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 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 colar and DIAMOND CROWN'S sweet, smooth, rich flavor.
DIAMOND CROWN has been recognized around the world as one of the finest Super Premium cigars ever made.
