The new Diesel Estelí Puro will be launched in September 1. The cigars are made by A.J. Fernandez, in Nicaragua, and as the name suggests, the blend is made of leaves grown in Estelí, Nicaragua. Specifically, the wrapper leaf was harvested from La Lilia, the binder from San José, and the fillers from different fields, which include the San Lotano farm.
Senior Brand Manager Justin Andrews said, “Estelí Puro represents the future of Diesel in that the story of the blend is told by the tobacco itself. With Estelí Puro, we made a collection that is completely unique in its bold flavor profile, yet has many of the attributes that have made the other Diesel expressions a cigar of choice among dyed-in-the-wool smokers. This is a cigar that demands the smoker’s full attention with deep and balanced flavor, a strong presentation, and an attractive price point.”
