The penultimate release in the Diesel Sunday Gravy Series will arrive next month while the final cigar in the six-part series is expected this October.
That next release will the Diesel Sunday Gravy Grappa, a 5 x 56 robusto extra that uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Honduras. Like the rest of the series, it is named after Italian-American cuisine—grappa is an Italian spirit made with the leftover grapes from winemaking—and it is priced at $4.99 and will come in packs of five.
“Diesel Sunday Gravy Grappa, like our previous Sunday Gravy expressions definitely packs a punch,” said Justin Andrews, new business development manager for Scandinavian Tobacco Group’s (STG) North American Branded and Rest of World divisions, in a press release. “It’s a great, medium-plus blend, handmade with premium tobaccos. And given its affordable price, Diesel Sunday Gravy Grappa is a cigar that’s meant to be smoked with good friends during spirited discussions.”
Previous Sunday Gravy releases have been San Marzano, Pecorino, Gabagool and Rosamarino. Like the rest of the releases, Grappa is made at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A. and distributed by STG’s Forged Cigar Co.
Diesel Sunday Gravy Grappa will head to stores in July. The company has said that the sixth and final Diesel Sunday Gravy cigars will be released in October.
