Diesel Cigars and Rabbit Hole Bourbon have reignited their partnership with Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask, a three-cigar collection that shipped to all channels on June 3, 2019.
Developed by Justin Andrews, blended by AJ Fernandez and handcrafted at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Esteli, Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask features Nicaraguan-aged tobaccos cultivated on three continents. This new collection once again calls upon a proprietary aging process by barrel-aging the binder leaves.
The binder leaf of Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask is an Arapiraca leaf from Central Brazil’s Alagoas region which was selected for aging in Rabbit Hole’s Pedro Ximénez Sherry barrels. It is blended with Nicaraguan Habano and crowned with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.
Justin Andrews, senior brand manager for Diesel cigars said, “With Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask, we set out to expand the Diesel portfolio by offering cigar and spirits lovers a deeper sensory experience and I believe we have delivered that in spades. This new blend is perfectly suited to pairing with a fine spirit, stands up equally well on its own, and has all the makings of another runaway success for Diesel.”
Kaveh Zamanian, founder and whiskey maker of Rabbit Hole said, “For our second collaboration with Diesel, we selected our rich and aromatic Pedro Ximénez sherry casks for AJ to use in the tobacco aging process because we knew they would lend a stunning complexity to the blend. ‘Sherry Cask’ speaks to the power of our partnership with Diesel and our collective focus on combining heritage technique and refined innovation to heighten the experience of fine cigars and spirits.”
Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask is available in three sizes, each presented in 20-count wooden boxes.
