There’s a new limited-edition toro from Diesel coming out called Crucible, the third and final installment of the brand’s “Elixir trilogy.” Retailers can begin to expect receiving shipments of the new smoke early next week, starting on April 26.

Produced in collaboration with A.J. Fernandez and Justin Andrews, senior brand manager at Scandinavian Tobacco Group, Diesel Crucible is a follow-up to Diesel Hair of the Dog and Delirium, limited-edition releases that are part of the “Elixir trilogy.”

Made at the Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez factory in Estelí, the cigar measures 6 inches by 52 ring gauge and has a suggested retail price of $9.99 each. It is rolled with an aged Ecuador Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua. According to the company, the cigar is full-bodied.

Limited to a production of 3,000 boxes, Crucible comes in long wooden boxes of 10 cigars that are split into two compartments of five.

Crucible will be distributed by The Forged Cigar Co., a new subsidiary of STG created to distribute some of its premium cigar lines in the United States.
