For many years Diesel Cigars have been a staple brand in the cigar world. Their rugged, full bodied blends are the John Wayne of cigars – they don’t take no sh*t off nobody! In addition to being highly reviewed, Diesel’s blends are some of the most commonly smoked blends among cigar enthusiasts. Now the Whiskey Row has added a new flavor to their diverse catalog. With tobacco aged in whiskey barrels from Rabbit Hole Distillery, you’ll get authentic whiskey notes without any flavoring or infusion.
Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask Robusto (5×52)
$9.89 – $178.02
In the same line as the Diesel Whiskey Row comes a brand new blend that this time isn’t aged in bourbon barrels. The Sherry Cask is given it’s name for the way that it’s Brazilian binders have been aged in sherry barrels that contained Pedro Ximenez Sherry from Spain.

This was part of a collection from C.D.
I’m not big on dark strong sticks. Unless they are low or zero pepper taste. This stick was too full of pepper for my taste but I was looking for the sherry in this one. It’s there but just hard to fully enjoy it with pepper constantly overshadowing it. Put it down about 60% through. I wouldn’t buy it again. Now with the balance of the collection remaining I hope for better. It had a great draw and it’s a beauty on looks. My rating is a 85. Those who like pepper will enjoy it.
Absolutely phenomenal full bodied stick. Lots of blackberries, dark chocolate, espresso, heavy pepper, and some woodsy flavors. Excellent construction and a fantastic burn.

This cigar is very different than my usual smokes. The “Cut and a light” starts up with some fruity sweetness. Into the first third, I’m getting like a liqueur infused fruit cake flavor. Very vivid flavors. There’s a cheeky sweetness, coffee, milk chocolate, espresso, dark maraschino cherry, and a hint of cedar. The flavor profile is more pronounced in the second third but consistent. It has a wavy burn and the ash fell off at about an inch. Seems full flavor, full body. A slight bitterness in the aftertaste. A smooth peppery retro hale. Almost seems like an infused cigar. If I smoked this without knowing what it was, I’d probably guess it to be an acid cigar. The final third is full strength. The second band was glued on very well. It smoked pretty fast almost like a short filler. I wouldn’t know how to rate this because it’s so far out of my wheel house. It seems unnatural. Less than an hour on the smoke time. I probably won’t buy this again. I want to say there’s some mint in the final third, but it was very light. It seems like it could be compared to a BBQ’d fruit cake using liquid smoke. You could choke up on the smoke if you let it too deep into the back of your mouth. (Yea, that’s what she said) The burn line gets better in the last third and the ash held on a little longer but not much. A very dry cigar like it’s begging for humidity. Over puffing this doesn’t seem to ruin the flavors much. It had a slightly reduced smoke output, but a solid fell like it was well packed and rolled.

This stick had a great draw held together great, burned well even though it was windy and it taste good.
