The Diesel Sunday Gravy series makes its saucy return with the third release in the line: Rosamarino, made in Nicaragua by A.J. Fernandez for Forged Cigar Company.
It started in July when Forged, a distribution arm of Scandinavian Tobacco Group, released its first Diesel Sunday Gravy San Marzano brand. Then, in October, the Sunday Gravy Pecorino made its way to market. On February 28, the Diesel Sunday Gravy Rosamarino will be shipping to retailers. According to Forged, the name Rosamarino is supposed to be a nod to the complexity that rosemary lends to any dish, however, the Italian translation for the word “rosemary” is rosmarino without the “a.”
Not that there’s any dried rosemary in the cigar. Instead, Diesel Sunday Gravy Rosamarino consists solely of Nicaraguan tobacco, including a binder from Condega and a filler blend of tobacco from Condega, Estelí and the volcanic island of Ometepe.
The cigars come in one size, a Toro that measures 6 inches by 50 ring gauge. It’s sold in 10-packs and retails for $4.99 per cigar before taxes.
The intention is for different Sunday Gravy blends to be released quarterly, and Forged anticipates the next release to come out in April.
