I recently purchased some of the Diesel Whiskey Row Robusto. Worst cigar I have every received from CigarBid. I opened one immediately upon receipt only to find that the wrap was very dry and unraveling, burn was extremely uneven, and there was no hint of whiskey taste in them. Don't waste your time on these guys.

You been here going on 5 years.
So, you should know by now that:
- It's an AJ cigar....in particular.....a diesel.

Smoking one ROTT is most likely not gonna turn out that wonderful.
Bury them somewhere and revisit one on the 4th of July next summer.
It will likely morph into a nice smokeable yard gar.....good to chew on while you're grilling.

The regular diesels age nicely.

It must’ve been pretty bad to bring this guy out of a five year hibernation. Have you tried the CAO Brazilia?

Maybe with 7 months of age, yes, but I've had Diesels with 5 years on them that became world-class, notably a batch of 2012 Diesel Unlimiteds smoked in 2017. They had become quite amazing.

"Yard gar" isn't the limit of what a Diesel can become with age, not even close.

actually you're full of crap! I smoked all 5 of my 5.5" x 52 Robustos! No dry wrappers. Great flavor! A good smoke at $2.80 per!
