The latest Diesel cigar aims to offer cigar hobbyists an affordable yet well-aged smoking experience, with Justin Andrews and A.J. Fernández coming together to create the Diesel Vintage Series.

Rolled out of Fernández’s Estelí-based factory, the Diesel Vintage Series begins with a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper; this leaf surrounds a Nicaraguan (Estelí) binder and all-Nicaraguan fillers from the Jalapa growing region, which have been aged from five to eight years each.

Justin Andrews said, “With Vintage Series, we’ve responded to feedback from our valued retailers across the country who told us they wanted to give their customers the true experience of vintage tobacco in a well-crafted, premium smoke. The catch was that it had to be at just the right price point. I’m proud to say that AJ Fernandez and I have delivered a cigar that fires on all cylinders: quality, construction, complexity and price.”

The cigars began shipping on July 1st, being packaged in boxes of 20 cigars (with the exception of the Rabito size) and priced between $7.99 and $9.29 per cigar MSRP.
