Diesel Cigars will soon roll out ‘Hair of the Dog’ to the market. It is a limited-edition release, landing at retailers this month. The cigar was developed by Justin Andrews, blended by AJ Fernandez, and made entirely by hand at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Esteli, Nicaragua. Hair of the Dog is a medium/full smoke blended to give the smoker earthy flavors, along with notes of pepper. The filler leaves are 100-percent Nicaraguan Habano, with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, then an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder.
“Diesel Hair of the Dog was blended to have just the right amount of kick. It’s not an overly powerful cigar, yet it really delivers on the flavor. For the cigar lover who’s looking for the hair of a dog after a night of over-indulgence, or for anyone who seeks the complexity of Nicaraguan tobacco, Hair of the Dog is definitely going to do the trick.” said Justin Andrews, Senior Brand Manager
Diesel Hair of the Dog comes in one size only, that being a box-pressed 6 x 64 Toro. It will carry a MSRP of $10.00 per cigar, presented in 10-count boxes. Only 5,000 boxes were produced.
Hair of the Dog complements Diesel Whiskey Row, launched last year in partnership with Rabbit Hole Bourbon, and reviewed recently on HBTC.
