The original cigar that started it all for Diesel. Handmade in Estelí, Nicaragua, this smoke is blended by the one and only legendary AJ Fernandez and is one of his most popular blends. The Diesel in your shipment today utilizes a superb array of Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos from the Jalapa, Condega, and Esteli regions, along with a Nicaraguan binder, and a thick and oily Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper leaf. Medium to full in body, once lit you’ll find leathery notes of spice, tobacco sweetness, and dark earth. Complex and spicy to the nub, pair this smoke with a Café Cubano.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
