Ten years after the release of the wildly popular Diamond Crown, and as fuller-bodied cigars were becoming more popular, Stanford Newman approached Carlos Fuente with a new idea for his treasured Diamond Crown line, a full-bodied version. After three years of perfecting the blend and finding just the right tobaccos, the rare Diamond Crown Maximus was born.
Three legendary cigar families, the Newmans, Fuentes and Olivas, joined forces to create the new Diamond Crown Maximus. The Maximus is made with Carlito Fuente's secret blend of specially aged Dominican filler tobaccos, and a special Ecuadorian tobacco wrapper exclusively grown on the El Bajo region of the Oliva's Ecuador plantation. The Diamond Crown MAXIMUS uses only the richest, hardiest and darkest tobacco from the top priming 'corona' of the plant creating a unique and remarkably smooth, full-flavored cigar.
