I can assure you....you are not ready for Diesel Wicked cigars. Your unsuspecting palate is not yet prepared for the full-bodied complexity this devilishly enchanting breed has to offer. Your humidor cannot possibly fit another super-premium demanding permanent residency. Your daily rotation cannot be swayed, altered, nor manipulated to include an aggressive new ‘cuvee de’ Diesel layered with this level of depth and sophistication. Something Wicked this way comes....and I suggest you run, lest be consumed by its alluring embrace.
By the pricking of my thumbs....
Pitch black, long-leaf ligeros cultivated from the rich, volcanic soils of Nicaragua’s top growing regions. Binders hand selected from top-priming Habano leaves grown in Esteli, Nicaragua. Thick, Broadleaf maduro ligero wrappers from Pennsylvania glistening with oils. These are the components used to craft Diesel Wicked. A full-bodied, full-flavored apparition formed by the hands of a master. The weak and timid need not apply - Wicked yields a bold assortment of deep nuances and spicy undertones. Oak, leather, dark tobacco, roasted espresso bean, black pepper, red pepper. A feisty charisma that grows more intense with each puff. Diesel Wicked, the cigar you’ve been asking for.
Open locks, whoever knocks....

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.
Foundation The Wise Man Maduro features a Mexican San Andrés wrapper that is as dark and oily as they come. Underneath this wrapper is a premium blend of the finest age Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. The construction is flawless, the burn is slow, and the medium to full body flavors of peppery spice, leather, espresso, chocolate, cashews, and honey, are intensely delicious. When the occasion calls for a top-shelf maduro cigar, the Wise Man Maduro is your solution!
The Wiseman Maduro was named the number 3 Cigar of the Year for the Cigar Aficionado Top 25 Cigars for 2018.
This little super-premium beauty is a sight to behold, with a wrapper so dark it is almost black. Flavors of charred wood, dark chocolate, espresso, and sweet spice make for a most rewarding smoke. Hard to find, but well worth the wait, the Arturo Fuente Short Story Maduro is one of the most highly regarded cigars in the world. Packaged in a box of 25.
Ashton Cigars. San Cristobal. Don Pepin Garcia. Three names that have changed the cigar industry radically over the years with their top-shelf handmades. And San Cristobal Quintessence is no different. If you haven't tried any San Cristobals yet, you're in for a real treat. I don’t know what a quintessence is, but for my money you could put this in the dictionary: “One helluva tasty cigar.”
Made at the My Father Cigars factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, San Cristobal Quintessence uses an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper most excellently. Medium to full-bodied, this one coats the palate with coffee, spice, and a rich, unique sweetness that you’ll absolutely love. The Nicaraguan binder and long-fillers grown by the Garcia family put this one over the top, into the category of “must-have.”
Great news - San Cristobal Quintessence was honored as one of the Top 25 Cigars of 2018 with a score of 92-points. Here's what the critics had to say, "an impressive combination of balance and character. It’s a leathery and spicy cigar but well layered with sweet notes of chocolate. The construction is remarkably good."
A stunning tribute
A.J. Fernandez can do no wrong. From his boutique brands like Diesel and Man O’ War, to his flagship, larger scale releases like San Lotano and Last Call, all the way down to his reinterpretation of classic Cuban brands like Romeo and Hoyo, this man can, quite simply, do it all. And he does it all masterfully. Today, we welcome the newest A.J. tribute to a classic Cuban name, Ramon Allones by A.J. Fernandez. And, quite simply, it might be his best work to date.
You see, this is a true passion project for A.J. Ramon Allones was his father’s favorite cigar brand back in Cuba, and the cigar has a long, storied history in our industry (did you know Ramon Allones was the first handmade cigar to feature a band?). To pay true homage to this historical landmark in tobacco, A.J. spared no expense, producing one of the most beautiful packages I’ve ever seen. Employing an incredibly rare medio tempo wrapper leaf, Ramon Allones by A.J. is medium to full-bodied and signs with a beautiful harmony of cedar, spice, chocolate, earth, and slight hints of black pepper.
Great news, Ramon Allones just earned a stunning 92-rating and was honored as one of the Top 25 Cigars of 2018. Here's what the experts had to say: "Each puff of this toothy cigar leaves big notes of semi-sweet chocolate, leather and cherry on the palate before a sweet finish that shows more of the same."
A Cigar for Your Cerebellum
The brainchild of Christian Eiroa and Tom Lazaka has evolved into what can only be described as insanely good. Asylum 13 offers bold blends with abundant flavor and craftsmanship that is nothing short of perfection - and the newest creation will blow your mind.
Medulla Oblongata is composed of Honduran wrapper, binder, and filler - making this little puro a medium to full-bodied taste sensation with notes of leather, earth, espresso, and spice. What makes this cigar so unique is how it’s packaged. Available in boxes of 50 with 25 Medulla (round parejos) and 25 Oblongata (box-pressed cigars) – a great way to experience the variations of these two formats. Order a box today and step into the Asylum for an experience you won’t find anywhere else.
This is your brain on maduro
After being one of the main minds behind the Camacho brand, it’d be hard to go anywhere but down in the industry. Luckily, Christian Eiroa has exceeded expectations, by starting his own boutique brand known as Asylum. Handcrafted in Honduras, each of these blends features abundant flavor with a level of craftsmanship that can’t be defined as anything other than perfection.
Today, we’re staring down the barrel of the Maduro follow-up to the Medulla Oblongata, and it’s a most tasty treat indeed. Stepping up the cigar in terms of body and flavor, each one of these handmades booms out thick notes of black pepper, leather, espresso, and earth. Plus, each box of 50 features 25 round cigars and 25 box-pressed ones, allowing you to experience two uniquely nuanced versions of this showcase cigar.
Viaje goes to great lengths to ensure its cigars are of the utmost quality, and to accomplish this, the company only makes small-batch blends from rare and hard to find tobaccos. While this practice ensures top notch cigars, it can also make tracking them down somewhat challenging.
Viaje Satori is the perfect example of this, as it is a very limited release with the quality you’d expect from this brand. Satori, which translates to enlightenment is a Nicaraguan puro which is wrapped with a very dark Oscuro leaf and brimming with well-aged long-fillers. This results in a complex cigar which exudes a dried fruit sweetness, which balances nicely with notes of leather, red pepper, and espresso. Secure your box today, because once they sell out, there’s no telling if these beauties will be coming back.
