General Cigar Co. is releasing a new Diesel cigar named Delirium. This limited-edition cigar is the boldest Diesel blend to date and blended by AJ Fernandez at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Esteli, Nicaragua.
Diesel Delirium was developed by Justin Andrews, the brand manager for Diesel. It features an Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper, a Connecticut Broadleaf binder and a blend of Nicaraguan ligero and Ometepe. General Cigar describes Delirium as a peppery smoke that delivers a range of spices along with hints of nuts and an unexpected touch of nougat. It is available in one size–a Toro (6 x 52) and will have an MSRP of $10 per cigar. The cigars are presented in a rustic 10-count wooden box with two compartments, each containing five cigars. Only 5,000 boxes will be released and the cigar is expected to sell out quickly.
“Diesel Delirium is about disruption,” explains Andrews. “It’s a cigar that demands the smoker’s full attention and while it follows Hair of the Dog, the two blends couldn’t be more different. Delirium’s definitely powerhouse of a smoke, but it’s not just that. It’s also about dimension and balance, and that begins and ends with the blend we developed. This is a cigar that we recommend enjoying when you have time to commit to really experiencing the full spectrum of taste it delivers.”
