DIESEL LAUNCHES THIRD “SUNDAY GRAVY” EXPRESSION.
Diesel is rolling out its third Sunday Gravy release with “Rosamarino,” a Nicaraguan puro made with premium tobacco from the country’s main growing regions.
In a nod to the layered smoking experience this blend delivers, Rosamarino takes its name from the Italian translation of rosemary, a popular herb that lends complexity to any dish in which it appears.
Blended by AJ Fernandez and Justin Andrews and handcrafted at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Esteli, Nicaragua, Diesel Sunday Gravy Rosamarino features a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan Habano Condega binder and blend of three, Nicaraguan fillers from Esteli, Ometepe and Condega. This is a bold and distinctive cigar, with savory notes of pepper and spice.
Justin Andrews said, “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. 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.”
Rosamarino is being released in a toro size only, which both AJ and Justin agree is the best expression of the blend. This release is being offered at an SRP of just under $5.00 per cigar, making it an affordable indulgence for a variety of smokers.
Rosamarino (6” x 50); SRP per cigar $4.99
Diesel Sunday Gravy Rosamarino will be available nationally from February-March 2022, or until the cigars are sold out. The next Sunday Gravy blend will be released in April, 2022.
Diesel cigars are produced by Scandinavian Tobacco Group and distributed by Forged Cigar Company.
About Diesel Sunday Gravy
Diesel Sunday Gravy launched in August 2021 as a full-time line of seasonally-released, Nicaraguan-forward smokes, blended and handcrafted through Diesel’s winning partnership of AJ Fernandez and Justin Andrews. Blends will be released quarterly, sold until their limited supply is deleted and offered at an unbelievable SRP of less than $5.00 per cigar.
Handcrafted by artisans in Esteli, Nicaragua, Diesel cigars are “bold by design.” The brand challenges the current conventions of the handmade cigar category through the bold, unapologetic style of its Cigar Master, AJ Fernandez. Diesel cigars are unified by their deeply complex flavor which is achieved through AJ’s steadfast adherence to time honored cigar making techniques and his insistence on using the highest quality tobacco. The Diesel portfolio includes Hair of the Dog which was released in 2019; Whiskey Row which launched two expressions, one in 2019 and one in 2018, and Diesel Grind which debuted in 2017.
