Wrapper: Mexican San Andres
Binder: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Cigar Strength: Full-Bodied
From the minds of A. J. Fernandez and Justin Andrews and hand-crafted in Esteli, Nicaragua, Diesel Disciple is a robust beast made to stand out.
This bold blend grabs your attention with a dark, lustrous Mexican San Andres wrapper, but the real treat begins underneath. A meticulous mix of Ecuadorian Sumatra and Nicaraguan Habano, Viso and Ligero tobaccos add an unexpected layer of sweetness to the distinct notes of earth, pepper, and oak.
In the past, going back, I always thought of Diesel as a crappy cigar manufactured for big-box distributors. Since around 2018, Diesel has really upped their game with the Whiskey Row, Sherry Cask and one of my favorites, the Estelí Puro. The recent Diesel Limited-Editions have also been outstanding.
Simply put, Diesel Disciple is for the true followers of masterfully blended cigars. If you have stayed away in the past, you should give Diesel another look. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
