Diamond Crown Cigars
The Diamond Crown cigar is, in considering the name as prosaically as possible, a rare gem that stands as a king among mild to medium ultra-premium smokes. Fortunately, the cigar can make its own claim to the throne as rightful heir, the offspring of two cigar-making royalties. Handmade by Tabacalera A. Fuente to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the J.C Newman Cigar Company using Dominican tobaccos enrobed in an exclusive Connecticut Fermented Wrapper, this cigar is simply damn good.
A hefty ring gauge, all size 54 with one larger exception, allows the entire Diamond Crown line to provide maximum leaf-packed flavor. When first pulled from its protective cellophane the color and aroma of the cigar gives the impression of a light Corojo wrapper, but this is because the Connecticut wrapper has been double fermented for a more robust character. Any thoughts of spiciness or harshness are banished once the cigar is lit, offering mouthfuls of creamy smoke tinged with mace and buttered toast. Midway, the flavors shift to the East with wafting almonds and hints of exotic spices, and your loyalty will be rewarded as the end of the cigar is flush with cream and nutmeg.
Paired with a gin and tonic, any smoker can imagine themselves sitting on a palace balcony enjoying the finer things in life. Expensive when first released, the Diamond Crown's price has remained steady and is now comparable to similar cigars such as Ashton Classic and Zino Platinum Scepter. Try on the Crown. Enjoy the majesty.
