  3. Dark chocolate

  3. Coffee

Final Third

  1. Earth
  2. Leather
  3. Dark chocolate

Total Time: 1 hr and 30 minutes

Overall:  Full body and full strength. The pepper fades out into the first third. The core is earth, leather, and coffee. There is wood( sweet cedar transitions to vanilla oak) with dark fruit and dark chocolate throughout (background). Well balanced with just the right amount of sweetness to soften and round out  the big flavors giving it a really creamy mouth feel.  Excellent construction and smoke production. Required no touch ups and held the ash to the first band without a problem.

1st Third:

  1. Pepper
  2. Peanut butter
  3. Leather

2nd Third

  1. Dried fruit
  2. Leather
  3. Espresso

Final Third

  1. Leather
  2. Espresso
  3. Earth

Total Time: 1 hr 25 min

Overall:  Full body and full strength.  The pepper is strong with the first half giving way to a bitter sweet coffee leather and a gritty earth in the second half. If you like em strong, this one’s for you. If you prefer smooth and nuanced, this might be one to pass on. This cigar is for fans of spice, coffee and power. It doesn’t quite have the sweetness and complexity of the Neanderthal but the power is pretty close.

Final Third

  1. Leather
  2. Earth
  3. Pepper

Total Time: 1hr 32 min

Overall:  Full Bodied.  This is exactly what you expect when you hear the name “DIESEL.”  This short packs a punch.  The construction is solid, and the ash holds tight.  It starts off as a mouth full of pepper which makes your mouth water, and primes your taste buds for the rest to come.  There are nice notes of leather, with hints of licorice, nut and earth.  It is well balanced and complex.  The retrohale is peppery, so be ready.
