Recognized Around the World as one of the Finest Super Premium Cigars Ever Made!
In celebration of J.C. Newman Cigar Co's 100th Anniversary in 1995, Stanford J. Newman joined Carlos Fuente, Sr., to develop an exceptional series of Super Premium cigars. To deliver the richest, most consistent, complex cigar possible, Stanford knew that Diamond Crown would have to be a thick cigar. Although the largest cigars in the early 1990's were 52 ring, Stanford knew that creating a 54 ring - the thickest cigar brand in the world - would allow him to create his goal by blending 6 to 7 individual tobacco leaves together.
Diamond Crown cigars are handmade by the Fuente family with an exclusive Connecticut Fermented Wrapper (CFW) selected from the highest grade of silky, smooth, Connecticut Shade leaves. Unlike almost all other wrappers that are fermented once, Diamond Crown's CFW wrapper is fermented twice to develop a light rosado color and Diamond Crown's sweet, smooth, rich flavor. The Diamond Crown with a natural wrapper is a highly complex, smooth, creamy super premium cigar with flawless construction and a golden, shiny wrapper. The Diamond Crown with a maduro wrapper is a highly complex, rich super premium cigar with hints of chocolate in an elegant, dark wrapper. Dominican Republic binder and filler is aged 5 years. Received "Outstanding" 90, 91 & 92 from Cigar Aficionado.
