In the great Italian sandwich debate, what you call it depends on where you’re from. It’s either a “sub,” a “hoagie,” or, if you lived in Brooklyn back in the day, you called it a “hero.” Either way, the bread’s soft inside and drizzled with the vinegar, oil and oregano mix, and there’s heaps of provolone, salami and lettuce. To be legit, it’s gotta have capicola. Or Gabagool as the cool kids call it.

Where are we going with this?

Gabagool is the name of Diesel’s latest Sunday Gravy offering.

In a nod to the line’s culinary inspirations, Diesel Sunday Gravy “Gabagool” is named after the smoky, dry-cured ham that’s heavily seasoned and deeply flavorful.

Blended by AJ Fernandez and Justin Andrews and handcrafted at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Esteli, Nicaragua, Diesel Sunday Gravy Gabaool is crafted with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, a Connecticut Broadleaf binder and a Nicaraguan Esteli filler. The experience is firmly medium-bodied and profoundly complex, with notes of pepper, wood and a touch of spice.

Justin Andrews said, “When AJ and I blended Gabagool, we wanted to change things up a bit. We intentionally stayed away from power on this cigar and instead delivered on the palate. This blend is an experience. There’s a lot of complexity with Gabagool…you get many different notes when you smoke this blend. We’re really happy with the way this cigar smokes, and expect it to sell out fast.”

Gabagool is being released in a lonsdale size only, and boxes will contain 10 cigars. As with other Diesel Sunday Gravy releases, Gabagool is being offered at an SRP of just under $5.00 per cigar, making it an affordable indulgence for almost any smoking occasion.
