The Diesel Disciple, a 7 x 38 lancero that was released in June 2021 as an exclusive release for members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America, is now a full-production, widespread release that all retailers can order.
The cigar features a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and a Nicaraguan habano filler grown in Estelí, a combination that Forged Cigar Co. says gives the medium-full blend an unexpected layer of sweetness that plays against the cigar’s bold and peppery notes.
Pricing remains at $8.99 per cigar and it is offered in 10-count boxes. The line is produced by Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A.
“When we launched Disciple in 2021 as a TAA exclusive, the smokes sold out very quickly,” said Justin Andrews, new business development manager of Scandinavian Tobacco Group’s (STG) North American Branded and Rest of World divisions, via a press release. “So we decided to make it a full-time addition to the Diesel lineup. Disciple speaks to how strongly the brick and mortar community has embraced the Diesel brand, and it’s a great example of just how much the cigar community values what we’re doing from a blend and packaging perspective.”
The cigar is distributed by Forged Cigar Co.
