The Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask blend is unique in its  proprietary aging process created by AJ Fernandez  that barrel-ages the rare Brazilian Alagoas Arapiraca binder leaf in Rabbit Hole’s Pedro Ximénez Sherry barrels. The keepsake wooden whiskey barrels contain ten cigars and include a lid that is also an ashtray. Production is limited, but the company did not give specific numbers. The box will sell for a suggested retail price of $124.99 for the cigars and barrel.
