Diesel to Launch Vintage Series

July 2, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco

 

 

Diesel Vintage Series is a new, full-time line created to give cigar smokers the luxury of premium, aged tobaccos at an accessible price. The five-cigar, Maduro-wrapped collection ships on July 1.

Handcrafted at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Estelí, Nicaragua and developed in collaboration between AJ Fernandez and STG’s Justin Andrews, Diesel Vintage Series is a powerhouse Nicaraguan-forward smoke with deeply-aged filler tobaccos.

Justin Andrews said, “With Vintage Series, we’ve responded to feedback from our valued retailers across the country who told us they wanted to give their customers the true experience of vintage tobacco in a well-crafted, premium smoke. The catch was that it had to be at just the right price point. I’m proud to say that AJ Fernandez and I have delivered a cigar that fires on all cylinders: quality, construction, complexity and price.”

Made with a Mexican San Andreas Négro wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder from Esteli and a range of Nicaraguan Jalapa filler tobaccos ranging in age from five to eight years, the cigar balances spicy Nicaraguan notes with a hints of sweetness and leather.

  • Diesel Vintage Series Gigante Nub (4.5″ x 60); SRP per cigar $8.79
