Abdel 'AJ' Fernandez was born in San Luis, Cuba, where he studied under his neighbor, the legendary Don Alejandro Robaina.
After nearly two decades of learning and perfecting his craft under Alejandro's guidance, AJ fled Cuba to Esteli, Nicaragua, and established his own cigar factory.
Utilizing traditional Cuban cigar-making techniques, along with several secret family processes, his cigars embrace a unique old world character that's traditional and familiar, but distinctive as well.
His proprietary premium tobaccos are superior in nature and fermented to perfection.
His quality control measures are among the most stringent in the industry.
And his uncanny ability to work with and properly blend tobaccos is nearly unsurpassed.
These qualities all combine and lend themselves to an extremely well-made, premium cigar with brilliant flavor and charisma. Diesel is no exception.
