Diesel to Launch Whiskey Row Founder’s Collection Mizunara Cigar

Diesel and Rabbit Hole are marking their fourth collaboration with the release of Diesel Whiskey Row Founder’s Collection Mizunara, a cigar that highlights the mastery of blending.

Diesel Whiskey Row Founder’s Collection Mizunara was developed by Justin Andrews, blended by AJ Fernandez and handcrafted at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Estelí, Nicaragua. The cigar features a proprietary aging process and leverages rare Japanese Mizunara oak barrels that were used to age Rabbit Hole’s 15-Year-Old Mizuna Founder’s Collection bourbon.

The limited-edition cigar blend is centered on a proprietary Nicaraguan Habano binder leaf selected for aging in the virgin Japanese Mizunara oak casks that aged Rabbit Hole Mizunara Founder’s Collection Bourbon which was released in 2021. The cigar is blended with Nicaraguan Habano filler tobacco and crowned with a rich Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.

Justin Andrews said, “With Diesel Whiskey Row Founder’s Collection Mizunara, we have given the binder leaf a distinctive personality through its contact with the hand-shaped barrels to create a unique smoking experience. This cigar pairs beautifully with bourbon and creates an equally memorable smoking occasion on its own.” 

Diesel Whiskey Row Founder’s Collection Mizunara is being released exclusively in a Toro format. The 6” x 52 cigar is presented in elegant boxes that mirror the packaging of Rabbit Hole Mizunara Founder’s Collection. The cigars will sell for $15.99 each, or $159.90 for a ten-count box and is shipping now.

Diesel Whiskey Row debuted in June 2018 and marked the first collaboration between Diesel and Rabbit Hole. It was the first cigar to feature a binder leaf aged in Rabbit Hole bourbon barrels and generated a significant following among cigar lovers nationwide. The partnership expanded in 2019 with the launch of Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask and includes Diesel Whiskey Row Founder’s Collection Boxergrail which was released in 2023.
