STG, parent company of General Cigar and Cigars International, has announced a slew of holiday items for the 2022 season. Releases include a CAO advent calendars, Diesel Sideshow, and special 4 packs from Punch and El Rey del Mundo.
The last in Diesel's Sunday Gravy series will be released October 3, Porcellino. The name comes from an iconic Florentine fountain called Il Porcellino. The name translates to “little pig,” yet the bronze sculpture is of a female wild boar which is said to bring good fortune and a sure return to Florence.
Diesel is launching a third blend in the Sunday Gravy line - Rosamarino. Diesel Sunday Gravy Rosamarino is a Nicaraguan puro that follows the two previous Sunday Gravy blends, San Marzano and Pecorino. Diesel Sunday Gravy launched in August 2021 as a full-time line of seasonally-released, Nicaraguan-forward smokes, blended and handcrafted through the partnership of AJ Fernandez and Justin Andrews. Blends will be released quarterly, sold until their limited supply is deleted and offered at an MSRP of less than $5.00 per cigar.
"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)
Atonement is the latest collaboration between AJ Fernandez and STG's Justin Andrews, this time once again on the Diesel brand. The latest release is called Diesel Atonement and is described as an "unapologetically-bold, limited-edition." The cigar is exclusive to retail TAA members.
Diesel (General Cigar) has announced a new series of cigar that will come in three parts, Fool's Errand. The first of these three limited edition projects is scheduled to ship April 1, 2022. The new series is described as blending storytelling, interactivity, and cigar mastery in one.
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.
