Diesel Releases Whiskey Row
Diesel is celebrating the holidays with a twist on its Whiskey Row Sherry Cask blend. The barber-pole wrapped cigar comes in a 5 x 56 Gordo and is packed in a branded tabletop whiskey barrel.
The cigar uses a mix of a Connecticut Broadleaf and a Connecticut Shade wrapper. The blend was developed by Diesel Senior Brand Manager Justin Andrews, blended by AJ Fernandez and rolled at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Estelí.
Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask uses an aging process developed by AJ to deepen the complexity of the blend by barrel-aging the Brazilian Alagoas Arapiraca binder leaf in Pedro Ximénez Sherry barrels overseen by Louisville, Kentucky-based Rabbit Hole Distillery. This process brings out subtle notes of honey, vanilla and molasses.
The cigars are presented in a keepsake wooden whiskey barrel that holds ten cigars and includes a lid that doubles as an ashtray. The Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask is a limited production and sells for a suggested retail price of $124.99 for the cigars and barrel.
The original Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask launched in 2019 and made the Cigar Snob list of the top 25 cigars last year.
