There’s a new regular production line for Diesel, and it’s already shipping to stores.

Like the rest of the Diesel brand, the Diesel Vintage Series is made by AJ Fernandez in Nicaragua with this blend using a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a binder from Estelí, Nicaragua and fillers from Jalapa, Nicaragua. As the name implies, aging is part of this cigar; the company says that the fillers have been aged for 5-8 years.

It is offered in five regular production sizes:

  • Diesel Vintage Series Gigante Nub (4 1/2 x 60) — $8.79 (Box of 20, $175.80)
  • Diesel Vintage Series Robusto Gordo (5 x 56) — $7.79 (Box of 20, $155.80)
  • Diesel Vintage Series Toro (6 x 52) — $7.99 (Box of 20, $159.80)
  • Diesel Vintage Series Double Corona (7 3/4 x 49) — $8.79 (Box of 20, $175.80)
  • Diesel Vintage Series Rabito (6 x 46) — $9.29 (Box of 10, $92.90)

“With Vintage Series, we’ve responded to feedback from our valued retailers across the country who told us they wanted to give their customers the true experience of vintage tobacco in a well-crafted, premium smoke,” said Justin Andrews, business development manager of Scandinavian Tobacco Group’s (STG) North American Branded and Rest of World divisions, in a press release. “The catch was that it had to be at just the right price point. I’m proud to say that AJ Fernandez and I have delivered a cigar that fires on all cylinders: quality, construction, complexity and price.”

The Diesel brand is distributed by STG’s Forged Cigar Co.
