First Third – First few puffs of tangy, earthy cedar with a subtle spice, almost caramel like, kick off this cigar. Flavor gets leathery mixed with earth moving the spice to the finish. The burn has a slight wave to it. Ash is light gray and solid.
Second Third – Nice mix of nutty notes blended with oak begin this third with the spice fading to quickly to almost non-existent. Leather still sits on the palate but moving towards the finish. The burn became fairly tight. Ash fell at the 2-inch mark.
Final Third – The flavors transition to the tangy oak notes. Spice also present but on the finish mixed with the leather. The burn remains tight through the finish.
Wine – Dolce Late Harvest
The Diesel Unlimited dX is nice full bodied stick for the price. I thought the flavor profile in this one in particular was a little muddled compared to the other AJ Fernandez Cigars I am used to. Would it be my first choice, probably not, but if it were offered I would definitely smoke this again with a friend or colleague. This looks to be an exclusive through Cigars International, which is the one place I have been able to find them.
