Diesel made the move from a catalog- and internet-only brand to one that is available to all retailers in 2017, there’s certainly been no shortage of cigars released to introduce the brand to those who might not have been familiar with it.

The latest entry is the brand’s second limited edition—at least since changing its availability—the Diesel Delirium, a cigar that General Cigar Co. bills as the boldest blend to bear the Diesel name. That assertion comes by way of an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Connecticut broadleaf binder and Nicaraguan fillers highlighted by tobacco from the company’s Ometepe region—known for its volcanic soil and distinct taste—as well as a good bit of ligero, the leaves that comes from the top of a tobacco plant and are the strongest and most flavorful.

The cigar is available in a single 6 x 52 toro vitola that comes packaged in 10-count boxes, with individual cigars priced at $10 per cigar. Production was limited to 5,000 boxes, each of which features an interior lid that lists off a number of maladies often associated with delirium in a motif that is reminiscent to old-time pharmacies and medicines.

Keeping with the trend of the 6ish by 52ish single vitola releases, the Diesel Delirium’s toro vitola feels immediately recognizable and thus a bit less than inspiring. The wrapper is a very earthy brown color; visually it’s on the matte side but tactilely feeling like it has some oil to it. It also provides for an interesting visual with the wrapper; while I normally wouldn’t advocate this combination of black and brown, it works and the gold and red bring things together pretty decently. There’s also a good bit of tooth in between the veins. The cigar feels well-rolled, firm without being hard, and there’s not much visually to suggest otherwise, though a jagged seam right under the one cigar’s band catches my eye. Aroma off the foot is sweet and earthy, reminding me of picking blackberries off the bush in terms of the overall smell. There’s black pepper in the mix as well, though it is hit or miss as one sample had none and the other two had quite a bit. The cold draw skews more towards the earthy side with less sweetness, adding a bit of wood, latte foam and the occasional pinch baking spices. There’s only a pinch of black pepper here, and it feels like it is coming more from the physical contact with the cigar than the flavor.
