When AJ Fernandez developed the blend at hand, he instantly realized its sheer perfection. Perfect in every way....except for one – the rare materials at play could only produce a mere 1,000 boxes. This project spawned Diesel Crucible. Just 12,000 cigars were rolled, extensively aged, and are now unearthed from the aging vaults for their big debut.
Diesel Crucible utilizes a rare, extra-fermented 'Media Tiempo' wrapper leaf - the key to this cigar’s awesome flavor, but also the reason for its exceedingly limited nature. Beneath this sultry wrapper, a powerful blend of bold tobaccos awaits. Nicaraguan long-leaf ligeros mingle with a ‘secret,’ proprietary strain of long-leaf ligeros. These tobaccos marry in the aging vaults, producing an eventful smoke opening with brute-like strength and flavor. A memorable blast of spice begins the experience, while a supporting cast of chocolate and espresso soothes the senses. Each Crucible burns slow, offering additional notes of spices, earth and sweet wood. The smoke is full-bodied, but the refined smoothness and balance is uncanny, in true AJ form. The level of complexity is equally outstanding. Nay! Outstanding is an understatement, Diesel Crucible truly is a pleasure to burn.
My suggestion: Savor every last puff, but don't get too attached. Crucible will be gone in no time, but its legacy will likely remain for years to come.
