Diesel d10th – Cigar Review

Diesel d10th

This is a cigar review of a Diesel d10th by Diesel cigars by AJ Fernandez. The size chosen for this review is the torpedo. This cigar is composed of a Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper followed by Nicaraguan tobaccos in the blend. This is a full-bodied cigar that retails for around $8.40 at Cigars International. This is the commemorative release 10th anniversary cigar to celebrate the 10 years of Diesel Cigars.

Construction/Appearance:

This Diesel d10th has a nice milk chocolate silky smooth wrapper that shows some obvious veins and clearly visible yet tight seams. The cigar has two bands with the second being on the foot clearly indicating the d10th.

Pre-Light:

Aromas of barnyard with a nutty nuance come to mind when inhaling the scents from this wrapper. We used the Xikar XO straight cut for this review. The cold draw produces notes of smoked cedar and nuts.

After Toast:

First Third – First few puffs of tangy cedar and wood like notes with a nice chocolate hint on the finish.  A nice fresh dark roasted coffee note comes out towards the middle of this third once it settles in. A lightly oiled leather finish begins to form towards the end of this third. The body is full, burn sharp and ash holds.

Second Third – The nice dark chocolate note comes back here followed by that spicy wood like flavor with the roasted coffee notes. A subtle spicy note enters the fold as well. The body remains full, burn remains sharp and ash falls at the beginning of this third.

Final Third – Deep dark chocolate with spice and coffee really pound the palate to the finish. The leather like richness is added to the finish to complete the experience. The body remains full and burn remains sharp.

Suggested Pairing:

Bourbon – Breaker Bourbon

Whiskey – Gentleman Jack

Overall Experience:

This Diesel d10th is a decent cigar that packed a nice full bodied punch. It had a lot in terms of complexity however at times I felt the flavor profile was muddled a bit. While not my favorite from the Diesel brand it does have some promise. For the price point I think there are better options out there.
