A MELTING POT OF PURE VOLCANIC POWER: DIESEL CRUCIBLE
From the minds that brought you Diesel Hair of The Dog and Diesel Delirium, comes the final chapter of Diesel’s bold, Elixir trilogy, Diesel Crucible.
“Forged in the volcanic soils of Nicaragua, Crucible is a limited-edition cigar with a one-of-a-kind strength, spice, and story.”
When imagining how Crucible would become the rightful exclamation mark to end the Elixir trilogy, Diesel brand manager, Justin Andrews and master blender, A.J. Fernandez knew the key to success was creating a perfectly-bold melting pot of straight-up powerhouse tobaccos. And not just in strength, this thing needed to be dressed to the nines in a wrapper that really only someone like A.J. could bring to life.
“Spoiler alert. Melting pot = crucible & that’s where the name Crucible comes from.”
They immediately flew to Nicaragua, knowing their volcanic-rich soils were the only ones formidable enough to host such a blazing concoction of tobaccos.
“If there’s one thing Crucible does, it shows the power of time. We did three things all involving more time. The Habano wrapper tobacco was planted earlier than normal. We chose top primings during harvest, giving the wrapper leaf more time in the sun. And we triple fermented the tobacco which all led to a stronger leaf.” -Justin Andrews
Now, after pushing that soil and the test of time to their limits, A.J. and Justin trusted their instincts, broke a few conventions, and are proud to present an ironclad concoction of a cigar that brings the unparalleled spice of Nicaragua to each and every puff.
