Something wicked this way comes… The Diesel Wicked is back. Having one of the best reputations in the business, Diesel cigars continue to impress. The Diesel Wicked is hand rolled in Nicaragua and is produced in extremely limited quantities due to the rare tobaccos that are used, including the jaw-dropping, dark, thick, oily, and dazzling broadleaf maduro ligero wrappers from Pennsylvania. Underneath is a hand selected top-priming Habano binder from Estelí, Nicaragua that secures a bevy of pitch-black, long-leaf ligeros cultivated from the rich, volcanic soils of Nicaragua’s top growing regions. Wickedly full-bodied, this powerhouse has rich and bold flavors of oak, leather, dark tobacco, roasted espresso bean, black pepper, and red pepper. Mischievous to the core, enjoy it as an after-dinner smoke with your favorite full-bodied red wine and remember… open locks, whoever knocks…
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.
