Diesel is rolling out its third Sunday Gravy release with Rosamarino, a Nicaraguan puro.
It’s being released in a 6 x 50 toro ($4.99) and features a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan Habano Condega binder and blend of three Nicaraguan fillers from Esteli, Ometepe and Condega.
Blended by AJ Fernandez and Justin Andrews and produced at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Esteli, Rosamarino takes its name from the Italian translation of the herb rosemary. The cigar will be available starting this month.
“When AJ and I develop blends for the Sunday Gravy series, we bring our opinions to the table, and we go head to head on which tobaccos we’re going to use,” Andrews said in a statement. “Ultimately, AJ wins when it comes to delivering a bold smoke, and I get my way when it comes to delivering on balance. With Rosamarino we’ve shown how the optimal ratio of tobaccos in a blend can deliver a cigar that can appeal to a wide range of cigar smokers.”
Diesel Sunday Gravy, launched in August 2021, will release its next blend in April.
