boasting fillers from Nicaragua's Jalapa, Condega, and Esteli regions, each and every leaf is aged for three years, then concealed with a dark and oily Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper. This is one unique cigar you're sure to love.

Q & A: So Many Gurkhas?

Q.
Seriously, why are there so many Gurkha blends? It's my favorite brand and I can't keep up with all their releases. Why so many?

A.
​​Great question and it’s one that folks around the office often wonder themselves. It seems like everywhere you look, there’s another Gurkha blend ready for the taking. So what’s the deal? Gurkha prides themselves on being on the cutting edge. And when you travel as much as Gurkha’s president, Kaizad Hansotia, you stumble upon some new, exciting, and limited tobaccos. Like anyone of us, Kaizad is always intrigued by new and exciting tobaccos, but he can envision new blends quite easily. So for a brand that prides itself as being “small batch,” this is the perfect route to take since he has a plethora of brands that come and go from year to year. The blends are not always available regularly, but they are always unique and cutting edge. And while you may not like all of Gurkha's offerings, you always know you’re getting quality construction and the finest tobaccos available on the planet.
