Cigar Review: Diesel Whiskey Row Robusto
Diesel. Whiskey. Cigars. Are there three things more manly?
Today I'm smoking a cigar I've never had from a brand that's still pretty new to me. Today's adventure is the Diesel Whiskey Row Robusto, a cigar with a binder aged in Rabbit Hole's Kentucky bourbon barrels before being shipped to cigar shops.
As soon as I took the cigar out of the cellophane, I could smell a sweet aroma of whiskey. After punching the end, the draw was incredibly smooth and the cigar was easy to light. One thing I noticed on the first few puffs is how prevalent the taste of whiskey is in this cigar.
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Binder: Mexican San Andres
Smoke Time: 82 minutes
The first half of the Diesel Whiskey Row Robusto was delicious. The draw was a little tight, but nothing too bad. The burn was even and almost perfect.
The second half of the cigar got a little bit harsh, but only the slightest bit. The final third is where things got notably worse, specifically, the burn became uneven and I had to torch it to even it up.
However, I think the Diesel Whiskey Row Robusto is a great cigar I'd smoke again. It has great flavors of Nicaraguan tobacco and sweet whiskey. I'd smoke this again for sure, so a CigarScore 4 for the Whiskey Row.
