Tobacco Thursday – Diesel Corona Maduro


The Diesel line is a new joint from AJ Fernandez – one of the protégés of Don Alejandro Robaina.

The Diesel Corona Maduro came on sale to Cocktails, 365 with strong recommendations from fellow smokers.

Diesel Corona Maduro

Diesel Corona Maduro

Size: 5 x 42

Wrapper: Pennsylvania Broadleaf

Body: Medium to Full

Filler: Nicaragua

Cost: $89.95 for a tin of 30 ($2.86 per cigar) (via cigar.com)

Scent: Leathery and oily. Dark.

First Light: Dark and oily, but a clean, tight draw.

Halfway Through: The tastes becomes a bit harsher with a fuller body experience. A bit of carbon, but not enough to detract from the smoke.

Final Third: Mellows out again on the last bit. While the flavor is much heavier, it has a pleasant spice and you lose the carbon that was in the middle.

Verdict: It can be a bitch to track these down in individual sticks, so you’ll most likely be looking for these in a tin, box, or bundle. If you do, make sure you’re okay with a darker smoke, because you don’t want to drop the nigh-on $100 for a box you won’t enjoy. Very nice in our opinion though. The corona is just the right size, too.
