The third Diesel Sunday Gravy release is arriving at stores.
Forged Cigar Co. has begun shipping the Diesel Sunday Gravy Rosamarino, a 6 x 50 toro that has an MSRP of $4.99. Like the previous two Sunday Gravy releases, it is made at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A. For this cigar, the factory is using only Nicaraguan tobaccos including a habano wrapper, a habano binder from Condega, and fillers from Condega, Estelí and Ometepe.
“When AJ and I develop blends for the Sunday Gravy series, we bring our opinions to the table, and we go head to head on which tobaccos we’re going to use,” said Justin Andrews, new business development manager of STG North American Branded and Rest of World divisions, in a press release. “Ultimately, AJ wins when it comes to delivering a bold smoke, and I get my way when it comes to delivering on balance. With Rosamarino we’ve shown how the optimal ratio of tobaccos in a blend can deliver a cigar that can appeal to a wide range of cigar smokers.”
This is the third release for the line, each inspired by Italian-American cooking. All three have been priced around $5.
Forged promotes Diesel Sunday Gravy as a seasonal release. The Rosamarino will be available for retailers to purchase between now and April, or until the cigar sells out. The company says a new Sunday Gravy release will be announced in April.
