I was a bit hesitant as the larger cigars are just not my “go-to” smokes. The cigar was a delight for me to smoke and I would gladly do so again. This stick is full enough to provide a nice array of flavors but not powerful enough to make me want it done before actually reaching the end. For me, this would be a great “Christmas” smoke when in the vicinity of the kitchen with all the Holiday baking going on. " -Diana (ArmyRN)
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.
Diesel Cigars has announced a new cigar exclusive to TAA retailers called Disciple. Like all other Diesel cigars, this one is blended by AJ Fernandez and rolled at his factory Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Estelí, Nicaragua. This is a collaboration between AJ and General Cigar’s Justin Andrews. Disciple will be distributed by The Forged Cigar Company.
"This cigar was chock full of flavor and complexity that makes this one a medium to medium full bodied winner. Wouldn’t mind stocking up on a few of these to smoke in a weekly rotation. Check them out!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
"I was happy that I had this cigar as a breakfast stick. It was a consistent smoke although it never really gave me any progression or transition of flavors. This was a mindless type of cigar smoking that I sometimes like. One would have to actually be careful that they didn’t pair it with a strong coffee as it would be overpowered. Pleasant and nice to keep around for those lazy mornings when I wouldn’t want to be jolted awake by a strong or complex cigar." -Diana (ArmyRN)
"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)
"I know plenty of people that would love this cigar from beginning to end. I personally just had that little trouble with the last half of the last third and it is really hard to find a word the best describes the turmoil the only word I could come up with is bitter but that isnt a fair description of the situation. Because the profile was balanced throughout the whole experience, maybe just too full for me would be a better description." -Ryan H. (Ryan H.)
General Cigar announced a new addition to their Diesel brand, Diesel Delirium. The blend was originally used for a Cigars International exclusive in the year 2014 but now is being rolled out to their main brand in the form of a limited edition cigar, similar to the Hair of the Dog.

"This was a highly enjoyable cigar, and one that I would never turn down if given the opportunity to smoke again. The flavors might have been muddled, but very pleasing; despite having to remove a plug (which I truly believe to be a fluke) the burn and draw were darn near perfect. This was a truly quality cigar..." -Nate H. (SineQuaNon)
