For years, Diesel has been the go-to cigar for enthusiasts who seek big and bold flavors with perfect balance. These cigars are crafted by AJ Fernandez in Nicaragua, and when he was approached about crafting a cigar with tobaccos aged in bourbon barrels, he was apprehensive at first. However, when he realized how much flavor the tobaccos took on during the process, he was all in and there was no turning back.
Diesel Whiskey Row was made in conjunction with craft distiller Rabbit Hole, as the Mexican San Andres binder is aged inside bourbon barrels and then blended with Nicaraguan long fillers from Ometepe, Jalapa, and Condega, and the blend is then wrapped with an Ecuador Habano leaf.
The end result - a cigar with pronounced notes of oak, a slight smokiness, some spice, and a bit of sweetness. While a cigar of this nature is a first for AJ, you can be sure it fits perfectly in line with the rest of Diesel’s incredible cigars and will not disappoint.
