"I ended up enjoying this cigar quite a bit which somewhat surprised me after the first third. Once the pepper spice began to recede and the rather generic coffee note was the only prominent flavor remaining, I began to lose interest UNTIL things turned around for the better and some new notes quickly presented themselves. When you factor in those enjoyable flavors with the overall great construction, I would smoke this cigar again." -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)

"This was a great cigar! I really enjoyed the 1st third the best, but the rest was a very enjoyable experience as well. I got a lot of sweetness when the lighter wrapper showed up with floral and vegetal notes. When the darker wrapper came around I was picking up nuts, bread, spice, and cinnamon. This was a great cigar. The size was perfect as well.....what is this, and do I have room for a box???" -Mickey T. (irratebass)
"What an excellent cigar! Three district flavor profiles and a nicely increasing strength have me wanting to buy these right now. This is as close to a perfect cigar as I’ve had in years...a real winner!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
What you call the red stuff you put on top of you pasta is probably either Sauce or Gravy. This is a hotly debated topic still to this day and has been for decades. Now Diesel is making a cigar to throw their hat in the ring for Gravy, Sunday Gravy to be exact.
"This enjoyable cigar featured great construction from start to finish. While there was not a great deal of complexity present, the transitions in both strength and dominant flavors (especially in the second third) were quite enjoyable. While I wish the creaminess had stuck around longer, the bold cedar and mostly consistent spice danced very well together throughout the smoking experience." -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
