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 Sunday Gray Porcellino is described as full-bodied, and uses all-Habano blend made with tobaccos fermented in a “low and slow” method the company says is like the way Sunday gravy (or sauce) is cooked slowly over a low flame for a long period of time to get the taste just right.
The cigar was blended by AJ Fernandez and Justin Andrews and rolled at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Esteli, Nicaragua. The blend uses an Ecuadoran Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan Pueblo Nuevo binder, and Nicaraguan Habano fillers. Porcellino comes in just one size, a 6” x 52 toro that sells for $4.99 per cigar.
Diesel cigars are produced by Scandinavian Tobacco Group and distributed by Forged Cigar Company.
