A bark as good as its bite.
AJ Fernandez is a madman, and he never has a dog day. Everything that comes out of his factory is top-notch, and so is the facility itself. The Diesel line is a great example: it’s one of CI Nation’s die-hard favorite brands for a reason. Our customers can’t get enough of the bold, complex flavors and striking packaging, and Diesel has upped the ante with their latest release from AJ’s factory in Nicaragua.
Resting on its haunches and ready to pounce is a new, limited edition single-size release by Diesel called Hair of the Dog. Don’t let the name fool you, this cigar is anything but cute & cuddly. Inside a glistening Ecuador Habano wrapper and Ecuador Sumatra binder is a feisty blend of Nicaraguan Habano fillers, creating a profile that’s anything but tame but certainly not vicious. Full-flavored and medium-full bodied, the Hair of the Dog is a feat of tobacco blending prowess. A hearty dose of pepper, spice, and leather charges across your palate in perfect balance, with an excellent draw and burn throughout. Just don’t expect this stick to serve as your guard dog, because anyone who smells it will likely move a bit closer!
Good news! The Diesel Hair of the Dog LE has received a 90-point rating, noting: "This box-pressed cigar is draped in an attractive, chocolate-brown wrapper that feels smooth to the touch. Its lush draw delivers soft notes of wood and tea interspersed with sweeter hints of toffee and milk chocolate."
