Diesel has announced their first TAA-exclusive cigar: Disciple. Blended by AJ Fernandez, handcrafted at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Estelí, Nicaragua and developed in collaboration between AJ and General Cigar’s Justin Andrews, Diesel Disciple is a robust and balanced cigar, blended in AJ’s signature style.
The blend is made with a Mexican San Andrean wrapper, an Ecuadoran Sumatra binder and its filler is exclusively comprised of Nicaraguan Habano from Esteli.
Justin Andrews said, “Diesel Disciple is the first Lancero that AJ and I worked on together and it also marks the first exclusive offering for Diesel. That would have been exciting on its own. But when you look at where we started with Diesel as an internet/catalogue brand and how we built the brand in partnership with retailers, you’ll see why it’s big news that Diesel Disciple is part of TAA. To make a cigar for the top 80 retailers in the country shows that Diesel is a true retail brand and it speaks to our ongoing commitment to the brick and mortar community.”
Available exclusively for TAA members, Diesel Disciple comes in a Lancero (7” x 38) and will sell at retail for an SRP of $8.99 per cigar or $89.90 per ten-count box. Diesel Disciple will be available at retail this July and will be sold through The Forged Cigar Company.
