A new limited edition cigar will be added to the Diesel portfolio in the coming months, dubbed Hair of the Dog.
Justin Andrews, the global brand manager for Diesel Cigars, showed off the new cigar recently on Instagram. He told halfwheel that while there are a number of details still to be finalized before its release, it will be a single vitola limited edition produced at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A.
The Diesel brand has its roots in online and catalog sales, but in 2017 the brand crossed over into brick and mortar retailers via an updated Diesel Grind, which is sold by General Cigar Co., a sister company to the prominent retailer Cigars International, where the brand was initially built. In 2018, the brand added Whiskey Row, notable for its Mexican San Andrés binder being aged in barrels that previously held Rabbit Hole bourbon.
