Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG), the parent company behind General Cigar, The Forged Cigar Company, and Cigars International, have announced that Justin Andrews, senior brand manager for Diesel, is getting a promotion to New Business Development Manager of their North American Branded and Rest of World divisions, effective November 1, 2021.
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.
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.
"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)
"This was a great cigar. It was mild to medium in strength which gave me some nice cream mixed with floral and chocolate flavors with a hint of nuts here and there, but mostly on the finish. I would definitely smoke this again. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
General Cigar is releasing a new Diesel for the holiday season: Whiskey Row Sherry Cask Barber Pole. The new cigar comes in only one size, a 5” x 56 double robusto. The blend uses the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper from the original cigar along with a sliver of Connecticut Shade wrapper. The packaing is a unique branded and bonded tabletop whiskey barrel.

"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)
