Diesel Grind Robusto

Posted by Jack | in Diesel | on 17 Aug 2017 | at 5:54 AM | 108 views

So, yeah...it's been a while since I posted a review.  I know, I know....you can only re-read my old reviews so many times before they get boring.  I am going to try to get back into the swing of things by reviewing the brick & mortar offering from the undisputed king of catalog cigars.  Diesel.  Or, more specifically, the Diesel Grind.  Let's get smoking, here.... Construction: A nice oily wrapper leaf covers this cigar. No real veins or seams to speak of.  Actually, a very nice looking cigar. Pre-light Aroma and Draw: Out of the cellophane the Grind offers up some barnyard, leather, and damp earth notes.  The draw is perfect.  Not too open and certainly not closed at all.  Just the right amount of...

Diesel Unlimited D.5

Posted by Jack | in Diesel | on 13 Jul 2013 | at 1:51 PM | 1546 views

Finally getting around to finishing my Diesel reviews.  Today's subject is the Unlimited.  In the big sampler pack I was given, this was the second selection I tried and after plowing through three of them, I decided it was time to put my thoughts to the blog.  Let me get to the review and stop blathering on.... Construction: As with all of the Diesel products, the Unlimited is flawlessly put together.  The wrapper leaf is a nice uniform red-brown with a few veins and a nice triple cap. Pre-light Aroma and Draw: Out of the cello, the Unlimited gives off plenty of cedar, oak, and leathery scents.  Despite the 54 ring girth it cuts easily and the draw is perfect. Light and Burn: I was... Continue reading »»

 


 

Diesel Hair of the Dog Toro

Posted by Jack | in Diesel | on 11 Jul 2013 | at 1:07 PM | 2488 views

According to Wikipedia, " Hair of the dog" is a colloquial expression in the English language predominantly used to refer to alcohol that is consumed with the aim of lessening the effects of a hangover. The expression originally referred to a method of treatment of a rabid dog bite by placing hair from the dog in the bite wound. My initial thought was Humphrey Bogart in The African Queen.  As Katherine Hepburn dumps his bottles of gin into the river he looks on in exasperation saying, " Oh, Miss. Oh, have pity, Miss. You don't know what you're doing Miss. I'll perish without a hair of the dog."   Seriously, if you haven't seen that movie, you must. But the subject of this blog is... Continue reading »»

 


 

Diesel Unholy Cocktail

A. J. Fernandez has come on strong in the past few years.  The young man behind such brands as Man O' War, San Lotano, La Herencia Cubana, and Emilio Cigars AF series really struck a chord with smokers in 2009, when he introduced the Diesel line through Cigars International.  I remember reading about them in a catalog back then and they certainly did pique my interest.  However, for some odd reason - planets weren't aligned, global warming, alien invasion - I never jumped on the wagon and tried them.  That is not for CI's lack of trying either.  The Diesel cigar line is scattered across nearly every sampler they offer.  Last week, during a discussion with my good friend, Bert, I told him I had...
