Cigar Review: Diesel Rage

Basic Information:

Name – Diesel Rage

Size – Toro – Box Pressed

Wrapper – ​Ecuadorian Habano Sun Grown Oscuro

Tobacco Blend – Nicaraguan

Pricing – $6.18

Body – Medium +

Construction/Appearance:

​The band is located on the foot of the cigar in white with black and red fonts.

The cigar color reflects a beautiful radiant milk chocolate. It is silky smooth to the touch. I see a few small veins and the seams are invisible. It is finished off with a double cap.

Pre-Light:

Aroma – Mesquite hickory type wood aromas.

Type of Cut – V-Cut

Cold Draw – Tight draw with a musty cedar.

After Toast:

First third – ​​Real strong woody earthy notes mixed with some nuts. Slight pepper on the back of the throat. Few minutes in a vanilla note becomes the predominant flavor. Burn is pristine.  Ash is mid gray in color.

Second Third – ​A woody and citrus note take the stage with a zing of pepper that is light but present. Burn turned wavy.

Final Third – ​Flavors kept to the wood earth notes with a new note of espresso. Muddy flavors though not real distinct. Burn remained wavy.

Suggested Pairing:

Rye – Knob Creek Rye

Wine – Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay

Overall Experience:

This Diesel Rage is a medium plus bodied smoking experience. I thought the flavors were not as pronounced as they could have been and a little muddled. This could be because the draw was super tight which did not allow me to thoroughly enjoy this stick. Would I try it again if given to me, sure, but it is not something I would go out and search for on my own.
