In Spring 2 010, Shorty received a personal invitation from Diesel cigar maker Abdel (A.J.) Fernandez to visit the factory and get a first-hand look at production, in addition to experiencing cigar country for a week. Shorty got a real taste of what cigar life is all about, visiting factories, farms and tobacco processing facilities. He was also given an opportunity tomake his very own size in the Diesel line on this first trip and since then has developed a full line of Shorty Cigars. Shorty’s Cigars are available at select tobacconists across the country, at Cigar.com and for qualified Wholesale buyers, online at Meier Dutch.

THE SHORTY ROSSI CIGAR COLLECTION
DIESEL RAGE SHORTY EDITION
Creating a new a Diesel is hard. Creating a new Diesel that outdoes the outstanding core lines is even harder. Almost impossible, actually. But AJ Fernandez stepped up and nailed it…again. This limited edition cigar will blow your mind, that’s a promise.
Diesel Rage showcases an ultra-dark Ecuadorian Habano Sun Grown Oscuro wrapper overtop a perfect recipe of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers grown for this project on AJ’s farms. This combination is 100% in sync, uniting to deliver an overload of complex flavors including earth, vanilla, coffee, spices, and cedar, all while offering just enough strength without becoming overpowering. It’s balanced. It’s bold. It’s smooth. It’s complex. It’s unique. It’s Diesel Rage and it’s a premium handmade stroke of genius.
If you’re searching for a Diesel blend that packs a bit more of a punch, then pick up a box of Diesel Shorty Ltd. Edition today! These special cigars were crafted by Hollywood Reality TV Mogul Shorty Rossi as his daily cigar. Shorty spent time with A.J. Fernandez to craft this special 4.5″x60 size that packs a full-bodied punch from start to finish.
Diesel exudes a unique leathery and spicy flavor with a toasty core of espresso beans. The package has a classic, rustic look while the blend is perfectly balanced and will appeal to any aficionado who appreciates premium tobacco. Boasting fillers from Nicaragua’s Jalapa, Condega and Esteli regions, each and every leaf is aged for three years, then concealed with a dark and oily Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper. This is one unique cigar you’re sure to love.
When it comes to a loyal following, no crowd is more devoted than the fans of Diesel cigars. Carefully crafted in Nicaragua, and delivering big-time balanced flavors, Diesel cigars have bridged the gap between finely crafted boutique handmades and an affordable price tag. A feat most brands ? if any ? can’t come close to matching.
Now enter, the Diesel Grind, a brand-new and innovative cigar that maintains the renowned attributes of the Diesel name, while taking the brand to distinguished new heights. Meticulously handmade in Esteli, Nicaragua, Grind begins with a robust, but well-aged blend of long leaf ligeros, hand selected for their rich and smooth character. This powerful core is complemented by an impressive Ecuador Habano Sun Grown Oscuro wrapper. A dark, sultry, and inviting leaf. This marriage generates a bold, hearty smoke that is powerful and elegant, delivering droves of rich balanced flavor. Full-bodied but exquisitely smooth, Grind dishes out notes of earth, cedar, coffee, and spice overtop hints of cream and tobacco. An eventful and unprecedented Diesel experience, destined to appease any enthusiast, Diesel Grind raises the bar for boutique handmades across the country.
The Diesel Grind is currently available only to licensed resellers exclusively from Meir and Dutch. You won’t want to miss this one, so request them at your local tobacco store.
HAIR OF THE DOG
A full-bodied, full-flavored Nicaraguan handmade that bites you back with a raw, unadulterated melee of flavor and strength. A savory combination of bold, Nicaraguan long-leaf tobaccos from Esteli and Ometepe, skillfully married with Piloto Cubano long-fillers inside a spicy San Andres binder. On the outside, a thick and redolent Ecuador Habano ligero wrapper glistens with oils. The blend is dense and assertive, issuing a deep, concentrated series of oak, leather, earth, coffee, and hearty spices throughout the burn. The bouquet is powerful and complex, seemingly growing more intense by the minute.
