GigantePicked this cigar up in a cigar shop in Lake Havasu Arizona while on a cross country motorcycle trip. I am a big AJ Fernandez fan and thought I’d give it a go. I’m glad I did, it has become my new favorite. Big fan of the size. This cigar burned razor sharp construction was great. It put out a lot of smoke, held a good ash and the draw was perfect. Great flavor from the first third to the nub. It was so good I stopped on my way back home to North Carolina and bought several more.I have now smoked 4 of these cigars and have enjoyed them all so I ordered a box. AJ never disappoints and these are no exception. Like I said before they are my new favorite.551

Diesel Esteli Puro
6 × 60
Produced by legendary cigarmaker AJ Fernandez, Diesel Esteli Puro Gigante cigars are Nicaraguan puros made entirely of tobaccos from the country’s fertile Estelí region. Estelí is the city in Nicaragua where most of the nation’s cigars are rolled, but it’s also home to tobacco fields known in the industry for producing bold, Cuban style blends. This totally homegrown blend includes a silky deep brown EMS wrapper leaf harvested from the La Lilla plantation, a binder from San José and long fillers from several fertile fields including AJ’s famous San Lotano farm. Once lit, the hefty 6 x 60 Magnum delivers a medium to full bodied smoke that’s rife with spicy and peppery top notes, backed by rich flavors of dark roast coffee, leather, earth, and sweet cream. Order a box of 20 from JR Cigar today, and find out why tobaccos from the Esteli region of Nicaragua provide a truly unforgettable smoke.
