Diesel Heart of Darkness
Best of the best
We love Diesel. It’s a brand that has consistently performed, with each blend under the Diesel name promising a unique experience unlike anything else on the market. To ask for more seems greedy, but, let’s face it — with Diesel, we always want more. Enter the new Diesel Heart of Darkness. A limited edition blend, this one’s pure substance. It’s dark, it’s bold, and it’s unapologetically Diesel.
Diesel Heart of Darkness comes in one perfected size: a meaty, 6” x 58 Gordo. Inside each box you’ll find 14 Ecuador Habano Oscuro wrapped gems. The dark, oily wrapper leaf sits atop a potent firecracker blend of all long-fillers from three different regions in Nicaragua, plus some additional Esteli ligero to put this one over the top. Each puff delivers a chewy feast of bitter espresso, earth, black pepper, and salty leather. Prepare for your palate to kick into overdrive as you burn your fingers taking this one down to the nub.
If you’ve been around these parts long enough to have seen some other Diesel limited releases, you know as well as I do that this blend is gonna fly. Act quickly son. Otherwise you’ll be left with scraps while everyone else is enjoying filet.

Drew Estate was founded in 1996 in New York City, and it seems Jonathan Drew, the founder, hasn’t slept for the last two decades. I don’t know how you could when you release as many innovative, game-changing cigars as this guy does. From Undercrown to Herrera Esteli, from ACID to Larutan, the Drew Estate domain is wide and strong, offering up a premium option in almost every aspect of the cigar world. Today, they expand their boundaries a little more with the introduction of a new line of budget-friendly, uber-flavorful bundles… the Factory Smokes.
Up first, we’re checking out Factory Smokes Sweet, an option that lovers of Kuba Kuba and Tabak Especial should be snatching up ASAP. Inside each bundle of 20 is a sweet-tipped Habano wrapper overtop Indonesian binder. The flavor is sweet without being overwhelming, offering up a mouthwatering profile of crisp tobacco, creamy coffee, and slight hints of vanilla. All the great flavor of ACID, without the high price tag… what’s not to love?
The perfect bite
With the great success of the Lotus Jaws double guillotine straight cutter, Lotus decided to expand the line to include a v-cutter as well. The Lotus Jaws V-cutter is a similar flashy design to the original Jaws Cutter with some added improvements. The body is now crafted with lightweight zinc and aluminum making it less of a burden to carry while remaining reliable and sturdy. The fingers holes were given more of an oval shape for added comfort, but the same ergonomic shape of the cutter was maintained for ease of use. The razor sharp, serrated v-cut blades act like teeth to grip onto the tobacco and allow the guided blade to effortlessly slice through the cap of any 64-ring gauge cigar. For the perfect bite out of your next cigar pick up the trendy Lotus Jaws Serrated V-cutter.

Way back at the IPCPR in 2016, E.P. Carrillo teased the second release in their Family line, the Encore. Since then, we’ve been waiting. Here’s a quick refresher course for those lagging behind: the first release in Carrillo’s Family Series, La Historia, was named the #2 Cigar of the Year and received an astounding 95-rating. Needless to say, Encore’s got some big boots to fill.
Here’s the good news: we most eagerly sampled a batch of Encores a few weeks back, and the feedback was unanimous. This cigar is an instant classic. The secret’s in the sauce: Encore features all Nicaraguan tobacco that’s been aged and married in tercios together for two years. The result is a balance and elegance unrivaled in the industry. Encore encapsulates complexity, delivering a luscious profile ripe with soft tobacco notes, slight cedar, baking spices, and hints of sweetness. Destined for 90+ ratings, get aboard Encore now.
We told you this one was destined for greatness! E.P. Carrillo Encore has received an unrivaled 96-point rating and was named the #1 Cigar of 2018, noting: "It’s elegant, refined and nuanced from first puff to last, but is also the culmination of a long career in tobacco and the result of a man who was never afraid to follow his instincts."
