The Diesel Uncut is a full-bodied cigar crafted at Tabacalera Fernandez by the legendary A.J. Fernandez. He is known for the Man O’ War line, Rocky Patel’s Fusion, and ITC 10th Anniversary, among other stellar sticks. Crafted with Nicaraguan long-fillers and a binder from Nicaragua’s black fertile soil, the Diesel’s geographical terroir is evident along with its luscious Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper, which yields a layered, spicy-sweet, intense smoke. The construction is not only flawless but you’ll notice at the foot of the cigar the ‘uncut’ shaggy foot – hence the name. This powerhouse is complex and bold with flavors of nuts, chocolate, cedar, and black pepper that will deepen as the smoke continues. Panelists raved about the burn—no one had to touch up or relight this baby. Try it with a wheat beer.
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.
