In honor of its 10th year in business, what does a trend-setter of a brand do? Why, create a taste-maker of a blend, of course. Always pushing the envelope, they deliver the goods in every which way. With their limited-production 10th Anniversary release, AJ Fernandez & Diesel have done it again, and they've named it Diesel d.10th!
Forged in AJ's world-famous cigar factory in Estelí, d.10th is draped by a dark, oily Ecuador Habano Oscuro wrapper. Seldom used in the industry due to the time the leaf takes to properly ferment, AJ was hell-bent on using it above any other option as he felt the Oscuro captured the Diesel character best. While some were concerned, they were reminded this release honors 10 years of going the long way, on the opposite side, over the limit, and past the horizon. Indeed, for a decade, Diesel's been doing things the hard way, so what's a little more time this far down the line?
With a recipe of Nicaraguan long-fillers beneath the aforementioned Habano leaf, d.10th commences to be every bit as full-bodied and bold as any other offering Diesel has sold. Prep your palate for a priming of pepper up front, subsiding slightly as it proceeds to produce plenty of smooth chocolate, coffee, fruit and la hint of licorise on the long finish. While it does settle down a bit, the spice stays throughout the last third down to the nub. A tremendous way to celebrate Diesel’s decade of delivering the boldest NIcaraguan blends at the most reasonable prices on the market!
